You may remember my post about my confusion over a note our mae baan (Thai for house help) left us one day. Here’s the note she left us this week:
It almost breaks your heart. We must be the most heartless people she’s ever worked for in order for her to feel that she had to write out such a desperate call for love and attention.
I have to admit, I feel a little guilty every time I read it even though I know what she’s trying to say. She’s learning some English, but it still doesn’t always come out the way she wants it to.
She wants the cleaning products, “Comfort” and “Touch of Love” to help her clean the bathroom.
(Even so, maybe we should tell her how much we appreciate her more often.)
