Just to go along with the "Ten Things I Hate"... it's the treatment of maids... and I will give you but one small example of the "small" people here and the way they treat their maids.
My wife is a volunteer at aidha (http://www.aidha.org/aidha-around-the-w ... singapore/
), an organization that teaches maids about finance, leadership, and self actualization... really a great program.
One maid in the class was allowed by her employer to attend the aidha classes every other Sunday, but from 10 AM to 3 PM only... a very tight window. Twice, she could not complete class and be home by 3 PM. Employer's response? Has now prohibited the maid from taking any classes at all.
All I can say is "ASSHOLE!!!!". Here is a person at about the lowest end of the spectrum, doing what she can to improve her lot, and instead of support, she gets an asshole that blocks her. People like this make me want to puke.
