'Call for services'??

So I know firefighters and burglars aren't in the game, but I also heard a rumour we could no longer 'call for services'. As far as I'm aware the maid is still in the game, so if anyone could clarify that would be really helpful. :) Also, has anyone mentioned the repairmen and whether or not he'll be returning?

    I read that there will be no repairmen, you either repair the item yourself or replace it. I am not sure about maids, I want to say they're in though.

    The maid was absolutely already confirmed. You can have it as a recurring service or a one time thing.

    Well, I'm a lazy player and although I love chaos I also like calling the repair man when I have finally had enough of those puddles on the floor. Guess my Sims' houses are going to be broken and a mess. Or I'm going to spend time just buying new objects.

    I'll probably end up replacing a bunch of stuff. Hopefully we'll have the option to make objects unbreakable again, that's a handy one.

    At this point, I'm not sure if anybody actually knows. We will find out once the game launches though.

    I have read that there are maids and that you can call them for a one time deal or a scheduled time. I don't know about the repair man.

    Maids were my favorite so I'm glad they're back. Though I wish our sims would finally be able to play as maids. Pretending to clean your house while I'm taking your husband away from you.

    Imagine a klepto Sim as a maid "cleaning up" while the owners are away. That's pretty much how I made my money in Skyrim - except the maid part.

    If there are no firefighters, how will we put out fires that start? Or do we just burn to death in the game? Lets face it, sims go crazy when fires start and they are hard to get focused in putting them out. AND even if you do put them out yourself, someone always gets burned up and die because of it. And I am wondering what other crazy zany thing they will put in the game that happens when sims are asleep if the burglars aren't there? I think that it would be funny to have a pickpocket come into the sims house at night to go through their clothes to try to find stuff. OR maybe in broad daylight when you are out and about.

    Obviously EA needs to spend their time focusing on making the Maid career playable. I want my sims to not just be a mistress but a maid one who invades the wifes house whenever she wants!

    That's a shame. I'm not too pleased by that as it varies for me with different sims.
