We have all heard tales of nannies and house helps lie to their employers. They do this in the most innocent of ways by pulling on your heartstrings.
By the time you find out you have been foxed, it is too late. You have sent them fare and they have moved on to another employer.
Since this is 2019, I’m hoping the lies will be different. But in case they are not, here are some of the top excuses and lies by the house help.
They will give you an insight into deciphering your househelp’s mood. If she is still going to work for you or nah!
