To fire my nanny?

(75 Posts)

I am a widower, and a single father to 7 children. Since my wife died I have employed various nannies to help me handle this responsibility. They never seem to last long...

My current nanny has been dressing my children up in rags, answering back, and teaching them god awful songs to sing to my new gorgeous girlfriend. She has also been hiding my eldest DD's love affair with a racist boy from me.

WIBU to send her back to the convent we got her from?

She sounds like trouble, sack the bitch!

StanleyLambchop Mon 31-Dec-12 17:40:58

And stop blowing that bloody whistle!!!

And can you get Gretel's adenoids done please and tell her to mime.

Do you know she thinks the hills are alive?

I also reckons she is knocking off Uncle Max...have you seen the way those two look at each other?

and there's this lovely baroness I know..

she'd make a super mum.

i have no advice on your nanny, but i hear you're throwing a spectacular party soon, a sort of anti fascist fundraiser? please can i come? i'm very good at drinking champagne and slagging off the nazis.

The kids love he, she works all the hours god sends and she believes in cheap/free entertainment for kids. Marry her and you'll get extra benefits and not even have to pay her any more!

LeeCoakley Mon 31-Dec-12 18:04:57

Can I shag you?

NonnoMum Mon 31-Dec-12 18:05:24

Did you get her from a reputable agency? Or did you just contact the local nunnery?
Does she have any skills she could offer? Is she musical in any way?

I don't think you'd have any MIL trouble somehow.

BTW watch out for your eldest girl. I think she should let her try a sip of champagne. She is 17 FGS!

Tee2072Thing Mon 31-Dec-12 18:09:35

Watch out for that Rolf, he is well aware your oldest is 16 going on 17.

Can I offer you a bit of advice? When you find yourself having to flee Salzburg in a hurry to escape the Nazis, don't go over the mountains. You will find yourself in Germany, not Switzerland. You should know by now that Salzburg is close to the German border !! (or ask your Governess, she has spent alot of time up them mountains!!)

High on the hills lives a lonely goatherd, possibly she'd be happier with his carefree lifestyle.

meMillyme Mon 31-Dec-12 18:18:30

YABU; you loved her from the moment she sat on that pinecone.

ShipwreckedAndComatose Mon 31-Dec-12 18:18:52

I do sense you are feeling concerned and worried about all this.

How do you feel about whiskers on kittens?

Hesterton Mon 31-Dec-12 18:23:46

A quiet word with ofsted perhaps?

And you might need to discuss H&S with her too, she's letting them up trees.

ElphabaTheGreen Mon 31-Dec-12 18:29:16


She should only be looking after six of your children as your oldest definitely doesn't need a governess.

DonderandBlitzen Mon 31-Dec-12 18:40:39

Hmm. She does sound like a bit of a flibbertigibbet

ReindeerHooves Mon 31-Dec-12 18:45:15

Sack her. Give me the job. I would lock the children in a small room so they couldn't do anything common or noisy and take you outside to that lovely summer house and do unspeakably filthy things to you.

I may or may not be ovulating <eyes up dh>

ShiftyFades Mon 31-Dec-12 18:56:14

Yabu. Who else would teach your children to sing and cycle at the same time? It's a rare talent and probably useful confused

Doe a deer...

ShipwreckedAndComatose Mon 31-Dec-12 19:05:11

...a female deer.
