Whoa. I'm with you Phil, but I can't see myself siding with the maid if it's against your wife. Seriously. If I were you, I'd just tell my wife to chill, but I won't stick with it. I dunno what your wife is like, but if that were my wife and I tried defending the maid, she'd think I was romping around naked in lily fields with the maid. That's not a good picture to paint.
In the end, your wife is going to get her way -- the most diplomatic thing you can do is just explain to the poor maid how sorry you were and that there was simply nothing you could do about it (without getting a divorce) and that YOU are not mad at her and it is all just a terrible, terrible misunderstanding.
I wish I could afford to make just a dollar a year.

What terrible situations. So many guys pussy whipped into submission and ignoring justice and fair play. I'd look for a new wife. It's a "buyers market" so to speak anyway.
I would not be surprised to see Phil divorced within 5 years, anyway ;-)
Seriously, how long have you been married, Phil?

That's me alright .. with a dash of practicality.
Just asked my (Thai) wife's opinion on the matter. She said that Thai people are nosey by nature as we all know, so it should be expected (if you hire a maid) that people will snoop. She would put anything valuable or really private under lock and key,.........and keep temptation far from harm's way. I agree....and did point out that......Thai maid/Korean maid/British maid/Irish maid/Yankee maid..............they will all probably have a little nose around when they think the coast is clear.
No offence Phil, but my missus thinks that your wife and your MIL have completely over reacted here........and I genuinely hope that you're not too whipped old boy.
I was at the checkout at TESCO a few weeks ago and my home room Thai teacher was at the adjacent checkout. Not only did she take a good long look at my shopping bags .. she actually came over and opened them up to have a really good sticky beak into the contents ... AND .. made a few comments like " Oooh ... you like carrots too!" ... " Oh .. Cup Jok" etc etc .. Incredible. But I don't really mind. Good for a laugh.
