Geram At The Maid

Whenever my grandma’s Cambodian maid live in our house for few days, I will surely be jolted up from my beauty sleep few times per night. Very geram ohh!

You see grandma and the maid share a room with me and my sis. It’s sort of like sardine. Hehehe But that’s not the point. The point is the maid sleep beside our wood wardrobe. And grandma sleep between me and the maid. Every night I will be awaken by the ‘knock knock knock’ noise. This goes on and on few times a night. At first I was okay about it. But not anymore. If she stay with us for 5 straight nights, just calculate how many times we have to wake up!?!

The knocking noise is her elbows and knees knocking at our wardrobe. Sometimes it can be SUPER LOUD. I fear for my wardrobe. I fear my wardrobe door will fall off one day and crash onto her (hahaha my vivid imagination!). Before you say anything, hey it’s not that we give her a small space. It’s a big space yo.

I asked grandma whether the maid will twist and turn at night at her home. Grandma said ‘Even worst!!!’. Grandma added that sometime she will find the maid in 90 degree position from where she initially sleeps. Hahaha (I’m lost for words)

Finally 2 nights ago, I found a solution. I reposition her sleeping place. I placed her beside a wall (90 degree from the wardrobe). She’s now sleeping between the wall and grandma.

For 2 nights now, I’m sleeping like a pig! Kekeke

    hahahahahha… yeah just slightly do a change and you can solve the problem… sometime we just focus on a point but never zoomed out and watch it from a greater perspective
