The nanny and us have departed company.... not on amicable terms (long story involving disciplinary).
We wrote to her asking for her to return our house keys which was a week ago now and we know she got the letter on the day we put it through her door to either drop them off or arrange for us to pick them up.
What do I do now? Wait it out? Change the locks and deduct her final monies?
That might be the easiest answer, Bubble. Btw - if they are yale locks, you can just buy new lock barrels and keys, and you can fit the lock barrel yourself (or at least, dh can) - it is far cheaper than a new lock.
angrypixie - no she's not called Mel.... we've tried to be amicable about it all and she's the one playing difficult. We owe her notice pay at the end of this month on her normal payday maybe she feels this is a way of ensuring I pay up?!!! Some kind of blackmail perhaps.
Ragardless of how you parted terms this is a completely unacceptable way to behave however she feels you have treated her (speaking as a nanny) It's totally unprofessional. Feel like apologising on her behalf, we are not all like this not that you'd believe it reading on the internet but there are some good eggs out there. Hope you get somebody else or an arrangement that works better for you
