    Maid Employment - No Cellphone

    Very strange. My erstwhile flipper GF from Phuket, back in Phils for a while now, has been recruited by a maid service and has a placement in Penang with an Indian couple. One of the conditions of her employment is that she may not possess a mobile phone?

    Sounds a bit dodgy to me.

    Has anybody heard of this restriction before for maid employment?

    Well, if I needed a dedicated maid that needed to work continuously throughout the day, without interference, maybe ditching the phone at home is not a bad idea...

    But she should not be denied accesss 24/7...

    Many workplaces are like this...

    Having trouble getting in touch with her?...Heh...

    Or bending her over the bed. Not too uncommon.

    Perhaps, that's what she had in mind - and the tall tale.

    Left to their own devices a flipper maid will invariably shirk their duties and play about on their phone all day. However, when she is off duty they should not have any reason to not let her have a phone. Indian employers apparently are the worst type to work for - she's going to work very hard....make no mistake about it.

    A friend of mine is giving the flipper maid the flick for that very reason.

    These flippa maids get it pretty rough. I did a job in Manila setting up an office and training a bunch of Flippas. We set up in a big house with the office down stairs and had a live in maid.

    She had her papers ready to go to the ME as a maid but took the job with us at the last minute through staff. It was weird having a maid and she was shocked how well we treated her. Then this Indian guy came to stay, a (not very) hi-so dude with his own maid at home. First thing when he walked in was make a finger gesture for the maid to come over, and ordered a tea. Later one of the flippa staff chicks asked me to ask the Indian guy to be nicer to the maid like us, and when I did, he was like "wtf man, she's a maid".

    Over the course of the month I was there I heard plenty of maid horror stories over evening beers with the miad and staff. All I can say is Looper mate, you call this chick your gf, yet you don't mind seeing her sold into a life of servitude cleaning the shit of Indians?

    I'd say Looper requires hid gfs to be somewhat self-sufficient, as he appears to have a storm in every port.

    You're not wrong there, after they've had their own houses cleaned, they will rent the maid out for 600 baht for 5 hours to clean other peoples houses and that money goes straight to the Injuns, slavery really

    A few years ago I read about a survey which had been done about phone usage, and it turned out Flipper girls spent more time on the phone than any other nationality.

    Then there's the Thai maid; sometimes known as 'wife'
    I encountered a man from Arizona, late 60s, I'll call him Bill, for that is his name - for the 4-5mths a year he is in Thailand his wife is not permitted to have her cellphone.
    She can use his, by arrangement, to call her family. They cannot ring her.
    Modest little house he built, may be a cheaper arrangement for him long-term than renting house and hiring a maid and a hooker.

    Now don't get me wrong, I'm all for treating people like human beings, but he has 2 maids which is less workload than 1 for a start. Is their job not to be his maids?

    Of course he can keep them busy all day, that's what he pays them for.

    You can't expect them to use their own initiative.
    Lang may yer lum reek...

    Doesn't sound too good.

    I got the address of her agency in Georgetown.

    Actually had a trip to Penang planned before she mentioned this.

    Will try and look in on her even if she is manacled to the kitchen sink.

    That's only if they allow visitors to their enslaved.

    Thats right doesnt willy employ slaves to look after his kids? Do they have to eat in the kitchen?

    Nothing wrong with shagging the maid but this one was in her 50's.

    100 points for splashing both the mouth and the phone.
