There are no winners

We finally got to the bottom of things last night and all the lies are out now. We thought we would be satisfied when we finally found out the truth but in the end, its lose-lose all around.

What did the truth bring us all? Disappointment for Richard and I. Shame for Aini. I think she genuinely felt very ashamed and very sorry. We were in no way harsh with her and simply said that she had to stop with all the lies. After all, we had no complaints about her work itself and none of the lies were to do with her work. It all had to do with a teenage crush and what it drives irrational teenagers to do.

Here's the irony: She risked her job to be able to hang out with this guy, while the guy (who was interviewing for a job with Richard yesterday) exposed all her lies in the hope of securing a job for himself.

I really treated her as a friend and enjoyed her company. A part of me wishes that I left the issue alone and just be more aware of potential lies in the future. But then, thats what I have always done in the past and it has always proven to just get worse when overlooked. I'm the sort of person that will forget a situation like this as soon as its 'aired', but, she couldn't be convinced to stay on.

There is no joy and definitely no satisfaction in finding out the truth here.

I'm sorry it turned out that way, but in the long run it was probably for the best. Good luck. By the way, has your letter arrived yet? By my calculations, it's been in transit for 12 days.

So nanny is sneaking off with boy trying to get job with employers husband and boy rats out nanny to help him get job. Soap opera to the max.

Oh Amanda, that really is disappointing. The upside is that you at least know - but I so get your feeling. DAAAANG.

so basically she was seeing a guy in secret and then said it was her cousin?

and there was a big deal about that... how old is she? if she's an adult she shouldn't have had to lie. i dunno...
