And your ridiculous post, it's such a grey area, or hypothetical statement. So if you are sure rich and have "domestic staff" that this means you have all the so called best of class for any given service at home? Fuc& no. If you have a shoe guy in NYC and your job moves you away you don't think someone may still want to use that guy.
Crazy talk by the uppity dude.
Yes, we do have some uppity wannabes, and their character is measured by how easily they get upset over someone else's choice to pay for any service rendered.
We have many classes within the USA, not just two or three. Folks don't need to have exceptional wealth to afford domestic staff. They just need to be able to afford it. My father, before retiring as a very high US Air Force officer, made sure my mother, brother, and I were looked after while he was at war. If there was a domestic specialty that needed attending to, and the staff was not qualified to perform the needed task - then it was outsourced to a professional. This was before UPS and a global economy.
Anyone owning dozens of high quality shoes and earning more income per hour which exceeds $3, $7, $10, or even $25, plus insured trackable carrier fees - who desires to maintain their best look - may choose to have an outside source keep their shoes in excellent condition. Those who complain about it, whine, grind their teeth, spit, sputter, and use their privilege of commentary - only reveal themselves to be of a class not worth mentorship - unless they are opting for the talk-radio character.
