Top 10 Yaya Answers

Advertisements

A couple of days ago, our kasambahay said that she will be leaving us already. When asked why, she just gave a vague “may aasikasuhin kasi ako” and did not explain further. I’ve since prodded her to say more but haven’t been successful. I have asked about the usual concerns like compensation, load work, rest, days-off, which she all denied to have issues with.

The situation has inspired me to come up with this list.

Top 10 Yaya Answers to the Question “O, bakit ka na aalis?”

10. Ma’am, wala po kasing mainit na tubig yung shower.

2. Ma’am, kasi po ang sarap ng luto niyo, it’s ruining my diet!

1. Ma’am, LCD TV lang po kasi yung TV sa kwarto namin, e sa kaptibahay, Smart TV na!

So, which is it, yaya??

  1. Nakakaloka diba? Nako, whenever a helper says the line na magpapaaalam na sila. I just let them go. I learned not to ask anymore because they never give you an honest answer anyway.

    Loved your humor on this, though!

      1. only a couple of months. the one before her (who was actually the mother of the one still remaining) lasted a year. I hope this won’t be the start of a string of short-term yayas or worse, no yayas at all! let me know kung may mahanap kang extra 😀

        1. Will do 🙂 Bakit ang mga kasambahay dati nabibilang sa years ang stay? Nowadays, it’s just months? Although naka 2 years na naman itong nagpaalam.

  2. Hi, guys!
    Based on our experienced ang hirap na humanap ng yaya na mapagkakatiwalaan. Tayo pa nga ang nag aadjust sa kanila most of the time. 7 months pa lng kami sa aming new place nka dalawang helper na kami. Most of the time isa akong “Multitasking Mom’ with 2 kids. naku! goodluck to me. 😉

    1. Hay, tama ka dyan! I have a friend nga na umalis na din daw mga kasambahay nila. Though kakapagod physically, ang sarap naman daw ng feeling niya hehe. No more yaya blues.

      1. Kakapagod nga pero sarap talaga ng feeling pag wala nang ibang iniintindi. I still need help, though so family members come to visit a lot and a stay-out cleaning lady comes in regularly to lighten the load. Best of both worlds, sa tingin ko. Walang yaya blues, pero malinis pa rin ang bahay! :p

  3. Funny post. I can’t relate kasi never ko naghire ng yaya or helper. Pero may naalala ko sa relatives ko, umalis agad yaya kesyo mas malaki pa daw bahay nila. #angyaman

  4. Natawa talaga ako dito.. “Ma’am, kasi po allergic ako sa peanut butter, dapat po Nutella.” This post made my day.. Pero yun nga, hirap talaga humanap ng yaya, as in! Pasalamat talaga ako may tita ako, yun nga lang madami rin akong problema sa kanya.. Hayz!
