Hey, You?

I’ve had a new housekeepr for almost a year; it’s a mother and son duo. But I don’t know the mother’s name. In fact, I don’t think I ever learned it because she doesn’t speak. Don’t get me wrong, she speaks Portugese to her son, but after 15 years in this country, not so much as a “hi.” Sometimes I’ll get a smile, but most of the time she walks past me as if I’m not there.

I’m sure you can imagine my apprehension when I have to leave for work and leave instructions with her; it goes like this…

me: (Charades Mode) Baby sleeping; no vacuum; shh. Thanks (bow).
