well. the maid cant pay because we give her 15$ PER month. and we cant deduct it because... IN rural places of Nepal , where my servant comes from, one family consists of 9/10 sons or daughters .. so that 15$ directly goes to her HUGE family.

Think about what you are saying... If you have a job that pays that much then most likely this person works there ass off for the money they have. They probably don't feel like it after a hard days work or any person wouldn't if they have the money.

so he's spoiled because he has a maid and a ps3? assuming he is a child/teen, most if them have consoles. and as for the maid, it's more of a luxury for the parents

if she's working as a maid she probably doesn't have money to buy a new one. give her a break. maids have it bad enough already. you all sound like a bunch of rich snobs ranting on a maid like that.

all you idiots mad because you can't aford a maid... why don't you look at your lives and see where you screwed up to why you can't afford one. I came from a hard life, worked my butt off to get what I have now including a maid. why haven't you? you guys are completely pathetic. do the world a favor and off yourself instead of trying to make people on this site feel sorry for you because you made your own life pathetic

wow @ the ps3 haters, just jealous their consoles don't play blu-ray, need extra addons like a wireless adaptor and contoller batteries, and doesn't have kickass games like god of war and gran turismo (all you forza fans, I say shut up in advance)

There is a reason having a maid is frowned upon by the average community , such as myself, we are jealous that people like you have the money

@ all of you who say XBox is better: Sure, it has Halo 3... But what seems more worth it: Paying for Internet and XBox Live or losing the chance to play Halonlike an addict and get free PlayStation Network.. I dont know... $10/month or $0/month for $50 more and get a BlueRay reader with BlueRay HD games.. @OP: Fire her. Then go to his/her house and dump a cup of bleach on his/her TV or something...

Well maybe if you paid her more she would've been able to pay you back...seriously $15 a month?! My mom is a housekeeper and she gets paid $30 a hour!! I feel bad for your maid she's trying to sustain her family and I don't know how she's doing that with only $15..

If you look on his profile, it says he lives in Nepal. Idiot. Anyways, I'm shocked that its so low... $15 a month? I get $9.84 an hour to check groceries... That's about $300 dollars on a 40 hour week. What an asshole, exploiting people.

The 7.XX min. wage only applies to companies that profit more than a certain amount in a year. Since presumably OP isn't hiring their Maid with such a company, min wage is only $5.XX (in the U.S.).

wow maybe you shouldn't of explained as this now makes you look worse, plus im guessing that her $ 15 pay a month was enough reason for her to wreck your ps3.

He's from Nepal. We give our maid about 30 dollars a month (I'm from India) That's really how much people from the working class make in such countries. That's why we can all afford maids, because they are cheap. And also most of these maids go to 5-6 houses a day, so that's 150-180 a month, which again might seem low, but the standard of living in such countries is that a family of 3 can live on 50 dollars a month.

If you can afford an expensive game console, you can at least give your poor maid minimum wage! Dick. (And for all of you "he's in a different country" shits, I looked it up and minimum monthly wage in Nepal is $71 US dollars.)

ok so the the house keepers or maids and servants as you put it, do all this manual cleaning for you so they can provide for their children and you think its ok that "their cheap" because they have 5 other houses they have to clean? that's just horrible.

only 15 dollars a month?!?! we pay our maid 300 dollars a week

I would say that this is an FML for her. Obviously if she can't afford to pay you back, then you're not paying her enough. It may be a lower income in Nepal. But if she still doesn't make enough money to live comfortably and have a little extra, then you're the jerk for paying her so little. Maybe you should consider paying your "servant" a little more. Have some compassion.

Reply
  abeg157  |  14

How about you make her pay you back with like, some other kind of work? My foreign relatives, ( I live in the US ) have maids and servants that do extra besides cleaning like cooking and waking them up and stuff. Maybe you can have her do something extra once or twice a month.

Yes, but $15 a month is around 700 Nepalese Rupee. The OP probably converted the Nepalese rupee directly to USD without taking PPP into account. PPP wise, 700 Nepalese rupee is a lot. And all those complaining about the fact that even though the maid is working at other houses doesn't mean the OP should pay her less....servers in the US are paid below min wage for similar reasons (they make up in tips). Let's not be quick to judge :)

wow, some of you are being huge dicks. you need to realize that currency and rates differ greatly between countries. for all we know, the wage in which op provides their maid is the norm for them.

Reply

$15/month. In Nepal. I am guessing it is not a full time job. probably just a couple of hours a day, every couple of days. This is NOT the US. Stop jumping all over OP. Learn a little about the world.

When I say they are cheap, I obviously meant they work for a low wage. In my country, you can eat an entire meal for one at a minimum rate of 20 cents to about 140 dollars, depending on how much money you have, and where you eat. The poor survive with their low wages of 30 dollars a month, because of this system. Their children get free education by the government. They get ration cards and can buy their groceries and necessities (oil, sugar, etc) at a subsidised rate. You can travel from one end of a city to another, by train of bus for about 1 dollar alone.

Op, that's pathetic. I don't care where you're from, she should be getting paid more than that, especially if your family can afford nice things like ps3s. Like you said, she's got a huge family to support, so give her fair wages.

Reply
  ADOG2645  |  17

To everyone saying that $15 dollars a month is unfair, what if she only comes once a month, and works 1-2 hours. Or maybe twice a month, but only for an hour. OP never said how often she came.

that's not true. his parents could pay for the maid and still have made him pay for the ps3. i have a maid too, but that has nothing to do with how much money i personally have.

I hate these comments of "if you can afford a maid, you can afford a new PS3." This is stupid because the op is from Nepal. (read where people are from you racist, ignorant people who assume the maid was Mexican.) In Nepal, it is more common for people of the middle / upper class to have maids. Even if we where talking about the US, it doesn't mean you are spoiled if you make enough money to hire a maid I 'm sick of hearing every pissed off person who can't afford to own luxury item or service bitch about other people having them. You don't know the OP, and it is stupid and childish to tell them they deserve their items ruined because they have something better than you. Secondly, you don't know anything about the situation. This person could have saved up for a ps3, and CAN'T afford a new one. FYL op.

#188 - exactly. This site is amazing for "I lost XYZ", "YDI for having XYZ - some people don't even have XYZ" etc. Insert 'job', 'car', 'computer' whatever as appropriate. These are semi-amusing/schadenfreude stories, not some race to see who can have the shittiest, most pathetic lives. We all have our problems. Everyone here at least has some sort of access to a computer and the internet, which puts them a long way ahead of a lot of people in this world. Maids are normal in a lot of countries. OP is from Nepal, where it's not that odd. I've lived in places where it's pretty standard to have maids, gardeners, drivers or whatever, but now I live somewhere that it isn't, so I do my own housework & the rest. Just for one second, people should try to imagine a world that's different from what they can see on a walk from their house. Oh, and if they've been further than that, then 'YDI for having access to transport'.
