You’ve probably heard of maid experiencing domestic violence, but it’s the other way around in my house. My maid has been verbally insulting my aunt of special needs for the longest time and I don’t know what to do.
At the slightest things, she behaves extremely aggressively and hurls insults at my aunt. For instance, sometimes my aunt asks her if she needs to take a particular medicine. I don’t get why the maid can’t give her a polite and kind answer, as it’s a reasonable question. Instead she replies like this:
HOW MANY TIMES YOU WANT TO ASK ME THE SAME QUESTION I ALREADY TOLD YOU LATER (when in actual fact, she literally chose to ignore the previous questions of my aunt).
And then when it’s dinner time, instead of calling her to eat, she says
DINNER READY ALR YOU DK HOW TO COME OUTSIDE AND EAT IS IT
Another one, just today morning. Apparently the kitchen tap wasn’t working but my aunt didn’t know about it and accidentally touched it. And the maid literally screamed:
STOP TOUCHING BC OF YOU ONLY I ALWAYS GET SCOLDING
I wasn’t there during this third incident but I heard it from my mother. My blood is boiling right now and these kind of aggressions towards my aunt, who you should be taking care of, not ill treating, is really getting out of hand.
I have gotten into nasty arguments with the maid before where I was this close to hitting her, but restrained myself. My parents had numerous talks with her but they only work for a few days where she pretentiously starts sweettalking, and then starts her usual shit again. I feel like she’s just gotten too comfortable in our house and has clearly overstepped her borders, which I feel should’ve been more assertively placed from the beginning but it’s too late now. She’s been here for almost 10 years.
Is there something else I can do? I am very protective of my aunt and I literally cannot tolerate her being mistreated like this anymore. Is there a way I can involve police or MOM? Please let me know.
EDIT: I’ve also had conversations with my parents about getting another maid. But they seem to have gotten too comfortable with her. Also, apparently she has loans that she still hasn’t settled with them.
