The Hoboken Favor
Being a Nanny, I do a lot of stuff for the Parents that I shouldn't. I know that if I didn't work in Hoboken, I wouldn't have to deal with grocery deliveries, missed packages, or even a milk run to the bodega next door. I guess since I'm around all day with the kids, I have to do these things.
But let me tell you. I do not enjoy doing these things.
Why would I want to unpack YOUR groceries or wait around all day for a package that you should have sent to YOUR office. I was hired to be a Nanny, not a house manager. If you want me to be a house manager, I want a salary of at least $120k and a vacation home in the Bahamas.
Please do me a favor: when I do YOUR favors, acknowledge how helpful I am. If I go above and beyond, buy me a gift card to DD or just tell me how much you appreciate me. Since you make me stay at home with two kids on a gorgeous fall day, I would love to hear how grateful you are of me for waiting and unpacking.
Is that so difficult?
