I hired a live-in helper to clean my house and take care of my Grandmother when I’m away at work. She’s been with me for almost half a year, and as an employer, I try to make her feel happy and comfortable working for me.
April 9th was her birthday, and I decided to celebrate her birthday (like how your company celebrates your birthday). So, after work, I went around looking for the
cheapest birthday cake as I’m on a budget and I got my maid a phone for her birthday.
My family has always bought chocolate cakes during birthdays, and this time round, I decided to do away with the traditions and I got a butter cake with strawberry filling.
I wasn’t surprised that that was her first time celebrating her birthday, but I was surprised she didn’t know at which end of the candle to light. I meant when the candle was fitted with this tiny candle holder to hold the candle on the cake. She was asking if it’s at the candle’s tip or the holder’s end.
(so was the phone that I gave her – I’m going to sell it as brand new, and buy another one).
No one could finish the cake slice and I had diarrhoea after eating it. Couldn’t sleep, work the next day was exhausting. However, I got better towards the end of the work, so I went out and drink. Aha.
Then a primary school friend confessed to me.
