Ah-ha! Caught you! You just read this headline and were rightly horrified. But this subject matter makes sense to you, Park Sloper, living as you unfortunately do among the ever-expanding universe of millionaire brownstoners in BK, and their apparently endless need for nannies and maids.
Well relax, FIPster, ‘cause this headline didn’t come from our pens, but from gifted and edgy reporter Djuna Barnes, who in 1913 wrote an article for the Brooklyn Daily Eagle about the lives of our borough's nannies way back when. The piece is about the bullshit that “the girls” (as they were called by the head of their employment agency) endured in Brooklyn households at the time, which totally proves that domestic employers were demanding assholes way back then, too!
