In A Dilemma

My maid agent has promised to give me a replacement temp maid to exchange with my super slow Cambodian maid by this week. The new replacement temp maid will be another rejected maid, this time an Indonesian maid. Whilst part of me really want to try out another maid, the other part of me is worried that the new temp maid will be worse off than my current Cambodian maid. Besides, I am really very tired of training the new temp maid all over again. Based on my experience with 5 Indon maids, I find Indon maids more cunning than Cambodian maids. Though my current Cambodian maid is super slow, blur and at times appear really dumb, I think I rather keep this type of maid than a cunning maid who has tricks and mischief up their sleeves. On the other hand, my assumption may be wrong. Who knows maybe this new temp Indon maid will turn out well? I'm really in a dilemma now. I have to make a decision by this Friday.

Good luck to you. I'm only now just making application for a maid. Very new to this crazy ball game altogether.

Agree with you Shireen, like everyone ask me why don't i change another new maid? *sigh* i'm sick on training them all over again, and have to wait for the new one to come again, and if indon like you said they are more cunning. Even mine one is slow and blur, always make me angry, what to do, rather than having a smart maid, later bring my boys and run away. *sigh* just open one eye and close one eye, let her work for two years, then let her go back, and no more maid.

Hope ur permanent maid arrive soon!
