Help is help is help...HELP!!!!!!!

In the 5 years that I've had to manage domestic help in India, I've realised a few things:
  • They are stubborn
  • They pretend to know everything
  • They have selective hearing
  • They won't change their ways (and I mean using-actual-floor-cleaners-instead-of-RIN-on-the- floors kind of change)
  • They love the dishwash bar even though it takes nothing out of the dirty dishes
  • They talk too much even if I'm not interested in hearing them
  • They won't move a single piece of furniture to clean under it

But they want a raise ever so often. And new clothes. And money for cell phone recharge. And all the other nonsense that goes with being help in this day and age.

Help!
