Default Maid advice

Ladies,

I need your help. We have a new Philipino maid, and it's become clear that she has trouble following my orders. The other day I had to remind her that the sheets on the beds needed to be changed at least once a week, and I got out the sheets for her. Later I discovered that she'd changed the coverlets but put the sheets back in the cupboard. Did she honestly think we wouldn't notice?

Should we get rid of her?

Ys, fire her and get an au pair instead...or, even better, hire one that is a friend of the family....

Is she making a decent job of squeezing your oranges?
I do remember that was way up there on the serf's list
of duties in your opinion.........
Difficult choice.

I think this is the new one, after the orange-squeezing failure of a first maid....

The point is that instructions, within reason, are to be followed. Otherwise what is the point of having a maid?

You think Sri Lankians make better maids than Philipinos? That's what someone at the coffee hour told me.

What about Ethiopian maids? They're cheaper. But do you sacrifice in quality?
