This is going to be a rant.
I employ various people to do things in the house. Unlike most blind people, I have no funding available to me, I pay them from my own earned income. I am on a low income with no real prospects of this increasing but consider some things worth paying for.
At the end of last week one person phoned and said they were sorry, something had come up, could they leave it for that week. Then yesterday another person texted and said that they had too much on and could they make it another day.
I’m fed up of this. Do these people think they’re coming to do little jobs for me as a favour?
The answer is no.
I’m somehow going to have to get it across to these people that they are there to provide a regular service. I deserve reasonable explanations for absence as any other employer would, and failure to provide this will, from now on contribute towards loss of regular work.
I’m blind, I’m not needy. I have high expectations of my staff and will pay them accordingly.
