Prepare your waterworks.
An emotional video featuring a Saudi family bidding adieu to their domestic worker and her husband has gone viral, and residents couldn't control their tears. The photos and videos of a nanny and her husband departing after 28 years were compiled in a tweet that has now garnered 8,000 plus in retweets alone (at the time of this post).
Twitter user, Joud, uploaded the content as a homage to the couple who had been a part of his family for almost two decades.
In his tweet, he wrote...
"Our nanny and her husband have worked for us for over 28 years and today they left back home for good. She was one of us, she raised me and my siblings, she knew everything about us, what we liked and didn't. I swear it's like we lost a family member, we're all in tears."

والله حاس بلشعور ذَا. سواقنا كان معانه من اول ما انا ولدت إلا الان، كان يشيلني وانا صغير أعاملُه زي أبوي وكان يعاملني زي ولده. بعد كم سنة راح يرجع الا بلده، ومو عارفين ايش نسوي بدونه. لو راح، قطعه من قلبي بيروح، الله يحفظه يارب ❤️ pic.twitter.com/SLfAvn20kd— Welly Mukhtar (@Free_Wellly) April 14, 2018
