I don't think that nationality matters when you can interview them and see for yourself if they have the skills and personality you are looking for.

I vote indonesian... don't care if they hanky panky on off time, have friends, demonstrate human traits, or even clean house. As long as they keep me in nasi lemak, sambal bawang, and tahu. lol!

Option #3:

Who gives a rat's ass? People's identities shouldn't be reduced to their nationality.

Find someone that can clean and you get on with. And if you have kids do the kids like the helper...........not the colour of her passport.

Edited due to a gross lack of respect on the part of the poster! Racial epitaphs removed due to lack of proof. Any further comments or posts from the poster like that will result in their account being locked.

Woah, you just crossed the line so far, the line is just a dot to you. I guess it's easy to understand why you agree with chixchix's line of questioning, Cheers babyplush :wave: I learned a long time ago never to argue with a crazy person :D
