maids, do not bring a stranger home
i have written before, singaporeans are so honest to the point of being idiotic. how could they ever think of bringing a stranger home, ie a maid, and leave their most precious and helpless love ones at the mercy of this total stranger? do they know anything about her? is she mentally stable? does she harbour any evil thoughts? what is her values, conduct, emotions, motivations...? a maid is a good servant, a good helping hand for those who need them just for that purpose. the rich can have many maids without problems because maids are there at their command and control. not the other way round. what happens in many homes now is that the maid is put in total control of the homes in the absence of the masters. the master/mistress is totally dependent on the maid. they are both outside and leave their homes, young children/babies or handicap parents to the maids who now become the rulers behind their backs. when the maids are let loose to do what they want, without a pair of watchful eyes, all kinds of things and dangers will happen. more tragedies are waiting to happen in the homes of simple minded singaporeans who know no danger or cannot appreciate that there is a jungle out there, with wild animals.
