I need a maid and driver.

I'll be interning in NYC this summer and need a maid, driver and maybe even a personal chef, but my mom and dad won't let me bring ours with me to the city. They think the maids will run off as soon as they land in America (I'm an international). Maid and a driver are very important, I need someone to drive me around as I don't want to deal with NYC traffic and don't want to come home after a hard 4 hours of work (I know my uncle will be tough on me) and have to worry about cooking and cleaning after myself. Any tips?

Read that post, very cool. My parents aren't super wealthy by any means. My dad is worth like 400mm USD and comes from poor background. Made his money in PE and real estate. My mom comes from old money, very well connected politically. In my home country though 400mm goes a long way and I think it's enough to get a maid at the very least in the US.

I'm not sure what you mean? I'll assume you or your family aren't worth as much as mine. From your poorer perspective it might seem like a lot but it's not. Think of it this way, a homeless person sees a person who makes 30k a year and wishes he were that person because then he could afford to rent his own place, but to you and me, 30k is barely above poverty. It's all about perspective. Hope that helps!

Plus, you have to understand that my family only made like 55 million last year, not nearly as much as our friends and the people we associate with. And Like any other family, we have our own problems. For example, my dad was really hoping to get a 150 foot yacht this year, with its own helipad and submarine, but the build will be delayed by about 8 months. So we have to deal with hardships and not getting what we want all the time. Hope this makes you understand my situation better.

any tips to find a maid and driver in the US? Like I told the poster above, my family isn't super wealthy but I think we should be able to afford a maid in America. If we have to get a lower tier maid and driver that's okay but would really prefer an elite service. In your opinion, how would you rank the maid services in the US. Or should I hire an illegal immigrant instead. I hear Biden opened the borders, so there should lots of choices.

The point of trolling is to not make it obvious that you're trolling. Anyone that was actually in this financial situation would have no problem finding a maid or a driver and def wouldn't need advice from a finance forum. You're so poor you don't even know how to properly role-play a rich person lmao

Wrong. I never said I was rich, dummy. My parents are only worth 400mm, that's not that much. You're a dummy, no wonder you work in real estate.

For NYC I am not certain if a driver is necessary. You should see how well the metro suits your needs. Also after work the bank provides a free car ride home so you do not have to worry about that. I don't think you can get a maid for one small apartment but I'm certain there are professional cleaning services you can look into.

Learn some life skills man. Maid and driver are fine, but it doesn't hurt to learn some of these skills on your own--especially when you first move to a new city. Think of it as a coming-of-age experience. If you must always rely on your crutches when starting somewhere or something new, you'll never develop the skills necessary to be able and independent.

I understand that this is a troll post, but it's still sad that someone chose this topic in particular to troll. These kinds of urges are not becoming of a would-be adult
