Dear Editor,

It must be taken as a blatant act of snobbery and classism that individuals are now complaining about a helper being appointed as a consultant.

There is nothing at all wrong with a helper being appointed as a consultant, and it is clearly bias and grudge why some people are questioning such an appointment.

As a consultant, a helper can advise a gentleman how to dress. He/she can provide advice regarding which shirt is in tandem with which tie; which shoes are not matching which pair of pants; and/or which belt should be worn with which shoes. The holder of the office may even assist with grooming the hair of the gentleman to which he/she is a helper.

In the capacity as a consultant the helper can also advise on matters pertaining to the diet of the boss and can see to the health and long life of the boss by preparing meals that are best suitable.

As a consultant the helper can advise on the grocery list. This will save the boss money and will ensure that the boss gets the best items of groceries for his/her home.

It is good news that helpers are now coming into their own and are being appointed as consultants. All the “bad-minded” people who are questioning such appointments should begin to adjust to hearing more announcements of helpers being appointed consultants.

Those who want a big job with good pay should be prepared to be a helper.
