    Yup, not withstanding the ribbon, not a half bad idea Jimbo.

    Everyone's suddenly full of good ideas.

    This thread must have struck a nerve
    When being run out of town, get in front of the crowd and make it appear like a parade.

    Install cameras (real or fake) in every room, let her know that she is being watched. I don't think she was trying to steal anything.......just being nosey I'd imagine.

    I say you pat her down a good one as she leaves. If she's got no goods on her lick one of those little gold stars and paste it between her eyes. Sincerely, PB

    Astute analysis here, Iphoneuser.

    To add, Thais are also very fearful of thieves. Anyone with enough dough has a gate in front of their home.

    It's about boundaries, trust, and security. I would politely tell her to not look through draws and keep her focus on cleaning. If my wife wanted to can her, I'd concur.

    Our cleaning lady was like that. She would walk right into my room and start tidying up, arranging my dresser drawers and books and such. I never thought it was anything nefarious, and she was kind of like a part of the family.
    Is le He.

    Hit the nail on the head.
