Good Afternoon friends 🙂
A short incident today. I have a maid working at home for washing utensils and sweeping and wiping the floor. She is supposed to come at a particular time in the morning before I leave for work, but always comes late. So I gave her an option either to come on time or split the work to do half in the morning and other half in the evening. She agreed to it. This conversation was day before yesterday, on Sunday. Again yesterday morning she came late, did half the work and left. Evening came, we waited and waited for her to come. She didn’t. I was all mad at her, ready to give her notice in the morning.
This morning she came quite early. I asked her the reason for it, and she replied that she had left her early morning work of some other house. It has happened many times before, that I have lost my cool with her, but by the time she comes for work, I’m sufficiently recovered to control my anger and talk to her normally. So, I patiently asked her about yesterday’s absence. And she very innocently replied, I forgot!! 😀 😀 .
I could definitely understand, me being a forgetful person and this being the first day of our agreement to split the work. So, her “forgot” gave me an early morning dose of laughter (which I think surprised her too. She must’ve been expecting some fire bombs from me 😉 ).
Good day 🙂
