If you could have free, unlimited service for five years from an extremely good cook, chauffeur, housekeeper, masseuse, or personal secretary, which would you choose? and why?

I would definatly pick a housekeeper. I'm a horrible back seat driver so a chauffer isn't needed. masseuse, well thats my hubbies job..lol. And a personal secretary, well I have more dust bunnies than bank accounts so managing my funds isn't to overwhelming..lol.

i would prefer a housekeeper very much as we are are really tough time to manage our work at home with the little kids. by five years time the kids will grow up and things will be ok by then.

I am not really sure which one I would chose. Reason being that I am a stay at home mom and I would very much benefit from either one. BUT seeing as the most disgustingly ickiest and yuckiest job in the whole world is cleaning toilets I would have to say a cleaner. I enjoy cooking and baking, I love to drive, and I wouldn't really benefit from a chauffer so yes house keeper it is. Maybe I could cut a deal with the house keeper to cook for me once or twice a week though just so I can have a break hehe. Good post Ourdew, have a great day =)

I would really love to have all of the first four that you mentioned. However, if I had to choose, then I would certainly wouldn't say no to a good housekeeper. I don't like cooking or housework but I wouldn't mind the cooking if I had the housekeeper to do the washing up afterwards. It would also be great to have somebody to do the ironing as this is another chore which I dislike.

I didn't think about that, having a housekeeper to clean up after I cook. I love to cook, but I hate the clean up. thanks.

no thought needed on this one. a babysitter. with 4 kids, i never get out. i cannot afford to go out with my husband and leave the kids home with a sitter. i would love to have a free sitter. even if it were only for 5 days!!!

A secretary of course. The secretary will then be responsible for finding a good cook, chauffeur, housekeeper and masseuse; and delegate the work according to my instructions.

MASSUESE without a second thought! I had a really good job a few years back and made GOOD GOOD money so I went for massages every Friday evening. We also had a chair masseuse that came in on Mondays and we got 15 minute chair massages. I miss them terribly and they are so very relaxing! Makes life a lot easier to deal with.

I like to drive, so that's out. I don't need a personal secretary, but a cook or housekeeper or masseuse would all be good. Hummmm. I think at this point a housekeeper. If we could get the house really clean than some of our other problems could be taken care of. But I've got other things to do besides clean or cook for that matter, things I like to do. And I clean & cook as part of my job so I'm going to be so excited to do it when I come home.... But the roomie cooks & as much as I'd love daily massages, a housekeeper would be more useful.

I think that it is such a hard choice, because we just about need all of them. Right!

I would choose a housekeeper , and cook . Only because I am unable to drive myself to get groceries or to appointments , anywhere for that matter . A cook cause I am starting to have a hard time around the kitchen I burn myself more often than I should and a housekeeper cause I can barely clean my house anymore , I do try to do all this myself without any help , but there will be a day when I will need help with most every day tasks . What would you choose ????

I hope you can get someone to help you in the future. I think I would pick the masseuse, because I have a real bad back and maybe then I could do the rest without pain.

I would definately pick masseuse. I have terrible trouble being able to relax and if I was so tense all the time Housework and all other chores would not be nearly so strenious.

Unquestionably, I'd want the housekeeper. I HATE housework. I don't mind cooking so much, I like to drive myself, my hubby handles all massage duties quite well, and I don't need a secretary, so I would certainly take the housekeeping!

good question... i will choose housekeeper, coz its the hardest thing for me to do... i don't like household chores like cleaning the house and stuff... i could live without a cook coz i could still eat out or cookby myself... i don't actually need a chauffeur, i can go to spas for a good massage and i could be my own secretary... ;)

I would pick a housekeeper hands down, I love cooking so I don't mind that, I don't trust everyone's driving so I don't want a chauffer. Don't need a masseuse that is what a man is for and I don't need a personal secretary. But I would love a housekeeper because I hate cleaning.

I would chose a housekeeper. I would not have to worry about messes being made. I have a housekeeper that would take care of them. With a housekeeper my home would be kept clean and orderly.
