Wanted: Housekeeper

I let my housekeeper go today.  Two reasons:

1. She is on welfare.
2. She is litigious.

Regarding point number 2.  She is moving out of a rent house and she constantly tells me she is suing her landlord for this or that.

I figure I'm next.  She slips and suddenly I have a lawsuit on my hands.

Point number 2 actually relates to point number 1.  You see, she has never in the last 20 years worked for anything she has. And she has a lot, thanks to taxpayers.

But she places no value on her landlord providing her with a nice place to live.

I place all the value on it. I'm on the landlord's side. This fellow, whoever he is, worked and made enough money to have a rent house.  Now he has an ungrateful, useless HUD recipient threatening to sue him.  

To her, this means nothing because she has no idea what it takes to work for something and no idea what it would be like to have someone useless gang up with the useless legal system and government to take it away.

I won't help her do it.

Just visiting from a link on Gayle's blog. I couldn't agree more.

It's what you have to do. Not just for slips or accidents, either, but for anything your housekeeper decides is unfair or unjust or unequal might you find yourself in a lawsuit.

This is the time to do it. She's probably too busy with her landlord to bother filing a wrongful termination suit (which, keep in mind, have been filed against employers who have had the temerity to fire employees who never showed up to work. But those employees showed up to court.

Ooooo. I hadn't thought about that wrong termination thing. And she has the full force of a dozen do-gooder social workers on her side, too.

I am just praying this is the last I hear from her.

Litigious and temerity two good words to steal.

I'm not on you housekeeper's side but what if the landlord inherited the property from an ansestor who only got rich by bleeding the poor dry in the first place? Isn't she just getting back a bit of her rightful inheritance?

Your ancestor stole $20 from my ancestor. With interest, that comes to $1,859,000. Pay up.

As a landlord, I completely understand. As a former administrator, I also understand. The time I spent covering my rear in HR issues could have been doing useful things.

BTW, visiting from a comment you left at Patrick's.
