For reference, the scullery is a small, hot, sweaty room behind the kitchen, where heavy, dirty, menial work, such as cleaning pots and pans, is carried out. As the lowest-ranking servant in the household, the pay of a scullery maid was below abysmal and she would often be pressed into service doing any unpleasant tasks around the house (like emptying chamber pots) and serving upon the rest of the servants. In RealLife, most non-enslaved scullery maids only stayed in the position for a year or two, just long enough to get the character reference required to move on to a better job, and would typically have little to no contact with the family members.-- all in all, rather similar to the modern BurgerFool.

* Egwene in ''Literature/WheelOfTime'' is held prisoner in this position to keep her out of the way and break her back into being a novice. It gave her even more power than when she was forced to redo classes.

* In ''Literature/TheSecretGarden'', Mary's first relationship in her new home is with the young scullery maid who comes to clean the fireplace in her room. Mary can't do anything for herself (having always been waited on hand and foot) and the girl takes pity on her and helps her learn to be self sufficient.

As the lowest-ranking servant in the household, the pay of a scullery maid was below abysmal and she would often be pressed into service doing any unpleasant tasks around the house (like emptying chamber pots) and serving upon the rest of the servants. Most real life (not enslaved) scullery maids only stayed in the position for a year or two, just long enough to get the character reference required to move on to a better job.

The SpearCounterpart is also found, particularly in works more carefully based on the HighMiddleAges or earlier. Medieval households generally employed men (scullions) to work in the scullery, as women were considered too weak to do the heavy work. It was only during the Victorian Era that the job were mostly given to maids, as female servants were more plentiful and cheaper to hire. Compare FarmBoy. In modern times, the BurgerFool is a similarly menial and degrading job, but it's usually not as important to the plot.
