Work Colleague Taking Advantage
As many of you know I am, in retirement, working as a passenger assistant. This means a driver picks me up we collect child(ren) take them and pick them up from a centre then either go home until next job or straight to another.
Most jobs are 90 minutes but can be 1 to 3 hours which often means an hour or so indoors until pick up. My driver lives at least half an hour away so cannot get home between jobs and being an hospitable person I began inviting her in for a cuppa.
I am now working with her most of the time and she is inviting herself in whenever we are not in transit. She uses my loo (naturally) but has now begun helping herself to a glass out of my cupboard, cutlery out of my draw to peel and eat food, turning tv/lights on and off etc without a by your leave! If we have several jobs a day this is now common practise.
I realise I have made my own bed........but how could I tell her to naff off and wait somewhere in the street in the vehicle while I take my ease at home.
It has become unbearable being with her all day and I resent her acting as if my home was hers. Even with my best friend of 35 years we wouldn't dream of opening each others fridge, cupboard etc without asking or being invited. I am at my wits end and we are irritating the life out of each other, what can I do????
