Kai and the helper

Kai keeps kakak (Malay for elder sis) on her toes. She squats down and follows Kai everywhere when he sweeps things off the table and scramble about. I really hand it to her.
When Kai grows up, I will never allow him to be disrespectful or rude to our helpers. I don't like calling them maids. Make them sound like lowly servants. "Helper" is a more apt term - in my opinion anyway - since they ease us from so many mundane chores.

It's a dirty job but someone's gotta do it! :P
There is Nurses Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Teacher's Day... there ought to be a Helper's Day to salute them for their help.

Sometimes I see young children scolding their helpers, ordering them to do this and that, and I feel pure rude shock rising within me. How can any parent allow their child to treat another human being with such little respect? Singa the Courtesy Lion has been around for 30 decades now and still not much's changed. So much for trying to instill graciousness in our society huh?
