I found the microwave plate today that I swore for three weeks the maid had stolen

I don't feel guilty.

In fact I'm more pissed at her now for misplacing it and making me all knotted up in anxiety than if she actually just stole it.

She put it at the back of the cabinet where pots and pans go. Why would she put it there?

Seriously, OP? $18 for this?

Microwave plate? You got all worked up at someone for "stealing" an item that could be bought at any Dollar Tree? I'm on her side

Yes, she MADE you get all knotted up with anxiety over the missing microwave plate!

Certainly that extreme emotional reaction to things needing to be in order, controlled and dependable at all times or else! has nothing to do with your childhood. Nothing at all.

You put it back there with your Canadian Club empties and forgot.

You're an alcoholic and it's hurting the people around you!

Buck never would have misplaced the microwave plate.

You should you little shit.

Oh Christ why would she steal your microwave plate?

By the way, no one makes you get all knotted up. Own your neuroticism you anxiety ridden fool.

My friend, you have a poultergoose. But I'd fire the maid anyway. After all, who won the war? Not them.

You worried for three weeks about a stupid microwave plate?

You are an idiot.

Why would anyone steal a microwave plate?

You're a fucking weirdo, OP. She should quit. You can clean up your own shit.

Yeah, I saw last night's Downton Abbey too, OP.

Ha, it's common ploy for household staff to hide items elsewhere in the home to see if you will miss them. They wait a period of time and if you don't say anything, they take it. If you mention it, they pull it out of hiding and tell you it must have been misplaced.

I wouldn't blame her if she stabbed you to death.

My cleaning lady broke my microwave plate. The plate that came with the microwave, that goes around and around. The one she bought to replace it didn't fit correctly, causing a spill which shorted out the carousel motor.

OP: Did you let her out of the cellar yet?

If I had a microwave, I could make lean cuisines. But they are full of salt and chemicals, so I guess I should continue to avoid these things by not having a microwave.

[R26] I do most of my cooking in a microwave and never buy prepared meals, frozen or otherwise.

Try the bisquick recipe for blender pumpkin pie in the microwave.

She didn't misplace it. She borrowed it and now he has returned it.

She's Gaslighting you.

Next step, the salt and pepper shakers are going to go missing.

You in danger, girl!

Word to the wise: do NOT try her chocolate pie.

I am proud to say that I am completely unaware whether or not we have a "microwave plate," or a microwave, for that matter. That is Cook's responsibility. I suppose I could check the accounts to see if she had requested the purchase of such a thing, but I don't see that it is a concern of mine.

As for Mrs. Wilson, our housekeeper, misplacing a microwave plate, I don't see how that would be possible, since Cook manages the kitchen, larder and pantry quite apart from the rest of the house. Mrs. Wilson does have her own kitchenette in her rooms, but she would have her own equipment for those rare times that she does not take meals with the rest of the staff. And since all the housemaids work for Mrs. Wilson, and the scullery maids work for Cook, there really is no way confusion between their domains would have occurred, much less risen to our attention upstairs.

OP, you need to stop meddling and focus your time where it more properly belongs (hunting season being at its peak, and the holidays are approaching), or admit you live in the type of squalor where your reference to a "maid" is some sort of euphemism for an impoverished household with a day worker coming in, and with your hovering like a senile widow expecting everyone to attempt to steal her bed curtains while she has her eyes closed.

Clean your own place, you exploitive trog. You are acting out your guilt, ruining your life, covering your feelings of shame at putting someone at an economic disadvantage to you to cleaning your own trail of debris.

You are about as smart as a dachshund.

So you thought she was a thief but you didn't fire her?

In retrospect, that's a good thing, but why would you continue to let someone you thought was a thief handle your belongings?

by Anonymousreply 3410/29/2013

Why would the maid steal a microwave plate? And why would losing a microwave plate have you "knotted up" with anxiety? Let it go.

Never be nice to the help, OP. We frisk Consuela every time she enters and leaves.
