    If the cleaner has opened and gone through the contents of one draw in your house which she shouldn't have, she's been through them all Phil.
    You need to get rid of her before she steals something.

    I don't see anything very much wrong with this. If your wife isn't insisting that the cleaner be fired, I certainly understand her view on not wanting someone going through personal items, even when the prospect of theft isn't an issue.

    This whole thing sounds so lace curtain. Give the maid a thrashing and make her scrub the floors thrice to punish her.

    I'm with the wife on this one, and now you'll make sure you're always home when the cleaners around. (if you don't fire her)

    That's going to keep me giggling all day that is.

    Apparently the cleaner has now been told by mother-in-law that she is not to go through Phil's drawers. I'm not happy about it. I just hope it was done tactfully.

    I realise reading back through this thread - and thanks for so many great replies by the way - that I have probably missed out an important piece of info. Although the maid only comes to our house once a week, she is at my mother-in-law's house every day from Monday to Friday doing cleaning and washing etc. She's also there to keep mother-in-law company now that she is getting on a bit. A bit of companionship if you know what I mean.
    I know MIL is happy with her work so to me, that made for all the more reason to let the photo album incident slide.

    That's another thing my wife can't get her head around. I can't stand someone cleaning when I'm trying to work so when the maid arrives with a wet mop, I disappear into the garden and do an hour's pottering around. I try to schedule things so when the maid is here, I bugger off into Bangkok and no one gets in anyone's way. But my wife genuinely hates the thought of a cleaning woman alone in our house. I better not say anything about standing in front of the mirror in my soi 4 shirt and fondling her old leathery titties. Rarely will a Thai sense of humor stretch that far.

    I'm on the wife's side. Not because it was a photo album .. but because she was snooping in a closed drawer. It leads you to think that maybe it's not the first time. It makes you think "What else has she been poking her nose into?"

    it's gonna end in tears, with a fair few "I told you so's" and long nights in the doghouse if the maid isn't sorted out quick smart......

    Well now.......that little bit of information changes the whole dynamic.

    Given that information it sounds like the maid is a bit more than just the maid, but rather almost a peripheral "family" member.

    Let the women sort it out.

    Anyway, it's been a fine read.
    When being run out of town, get in front of the crowd and make it appear like a parade.

    I agree. I don't see the harm in looking at the photo album, but I can see why your wife may see it as an intrusion of privacy.

    Perhaps you can make the boundaries clear, but also if you are willing to leave a few albums out that you (or wife) don't mind her seeing. It can be a win-win for both parties.

    i don't see the connection at all. It is almost implying that, because she has the opportunity to steal something she eventually will. She had a look at some pictures... I don't think it is that strange (especially as she pretty close to the family being with the inlaw every day). The whole "but what is there were jewels in that draw" makes no sense. Are you telling me that if you saw things of value on display in someone's home you couldn't resist yourself? Or that cleaning ladies are inherently dishonest?

    Fair enough, if you wife doesn't feel comfortable about the maid looking at pics, then the maid should be asked not to. You are the employers after all. But the idea that something heinous has been done just doesn't make sense to me.
