I had to fire one of my PAS

So yesterday I had to fire one of my PA’S! Her name is nuala.
She had been my PA for 2 years! But I didnt get along with her!
And things were getting worse and worse over the last few weeks.
When she was doing her shifts She was leaving before it was her time to leave, she’d say to me, is there anything else? Meaning, is there anything else to do, and if I said no, she’d say, ok, well, I’ll head away home so!
Also, she was very well how do I put it, outspoken? We’d say here in ireland, she was very opinionated, and was very forward!Meaning, if she thought I should have an item in my house that I didnt have, she be like, you need to go get whatever item it was! One time she bought me a cooking pot without asking and then she expected me to give her 20 euro which is how much the pot cost!
anyway, I grew tired of her constantly leaving early, and I prefer my other PaA frances, Frances never ever leaves before she is supposed to, she’s not opinionated, and she is great at her job and we get along great!
So I rang my coordinator at the agency yesterday, and I asked her if I could change my hours around, and if frances could do all of my hours with me!
I told her the problems I was having, and she agreed that I could have frances workwith me full time!
Then she said she’d ring the other lady to tell her the situation!
what did Nuala do when she found out? She rang me! I kinda knew she would. I didnt answer the call. Instead, I blocked her number so she cant contact me again!
I dont need that stress!
She had no right calling me! Not when the coordinator had told her we werent going to be working together any more! The coordinator had told me that she was just going to tell her I was canceling the evening service, that I wanted to change my hours around, and that I wouldnt be needing her services any longer!
I dont know why she was calling me! She shouldnt have done that!
So anyway, now that I have frances full time, I am happier! We have to give Nuala 2 weeks notice, which is fine with me. She hasnt been working with me anyway due to the coronavirus, so after the 2 weeks are up I can start working full time with frances.
I am so relieved!

  1. Even just the personality clash is enough of a reason not to want to work with her. She’s in your home. That’s a very intimate position for her to be in. So, if you don’t click with her, I think you’re within your rights to ask for someone else. But not only that, she went and bought something for your house without asking :/
    I think you should keep a log of when she contacts you and just forward all of that information to the agency.

    1. Yes that’s what I’m doing. I just hope she doesn’t turn up at my door if she does I’ll be very angry. I mean what gives her that right? She has such a forward personality that wouldn’t surprise me if she did when she realises I’m not going to make contact with her. We’ll see but I hope she doesn’t.
