    waste time finding out if she needs to go court? seems to me she wants another bloody day off - ( she had the whole of las week off - ) I just need some one to look after the kids whilst I service the masses over the internet.


    - so wasting 20 mins on here to find out seems like a good trade off.. unless I get sucked off onto a tangent debate,,,,,,
    You don't have to give her a day off to go to court. Take it off her as time in lieu at the end. Or make her work next Sunday

    hah ok guys - thats what I meant about being dragged into a tangent..

    lets have a quick summary.

    the question as posed was does my helper need to go to court or not tomorrow...

    she wrote a letter - we havent actually recieved a response..
    altho I later found a little slip that said if u plead by post - u dont have to go.. they will contact u within 10 days to let u know what they decided..

    if we could keep our answers 'on topic' - saving your judgements about what I shoulda coulda mighta done. or what u would do if u werre me..

    I listen to all your advice- share it with my partner an we decide what course of action feels right for us..

    My advice:

    Do nothing. Tell your helper to fix her own problems. If she takes the day off, take it off her salary.

    Simple.

    of course asking for advice on a forum is better then calling the court confirming whether the maid has to show up or not.

    hah - u edited that a bit..

    when I liked your post it was cos I liked part of it,, not all of it..

    not trying to vent - was jus finding out if any one else has

    a) written a letter pleding guilty in a similiar case

    b) find out if they would respond saying they got it - no need to come - we'll let u know what the wiggy one says ..

    c) whilst I dont really care for this woman in my employ who has frustrated me - I dont necessarily want to generate a pile of shit for her.. so I am spendin a few mins to find out points a and b.... i had this stupid idea that if I treat her with respect etc - then she might return the favour...

    The arrogance of the average expat is personified in this post.

    Hey I've got a different solution. Would you have one in London? No. So why feel the need to have someone clean up after you here. Oh coz they're cheap labour, that's right. Iron your own shirts, take your own empties out.

    Vile.

    And as for 'Take it off her salary'. Unbelievable.
