Should I allow my maid to bring her own handphone?


Should I allow my maid to bring her own handphone?


My experience tells me that no hand phones save me a lot of trouble.  

I had a maid that talk from morning to night on her hand phones (she has more than one hand phone) with her friends and sometimes, she was so focused on her conversation that, she forgot about what she was doing before and after and it is either most of the tasks were left half done or when mom calls for her help, she cannot hear it.   

When mom want to give her instruction to do things, she has to wait for her to finish her phone conversation with her friends, and the worst thing is she is constantly on the phone, so there is no way mom can do that.   

Image if there is an emergency situation and mom needed her help, this help will never come, this is not good at all.  

There were incidents that she allow workers to come into the house without informing me or my family because she is on the phone talking to her friend, she not only leave the door open, she also let the workers walk in and out of the house without supervision, then she went up to the 3rd floor to clean the toilet, she expect the workers to come looking for her when they are done with their work.  

She give us promises that she will not talk on the phone during her working hours but what she usually will do is only not talk on the phone in front of me, she continue to talk on the phone in front of mom and other family members at home. 

 After many counselling, nothing had changed.  Later we discovered money missing in the house, we suspect she steal it to pay her hand phone bills.  On her off day, she always come home with lots of new purchase, with her salary, she cannot afford all this. 

Since she develops this stealing habit and was no longer helpful to the family, plus her performance hit rock bottom, she was fired and sent back.  We did not want to return her to the agency because she will never change and it will continue to cause lot of problem to her new employer. 

Here I would also urge all employers to not tolerate with such abuse from the maid.

One more important thing is after her departure, money did not go missing anymore, so we are very sure she did it.
