Confession #51 – I Am Being Blackmailed By My Maid
CONFESSORS…My apologies to all of you who have been patiently waiting for me to
post a new confession. It’s nice to know I was missed though. J Today we have our
first confession from the Bahamas. A lady calling herself Lady Boss wants to
get something off her chest and she wrote this….
giving me the opportunity to make this confession. I feel like such a fool and
I want to get this out in the open so I can try to move on with my life. I am
married to a very successful man. We have been together for 12 years, we don’t
have children as neither of us wanted them and we live a good life.
About 3 years
ago my husband became president of the company he works for, it’s an extremely
lucrative and prestigious position and I am very proud of his achievement. Unfortunately
with such a demanding position he has been spending more and more time away
from home. Before my husband was promoted we used to spend quality time
together, we dined together every evening, and we socialized with friends at
the weekend and took regular vacations together.
has gotten to the point now where we hardly see each other. I can’t even
remember the last time we sat down and had a meal together. Just over a year
ago my gardener of 15 years retired but he asked me to consider hiring his
nephew who was taking over his business. I told him I would be happy to hire
his nephew and it soon became obvious that he had equally as much skills as his
my husband and I had a huge argument because once again he was going to work at
the weekend. I sat in my garden and cried as I was beginning to come to the
conclusion that my marriage was over. I did not see the point in remaining
married to a man I never see. I was so upset I did not ever notice that my
gardener had arrived until I saw the tissue he was offering me. He asked me if everything
was OK and for some unknown reason I blurted out everything that was going on
in my marriage. He was very sympathetic and understanding and we ended up
talking for most of the afternoon.
coming months we talked a lot and he showed himself to be an intelligent,
caring and considerate man. One day I was home alone as usual and a pipe burst
in my bathroom and water was spurting everywhere. I had no idea where to turn
off the water so I rushed out to the gardener to ask for help. I was relieved
to find that amongst other things my gardener was also a plumber and he had the
burst pipe under control within minutes, he then went out to the hardware store
to buy the items he needed to fix the problem properly.
When he was
finished I asked him to join me for dinner as a way of saying thank you for his
help and as I am sure you can imagine, dinner lead to drinks and the drinks led
us to the bedroom. He was an amazing lover and it was wonderful just to be with
someone who obviously wanted me. Soon we started seeing each other regularly
and I found myself constantly thinking about him and just counting down the
hours to when I would see him next.
I was lying by my pool and my maid came out to bring me a drink, I thanked her
for it and she said the most incredible thing to me. She said “you don’t deserve
it”. I said excuse me and she told me that she knew I was sleeping with the
gardener and that I don’t deserve the wonderful husband I have. I sat there
with my mouth open I could not believe what I was hearing. My maid had been
working for me for 8 years and we considered her a part of our family. But she
definitely crossed the line that day.
I told her
she needed to watch how she spoke to me and she told me I needed to watch how I
spoke to her or else she would tell my husband I was cheating. Once again I was
speechless; I really did not know what to say. Ever since then my maid has been
coming to me every few weeks demanding money. I am at the point now where I want
to tell her to go F>(k herself, I have stopped sleeping with my gardener and
he has now moved away, so I want to ask you Carol if you think I should tell my
husband about the affair and about her blackmailing me or should I just keep my
mouth shut and keep paying her? Please help!!

have gotten yourself into a mess haven’t you? Part of me wants to say it serves
you right but that would not be very constructive. But still…..its serves you
right. The gardener for goodness sake!! That’s so cliche, the bored rich
housewife getting serviced by the hired help…SMH.
That said I really
really really do not like the idea of the maid bulling you into giving her
money. Her trifling ass needs to be sent packing. I think you should call her
bluff! Tell your husband you had an affair. Explain yourself the way you have
in this email. Make sure you emphasise it was a mistake because you were feeling
so lonely. And as your gardener has gone now your husband is probably more
likely to forgive you.
I really do
not like extortionists and exploiters; you need to deal with her now or else
you will be paying her off forever. Yes you did wrong, but I do not believe you
should have to pay for your mistake in this way. Your maid is bright-and-out-of-order
and you need to kick her to the curb.
your turn!!! What should Lady Boss do?
the maid to keep her big fat mouth shut?
