I used to work for a family similar to that here in Orlando. We took care of the parents. ( one who was 90 and the other 86 ) They lived in a gated community on a golf course and the one daughter would come in never empty handed with a drink disguised in her soda cup. The family would come and go, but they were so uppity and treated us like maids. One family member would come over and when you would ask him a question or say goodbye, he would just look at you then keep walking. Now, I know plenty of people with money and they don't behave that way.
The client was even rude, never calling us by our names, but things like...YuuuuHoooo girl..girl in the kitchen, where are you. Hellooooo girl in the back, I need something. Then when people would come over, she would tell them we were there to wait on everyone. $10 an hour to take care of two people with feeding, meds, laundry, bathing the dog every other day because she would feed the Maltese ham, cheese, sloppy joe, waffles, chocolate etc and it pooped everywhere to include their bed.
What I never could understand was how they all acted so uppity, but neither parent had taken a bath in the MONTHS I worked there and the other caregivers told me they had never seen them bathe either. I used to find extra pills in the med trays sometimes. ( I'm guessing it was when the daughter had a little too much to drink ). I finally had to walk away before a disaster happened.
Mom was a diabetic and they allowed her to spray tons of whipped cream on fruit. There were at all times at least 5 cans in the fridge. When I asked why this was, the daughter replied " Well, she's 86, let her eat what she wants".
Oh and when I applied, they came right out and asked me what I looked like. " are you pretty, what color hair do you have, etc" I was like...uh are you asking me if I am black or white, she said oh nooo, Mother is jealous over Dad so we are looking for someone who isn't realy pretty. Now, I'm a pretty smart person, and knowing what I do now about them being racists, I tend to believe they were more wondering my skin color, then my beauty. Might have been a little of both. Never have I been asked what I looked like.
Oh girls..I got more...stay tuned!
