Details: This poster shows a drawing of a stereotypical 1950's couple, with the man in a suit and the woman in an apron. They are both smiling. On the right it says Oh, I'm Sorry. You must be confusing me with the maid we don't have.
A maidservant or in current usage maid is a female employed in domestic service. Maids perform typical domestic chores such as cooking, ironing, washing, cleaning the house, grocery shopping, walking the family dog, and taking care of children. Once part of an elaborate hierarchy in great houses, today the maid may be the only domestic worker that upper and even middle-income households can afford.
