    It's not really a joke. It's one of those silly things liberals say.

    Give her presents when you feel like to or special occasions/holidays. You aren't supposed to get in a competition.

    Do you know her more personally or is she just cleaning your house, without limited discussion "Hello - How are you ? Fine Thanks. OK Goodbye" ?

    Anyway if you want to please her, you have to know her before

    Good luck with however you move forward.
    While it is lovely she thinks of your daughter, as Toddy above points out above, this is a business deal. The gifts etc. are highly unusual and I'd feel quite uncomfortable receiving them. So much so, I would politely thank her but decline her generosity. I prefer such arrangements to be kept simple and business-like so there is no room for future misunderstandings. However, maybe such relationships are different where you reside.
    Nine out of ten concerns are completely unfounded.

    It's a bit more than that, you can leave the keys to your home and expose all your belongings to that person, so obviously there is a relationship of trust that goes beyond just a regular economic exchange. Still have to keep a balance.

    Don't see how its a problem here, the internet gives you the great power of talking shit to people like me without losing your face in the process.

    Well, if I lose face, I wouldn't lose too much, as long as you don't pull my hair out, I only have one left and I would be very angry to lose it .

    I forgot the joke anyway, so for now I'll keep my face.
