    ^ good luck finding them, ones that are reliable and honest which would be my concern.

    I'd imagine your best bet would be through someone you know who has a couple in their Thai family that they could vouch for.

    I concur. While so many go on about "All" of them being thieves and scammers, while in fact there are many that would like a gig like that. Just have to find someone that can vouch for them.

    Good Luck

    Why wouldn't she tell you. Seems odd. Isn't she trying to help?

    I'd send my wife and mother in law but pretty sure you cannot afford to feed them since they got on real wines smoked salmon thrice daily.

    Good luck I imagine your mrs will want a say in who the woman is, go for an ugly old immigrant they say Lulu is a dab hand with a mop.

    I know a bloke in Patters with a bucket added bonus you can pay him bouncy pies.

    Ya know Peter. People do come on here to help when people have questions. By your own post, you stated Your wife knows people and is not telling you seems odd. I did not ask about your marriage. I could give a rats ass quite frankly. I simply asked a question that if your wife knows, then why in the heck wouldn't she be trying to help? It seems like you post questions on this forum and people respond with suggestions or help and you go off on them. I vaguely remember a Generator question some time back and you went full on asshole to a handful who tried to help.

    Good Luck.

    ^^ you get some answers and then make a weird statement and get pissy when the posters who've replied to you ask you about it, that's not trolling that's your usual MO when posters react by asking wtf you are on about.

    as Stumpy says, good luck with it.

    Armstrong gave you good advice. Here's one of several Phuket Jobs groups on Facebook: Phuket Jobs

    Also, it's unrealistic to allude to a relationship problem with your wife, i.e. her not helping you, and not expect to arouse people's curiosity.

    I can see why your wife doesn't talk to you.

    Agreed PAG. I didn't and do not want to know about his "Relationship" status. I was confused why his wife wouldn't pass on names to him. It just seems extremely odd. Sounds like she has the contacts to resolve his request and needs. But this again as Mike said above, seems to sadly be his MO. He posts questions in need of advice and people respond to help and he goes on a tilt and starts on with the poster and their suggestion.

    The simple fact is, finding handymen/housekeepers (especially potentially live in) is normally done through extended family contacts.

    Callen really is a cantankerous old git.
