My maids say they are willing to eat vegetarian food, but . . .

I am a vegetarian as are the rest of my family. My maids for the last ten years have all been vegetarians, too. That was mostly in India, but even after I moved to London, I had no problem. Now I have to put up with maids who promise me that they will not cook meat at home sneak on me ever so often.

They think that just because we are not home, we will not know. Sometimes my little children spill the beans and sometimes I detect the smell of meat and I get upset.

I have already let two maids go in the last 6 months and now I may have to let the third one go, unless she can keep her promise to me - not to cook meat in my house.

Why is it so hard to find a maid who is a vegetarian?
