I could not
I could never work in Human Resources Department. I could never fire someone.
I have been thinking about letting our housekeeper go for the longest time.
The kids have begged me.
Tommie has asked me.
My mother in law told me.
She gave me enough reason.
But I could not.
I looked at her good points. Her raising a child on her own. For the longest time I could not.
Language is a huge problem. She doesn’t understand Afrikaans and doesn’t understand my English either.
I offered for her to work three days a week and learn from an older housekeeper with more experience. She declined.
So she is leaving the end of this month.
I feel so bad. I know I should have done this a long time ago. I still feel bad though.
