Default Pinoy life

We watched this the other day. Quite interesting, funny and upsetting in places - brought tears to our maid.

Millie,

What is it like to have a maid? Get along well? No problems?

My cleaners only come in when I'm at work so the apartment might as well be cleaned by invisible elves as far as I know. I rely on the cat to make sure they don't steal anything. But I rather like it that way, and I do wonder what it's like having a full time maid living in.

No real problems. The blow jobs aren't as exciting as they used to be but otherwise it's ok.

She has been away for the last 6 weeks and from what I could see the only difference was I had to put my pants on before going downstairs, make my own cup of tea when I got in from work and do the washing up.

In fairness I don't see that much of her, after dinner she drifts back to her room, watches TV, reads and uses messenger to her mates.

What's the big advantage in having her versus a cleaning company coming in once or twice a week?

One hears about all the hassles of finding good maids, the visa sponsorship costs and the dangers of her absconding or getting pregnant.

We debate this all the time at home. For me there is only one reason but it is absolute.

We have the total freedom to walk out of the house as a couple when mini is in bed on any day of the week to go and do something together. This could be a walk to the petrol station to get milk or an evening on the beers.

For us, there is no other reason to have a live in maid. But it's a big one.

We watched this, too. As you said, interesting, funny and upsetting all at the same time. Programmes like this make me angry when people whine about living in 'poverty' in the UK - they don't know the meaning of the word
