I fail to understand the fixation my mom has with her maid. Actually not just her maid, she has a fixation with my maid as well.
The first question on my daily call to her is inevitably “Maid came?” followed by “Cook came?” No mom, they didn’t and what will you sitting hundreds of miles away?
I know what she will do; she will curse her if she didn’t come. After all, the darling daughter will have to do the work.
So maid is a very integral part of my mom’s life. Each time I speak to her, the maid gets a mention. Either she was very good that day, or she was bad. Either she did some extra work without asking, or she didn’t finish her work!!
Mom – Radha came late today
Me – Mom I am in Singapore
Mom – Good, I almost thought she won’t come.
Me – ok, I am running late for my meeting with the Chairman of my company
Mom – Oh, so I scolded Radha and she almost replied back
Me – Mom, I if I don’t make it on time he will fire me
Mom – Don’t worry, but Radha has become very rude!!
Me – Mom, I just got ran over by a bus
Mom – Oh, but how can Radha be so rude??
And the story goes on………
