If you’re a busy parent with a full-time job, this is definitely what you’ll be “cooking” yourself and it’s no secret – your helper has probably seen all the instant noodles wrappers cluttering about in the thrash.

#2 Where you hide the booze

When you have a long day, you’ll need all the booze you can get (from your secret stash) and only she would know where it is. And it better stay that way!

#3 How messy your underwear drawer is

Your room may be all neat and tidy but only your helper knows how messy the whole inside of your drawers are.

#4 How many times you curse in a day (when everyone is out, of course)

Cursing is inevitable – especially when your kid has made a mess in your room and he’s not there for you to reprimand, so you just have to resort to blurting out random curses that can only be caught on by the one who’s always home.

#5 What the everyday state of your house REALLY looks like

Thank God for domestic helpers – they’re the real superheroes clearing up the mess when you’re not there to do so!

#6 You never have cash

Whenever you need to hand her some cash for a grocery purchase and realise your wallet is empty. She’s there to hear you you go: “Great, where did all my money go?”

#7 Your WiFi password (something the kids will likely bribe her for themselves)

Enough said.

#8 What you really think of your mother-in-law
