Maids: Pain in the Ass

Nowadays, it isn't easy to find the right maid for our house or kids. I've noticed that most maids are very abusive, liars, hard-headed, and other negative attitudes that we may hardly think that they could be. I am not looking for a perfect maid but I am looking for someone who is sincere with her work and knows how to respect her employers. I don't really get it why most of them have to be like those attitudes that I've mentioned above. If they don't want that kind of work then don't! They're just giving their employers headache.

If you are nice and kind to them, they would abuse it and later on they would just do want they want to do. They would even manipulate us. Ask for a day off aside from Sunday and go back not on the agreed date and time. But they are expecting to get their whole monthly salary which I find if unfair. If you scold at them because they broke or did something, they would say that they have a bad employer and would curse you or worse say bad words to you. They are fond of saying "hindi ko alam" (I don't know) when they are asked something especially when they did something wrong inside house. They are good liars.

They don't do their tasks in the house properly but they would give you dramas like we are very poor and so on, I am raising my (many) kids, my mother/father is sick, and other excuses just to get their salary in advance. But the quality of their work, it's very bad!

I am not saying that all of the maids have this type of character but most of we get are. I am very sick and tired of their stupid attitude. So, I think I have to practice myself living without a maid. I have to cook our meal, clean the house, do the laundry and chores. I think it's better that way than to pay someone who is not doing a good job and will just waste everything in the house (like dishwashing liquid, detergent, etc.).

I think I can save a lot living without a maid. Besides, there will be a peace of mind and our things is guaranteed safe inside the house. So I think we should all try our best not to depend on them so in the future, we won't be needing them and that's the consequence of their bad attitude because I think they are taking it for advantage that most household are in need of a maid/house helper.
