Where do you live? Kuwait, UAE, Qatar, Saudi or what? If she "lives-in" then why does she need a taxi? How much do you pay her? All very confusing.

The maid is testing you. Dump her and hire another

2500 SAR for a maid. lmfao, she must have seen you coming and now she wants taxi fares as well

You must be American, dim as **** or probably both

Pay her taxis and her business class flights back to the Philippines (did I get her nationality right) and hell why you are at it, let her use the pool if she isnt already

And yes she probably is drilling your husband

I reckon the OP's being a bad lad and shagging the staff....

If you're screwing her ask her to present her IQAMA first. At least that some guarantee she hasn't got something nasty like AIDS. A mate of mine had a maid who died of AIDS. Luckily he wasn't shagging her and didn't have to pay for taxis.....

I'm shocked that anyone would need to come to a forum to ask this question.

Do what you think is right - and that can be anything from paying her taxis to emptying her room and putting all the stuff (inc. the flat screen TV) on the drive for her collection.

Obviously the decision you need to make is somewhat a function of what dirt she has on you - pay her taxis if you have been rooting her, kick her out if you are clean. A compromise can probably be found if all the dirt she has on you is about the hookers you've had around during the summer... in that case I would offer every other taxi or something.

How much do your colleagues / friends pay their maids?
How many days off do other maids get in your area?
Does your boss / your husband's boss pay for your taxi trips if you go visit friends at the weekend?
Do you pay for your own toiletries, or does your boss / your husband's boss deliver them to you?

Having staff for the first time can be scary, whatever the grumpy old men say. It is a bit of a mindset change. But they are your employee, and it is like running a company - at what stage do you think they are taking the piss compared to you facilitating having a happy maid?

When I was in KSA it was illegal for a single man to employ a maid so I guess you have your family with you. I used to pay SAR2,500 per month to a pretty Ethiopean girl for a complete service. If all she does is clean the house, wash the car and occasionally look after the kids, she is vastly overpaid in my view. Tell her to whistle for the taxi fare or drop her off yourself.
