I fly back out. I was pretty sure I was going to get the job because they liked things about me like that I don't swear or drink or date recklessly, etc.
But I have been here for three months and I have what you New Yorkers would call a beef.
The kids are great. I have no problems with the kids.
I did agree to do light housekeeping. Unfortunately, for me, this has opened up the door to some things that I think are hypocritical.
The mom leaves me her lingerie to wash. It isn't basic, but is odd. One pair of underwear has no crotch and has a whistle hanging to it by a tie. I am too hand-wash those in the bathroom sink. I find it revolting.
I change the bedding. How little do you think of your nanny to have her strip your semen soaked sheets?
I pick up the laundry from the kids after they change because they never put it in the laundry basket. The reason is the mom, she leaves her laundry on the floor for me to pick up. This includes underwear with used maxi pads still attached or blood soaked underwear.
The bathroom garbage can has mini vodka bottles in it most mornings. (1-2) If I don't empty it, what happens if the two year old wanders in there and plays with them, drains them?
The wife also makes disparaging comments about her husband to me or inappropriate comments. For example, she called him a"fucking idiot" to his face and then looked to me and said, "I put up with it because he's hung like a horse."
Here is my question. Why did these people go out of their way to secure a Mormon nanny? She in particular seems to have no values whatsoever. She's a terribly, impatient and narcissistic mother.
I figured it out.
Wait for it.
I thought I was getting a great gig. Room and board and $450 CASH per week.
It wasn't the religion or the morals that they sought but the payrate.
I am really upset not just to find myself in this situation, but to find myself in a situation where the Jamaican nanny next door is making $850!
