    Hourly wage for "domestic diva"

    My maid, who was supposed to work one day a week, for five hours, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., never, ever showed up on time. She'd come any time between 9:45 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. but always left before 2:00 p.m. Her reason was the bus. Her pay was never docked. If I left the house, she would leave soon after. About once a month she would not show up at all, without calling or letting me know in advance. She did not get paid for those days. I got tired of her behavior and started making her sign for payments, noting date, arrival time and departure time. I made a note of days that she did not show up. She finally just stopped showing up at all.

    Hourly wage for "domestic diva"

    This thread is about wages for maids which has morphed into tipping at restaurants. Why not leave the percentage of tipping up to individual discretion instead of arguing what is the correct amount in Mexico? No tipping in Canada does't mean no tipping required in Mexico. 20% tipping in the U.S. doesn't mean you have to do the same here. Do what you think is right.

    Amazon Mexico Questions

    I just ordered a set of dishes from Amazon Mexico on a Wednesday night, using a US credit card. The cc company sent me an e-mail asking if this was my transaction. I clicked "yes." AmazonMx sent me an e-mail that the order was received and I would get my package the following Tuesday. I received an e-mail the following day (Thursday) informing me that I would received my package on Friday. When the package was shipped they informed me and I could track it's movement. It was delivered on Friday evening.

    Panettone at SL

    The Costco panettone is the traditional one. Just don't be tempted to eat it all in one sitting.

    Ocelo sponges

    The orange and blue, plain colored sponges, are for wiping surfaces, e.g. kitchen counter tops. The other two, with the fancy designs, are for scrubbing dishes, and pots and pans. The textures are different. Superlake was out of the orange and blue type sponges, but have since restocked.

    Fido in Restaurants

    I am appalled when I see a dog's bottom resting on a chair seat or cushion which is meant for a person. The dog's owner may think its bottom is clean; I beg to differ. I don't want a naked human bottom on the seat, either. Both instances are unhygienic. I vote with my pocket book and my feet. There is no point complaining - nothing has changed in the 16 years I've lived here and it looks like nothing is likely to change. Owners who bring their dogs to restaurants think not only is their dog their best friend, it's their only friend. It's a sad situation for these owners and I feel sorry for them, but that doesn't mean I have to put up with their bad behavior.

    Fido in Restaurants

    There are two restaurants that I go to very frequently, Ajijic Tango and Fonda Dona Lola, that do not allow pets. Both restaurants do very well. Ajijic Tango does not accept reservations at the weekend as they are too busy. Restaurants can do very well while following Mexican law.

    Thanks to everyone who responded with information. I went to Francisco who is a couple of doors East of Junior's. Excellent service and very responsive to my need for an oxygen sensor for my Volkswagen Tiguan.

    Question probably for Spenser

    My husband and I had a Mexican will drawn up and owned the property jointly (NOT tenants in common.) I (the survivor) got total ownership upon his death. I still had to transfer the ownership of his share (50%) to my name and pay for it.
