What a charmer!

that journalist seems to make a living out of writing about how incredibly rich and well-connected she is and how crap her staff are. She is the less-indebted equivalent of Rosie Millard.

Guess it takes all sort eh. Hope I never meet up with her tho. Can you imagine having to work for her!!!!

all together now ... Silly Season Silly Season Silly Season

sadly I thought the media had grown out of this kind of us-and-them stirring garbage. Nannies are people and parents are people and they're in a close and complex employment situation and sometimes it gels and sometimes it doesn't. Oh but that wouldn't sell/pad the letters page with something other than Iraq etc. would it. Sorry

no sympathy whatsoever. Horrid pathetic woman who should try doing something constructive with her life

I wonder what Nannyjob's take on this dreadful woman is
There are two fairly scathing letters about the article in today's Independent I notice!

hatstand Wed 20-Jul-05 12:57:51

binkie - why on earth did you think they'd grown out if it?

ScummyMummy Wed 20-Jul-05 12:59:56

Oh dear... she sounds like very hard work. I actually feel sorry for people this crap, though! She has NO eq or whatever it is that makes people a little bit nice so that they have people who like them around.

this 'writer' of this piece is obviously an arrogant superficial bint who clearly expects all nannies to be servile and obedient dogs with no life of their own and no right to expect anything .Who the fuck does she think she is???? what a about a superiority complex. I hope her husband shagged them all !!!! the implication at the end of the piece is that she chose the Portuguese nanny because in her opinion foreigners are thick and gullible. Can you tell I'm fuming....!

ScummyMummy Wed 20-Jul-05 13:10:25

See? Donnie hates her too! She must have NO mates.

binkie Wed 20-Jul-05 13:11:02

hatstand, 'cos I'm naive

kissalot Wed 20-Jul-05 13:16:46

What an awful woman - the last two paragraphs were unbelievable, what a snobby cow. What do any nannies have to say about this???!!

monkeytrousers Wed 20-Jul-05 18:41:58

Sorry, I don't see what the fuss is about. It's just a filler. Why would anyone pity her kids? For having lots of different nannies?

Don't you think that's just a tad of an overreaction Don?

I am a nanny and this article makes me so cross!!!!!!!!!!! It does not reflect what most nannies are like, it may be true that she has had some bad nannies but surely not that many!
I can honestly say I do not drive a sports car or earn 40 grand a year nowhere near infact!

And i can honestly say (within reason) I would be willing to do anything my employers asked of me. What kind of nannies was she hiring who didn't even know that children had to be spoken to ? ( I mean come on) what a stupid stupid woman!

S00000000000 CROSS

I don't understand why you would continue employing nannies for 10 years if they were such a disaster! Doesn't it say more for what a bad judge of character the writer is if she continually picked such "bad 'uns"!!!
