issue no. 2. when i had her interviewed, i told her that i terminated my previous nanny because she can't seem to fulfill her work schedule. she would come back on a monday at noontime even when we agreed that she would come back on Sunday after her saturday off. thankfully, i was still on maternity leave at that time. this time, i expected her not to do the same. but i was wrong. she would leave at dawn on saturday and would keep a trend of coming back on mondays at 4 a.m. she always had reasons for everything. blah blah blah. i was tired of her lame excuses. still, we kept our patience because our monday work was not jeopardized because she would arrive at dawn, although she would really rob us an extra hour of sleep because we would be awakened from our sleep when she comes knocking on our door so early. this went unsolved because she would agree to come back on sunday before she would leave the house and then come back on a monday with a different excuse each time.
issue no. 3. she can't cook for herself. well, she can boil lots of things. and fry a little. so if we can't leave her cooked dinner, she would have boiled eggplant. boiled okra. fried dried fish. mind you, she would drive me nuts because she has a lot of things she said she wouldn't eat. no, i don't eat this. i don't eat that.
issue no. 4. she complains about the cloth diapers. they're washable and re-usable. hubby and i decided to use cloth diapers for dipdip during daytime so that we could prevent or minimize diaper rash. we only want her to use disposable diaper during the evening. she wouldn't directly complain to us. she would either talk to the baby or talk to the yayas in the neighborhood. there was even a time that she would sneak in a disposable diaper inside a cloth diaper. she was embarrassed when we caught her on the act. thankfully, it was the first and the last time that she did that. bottomline, she's lazy. she wants less or no laundry. all we asked her to do was to wash dipdip's clothing, including diapers.
issue no. 5. last week, she left us friday night when she's not supposed to. i knew she's excited to go home for the fiesta and get drunk. she came back on a monday morning looking sick. and pretended to have a cough. she said she has fever but when i took her temperature, it was a 34.6. Liars go to hell! then she told me she had hypertension and would like to go to the health center for a checkup. i had to take a leave of absence to attend to the baby.
