Not everybody had a maid, of course, but if you were in a well-paid job and had ahouse of the size which Mma Ramotswe did, then not to employ a maid--or indeed not to support several domestic servants--would have been seen as selfishness. Mma Ramotswe knew that there were countries where people had no servants, even when they were well enough off to do so. She found this inexplicable. If people who were in a position to have servants chose not to do so, then what were the servants to do?
