- Advice for your Everyday Life
Section: relationships, money, work 

Dear Ann Landers,
I am a self-employed maid who would like to get a message across to the people I work for. Christmas is just around the corner. Please don't give me a sweater or a gift certificate. What I really need is CASH. For workers like me, money is the best present. Thanks, Ann. -- Tapped Out in San Diego
