Quote #10

Mrs. Martin: "What I think is that a maid, after all--even though it's none of my business
--is never anything but a maid" (443)

Here, Mrs. Martin expresses a pretty classist attitude. She seems to be saying that anyone who is a maid isn't capable of being anything else. Mrs. Martin thinks that Mary is low class and will stay that way forever.
