    Idiots! What good is washing the car in this weather? Her employer is damn cruel. I really pity the maid.

    Welcome to a first class nation. Even the way maids are mistreated is first class.

    Interesting thing is this. Sometimes, maids have to be treated like maids. That is what my family found out. When we had our first maid, we treat her as part of the family and guess what, she climbed onto our heads. Then we realised why the agencies sometimes must treat them like maids as what u see them in sedia position. However, we do not ill treat them though. Just treat them like maids loh.

    Actually i think it's a good way to wash car.... but then i won't ask another human being to do it. I might just do it myself for the fun of it. save water too.

    When I was a kid (in kampong).....I use to wash car for my uncles to earn pocket money....and I like to wash car during raining because I don't have to keep spraying water on the car and the mud would came off much easier....I just shampoo the car...let the rain rinse and finally another spray after the rain Another fun thing for washing car in the rain is the dirt on my body will came off quite easily probably the rain water wash it off immediately.

    Despite that, I still think it's too much to ask a domestic helper to wash your car in such condition unless she does it willingly just like I did...we are living in city now...not kampong so it is very unconfortable to go up and down in a drench

    Wrong. If it is stated in the contract that she has to do it, it will become her duty.

    Yes treat them as maids but also treat them as humans, meaning the action above is just not treating the maid as a human.

    That employer's a retard at best.

    I think the word domestic maid should give you a clue where she is supposed to do most of her work/chores.

    Maids have to wash cars if their employer says so as it does not cause any endangerment to their lives nor is it against labour law, unlike working at a place of business (eg a shop)
