Perspective & Opinion
Things My Insane Employer Has accused me of stealing over the course of 9 months in her employ.
I say accused as in,
She: "Nanny, have you seen my X?"
She: "Nanny isn't it strange how things just up & disappear?"
$100 Gift Certificate to Baby Gap
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (more than once)
Lighters (both inexpensive and expensive)
one pair of Abercrombie Corduroy Jeans
tin of "expensive" pistachios
Emerald and pearl Bracelet
Michael Stars T-Shirts
White floral silk clothes hangers (many)
Brown Leather jacket
Little boys Velcro Sketchers sneakers
a multi pack of thank you cards
Down Comforter (white)
Bean and Bacon Soup, in a can. More than once!
Pink & Black cashmere sweater
Giuseppe Zanotti Gold Strappy Sandals, size 7 1/2 *
She: Nanny, have you seen my gold strappy sandals?
She: There size 7 1/2.
She: They're Giuseppe Zanotti.
Me: Um, no.
Alexander McQueen Sandals in black, size 8 (similar conv. as above)
Cell phone charger (for her phone, even though she was by then aware I carried a different)
I made this list because on Friday afternoon, Mrs. X accosted me in the kitchen and asked, "Have you seen my fondue set?"
She: "It's ceramic"
Me: No, haven't seen it.
She: I guess it's gone and walked away on it's own.
I left work Friday in a foul mood. By Saturday afternoon, I was livid and realized I just could not take this woman anymore! I wish I could warn the next nanny what she was in for! There should be a public service database for those such warnings! She never had a single complaint with regard to how I treated her children or how I did my job, but she didn't hesitate to accost me on a regular basis regarding "missing items". Good riddance!
PS This list is INCOMPLETE!
