I'm starting to get rather ticked off at the woman I petsit for. She is supposed to pay me on fridays. I get 5 dollars a day to walk him twice a day. That is a bargain for her! The thing is, she is supposed to leave me my money on fridays and half the time she doesn't. This means that she has to bring it to me during the weekend. She leaves me messages like "I stopped by your house to pay you and you weren't home. " Well, try calling me to see if I'm going to be home when you come by! Today she left me a note saying she stopped by twice and I wasn't home and she underlined "stopped by twice". One time she expectesd me to walk the dog in an ice storm while she was out having lunch and shopping! Grrr! And last winter she was off from school and she had her grandkids. It was snowing like crazy and the wind was blowing and she called me, wanting me to walk the dog for her! I walked down there and when she came to the door she says "Oh, honey, I was going to call you and tell you not to come. I didn't realize it was so bad out there. " Grrr!! My Mom wants me to quit walking the dog for her.

you should. Once she realizes she doesn't have anyone to walk the dog she'll learn. She is taking advantage of you because she pays you so little.

either that or write some contract up and have her and you sign it with a witness so she can't have the upper hand, even if it is ONLY for $5 each walk. that is much fairer to you and tells her she'd better quit taking advantage of your kindness.

My boyfriend doesn't help keep this room clean at all, in fact he's the mess maker and it's getting frustrating. If I say anything he gets upset or depressed. Ugh. Men.
After working all day I get to clean the room, fish tanks, and do laundry. I'm already exhausted too.

Durban the Crowntail
20 Long Community Tank
9 Glowlight Tetra
