This is happened to a lot of people, I've heard stories all over the place. Even just recently me myself had talk about my sister in law maid wanted to going back home but the permit has few month balance. We were pursuit the little girl (maid) to stay tune until the permit expired. Furthermore my sister in-law is pregnant therefore she need more helps. So we been talking about my maid who already worked with me ; as same as a duration that I've been working with the company that I attached too now. They had told me that how lucky I am ... I was compliment her . She's good... honestly... I'm not demanding so as long as my children have been taking care of; me and my husband are orite.~
Well the feeling is until you have experienced it yourself , you would not believe that these is real.
Yeah ... my bibik (maid) run away ~ after less that 24hours I met my sister in-law...
The story begin , when she told me that she wanted to visit her friend some where near to my place. I was about to going back to home town and she decided not to follow( for the first time, after 2 1/2 years) but wanted to overnight at her friend places. Since she been working with me for two years and the half I never allow her to join any friend to shopping or what ever. Of course she got 2 days off - but in house. So I decided to agreed on that planed. I trust her. She never do things that not suppose to do .. you know maid ~ they are superb... brilliant mind but honestly I never doubt on her.
Basically she's good. She have no problem at all with us. She treat my children s like her own children s. She's very close with my youngest son. Let me share with you all if you guys forgot. I have 3 children s and the youngest is 12 years old. Reason to have maid at home is I need an assistants. My hubby always not at home~ so please imagine how struggles she is with 3 children s!( bodo kan bukan kena suap makan pun anak aku )
So on 3rd February 2011 , I HAVE SENT HER to her friend places. Gotten her friend hand phone and unit no ; I have given a full trust to her. She asked me to withdrew her salary and I did it , but I keep the balance of one month salary. I never thought that it was the last time I saw her.
We were talking in the car , and she told me that please call her early , so she can prepare her stuff when the time that I'll suppose to pick her up . How could you imagine 44 years old bibik , who works with you for almost 700days can just go like that! She act like nothing will be happened but I'm sure she have planned this earlier.
She called me at 2pm after 4 hours I dropped her at her friend apartment and told me that she's looking for better job! I'm so speechless ! It's happened when we all is on our way back to my hometown. I'm so frustrated and I cant accept why she did this to me.
~ well , finally we cope with it , my hubby was doing her check out memo.~ We take it with the good faith. Things happened always with reason. I have to accept the weakness from my side. But of course deep inside my heart-perhaps she don't do this to us because we love her so much . She part of our family anyway. My mom's always said she's good. She's pray and she's old.. so she's not like other maid out there you know, so we missed her~
BUT after a week the bloody fucker sms-ing my hubby and asked to bank in the balance of her money. FUCK YOU!! you have run away , and you dare to sms-ing us and asked your balance of your salary. Did you know that we have to pay for your check out memo because your visa are still valid? and cost us a month of your salary bloody old woman! I got so frustrated and I did not know how to share.I never thought that she will do this to us. Fine, you have run way, we finally decided to just take as faith and again you sms-ing us out of nowhere. Further in the message , she claimed that she's not happy and made a complaint that I always late paid her and that she gets beaten up(mentally). HAAAAAAA??????!!!!!! Gosh, I’ll bet my hubby REALLY wants to beat her up now!!! What lies…….*sigh*
I don't know if I have treated her badly. So far I cant even remember when I shouted at her. I was treat her good like someone who older than me.Very much respect but they always take us for granted. As my husband always remind me if happen I want to recruit a new bibik please have a barrier. But being a working mother I want to treat my bibik part of my family hoping that my children s will be taking care off.
My hubby right now at the Indon embassy…….let’s see what happens. I just wanted to warn you that even if you are nice to a maid and give her no reason to leave you, she could still turn away from you because the lure of the agent’s money is greater. Consider yourself warned~
Now my children s helping me out. Almost two weeks we don't have a maid at home and we still managed to survive. And we have decided not to have a maid ~
