question of _ : How do I get my husband to say “no”, baby-sitting for his mother ?
My husband is a new body that it must over time and 6 days a week. My mother asked my husband and I babysit for two weeks for the unbelievably low rate of pay of … $ 40! I want my husband to a much needed free time to spend with our daughter and me. But, I have a bad feeling that he will not be able to tell his mother “NO!” once his new job begins. You can find someone else to clock her 8 and 9 years old (as her 16-year-old daughter) that I would be very on the $ 40. I do not appreciate that it paid low, because their children are threatened, and they destroy my house. I spend an entire weekend hunting for them, cleaning their messes and discipline, because no one else does. My husband accepts to pay the $ 40 after it (pay a bad idea to always discuss first) already babysitter. So now everything is going stir for them. Anyway, he will work on Saturdays or Sundays and he can not walk, to pick them up, and not a drop on my Haus.Da they do not fall off, it will probably take my husband on a Friday evening, so I stay put Baby-sitting them on a Saturday and Sunday (while working) and I will not do. I hate my mother with a passion, and I might just have me tell her no. She calls again and asks my husband if he was doing the babysitting (although we all know that I am the one who’m not cooking and cleaning and baby-sitting while they are over), so there should not up to me, him. So how can I have my opinion about the Queen B? I do not call them, and I refuse to talk to her about it because I call them from their name. What should I do? Because they never asked us to baby-sit, she just calls us and says: “. Come pick up in the morning as soon as you can,” I’m like “What?” As my husband says ok. Grrrr.Oh believe me, I must be paid. You pissed on my couch last weekend, and I had to buy $ 10 cleaning products, I had a box of baking soda, 4 liters of water, a sponge and use a lot of time to clean up the mess. Not to mention, they live 35 minutes away, so drive more than an hour in both directions. So I paid for it, is an easy refund my money! I need more but .. it is not even compensation for my time: (I thought I would try to account for this weekend: $ 1.50 Milk $ getrunken1 tissues verwendet1 $ bandages $ 10 urine-cleaner $ 10 an hour in cleaning services ($ 40) $ 2 Water for drinking and cleaning agents used $ 15 Gas $ 5 power from exit on the lights and brass with my heating verschwendetFür a total of $ 75.50. It looks like I’m babysitting to pay them. I’m out $ 35.50 ! not to mention I was not even paid for my time watching So this is an additional $ 5 per hour (30 hours) $ 150 Wow, I’m ripped Oh, I forgot: $ 2 for soap (use my ! whole bottle each time) $ 100 for mental suffering of $ 800 for a new couch (because it was new, before they sour on him) Best Answer:
