I can barely believe what I heard today.
I've made an A3 plan detailing the summer break, what shift my L&M is on, what days I have to be where to help with the DGC, who's cats need feeding on what day and who's roses need watering when.
One of my colleagues saw this and asked how much I charged to feed someone's cats. I explained that I didn't charge family, but otherwise I charged £5 a day.
She then offered me £10 a day to feed her cat for a long weekend.
She had asked a neighbours 12 year old daughter if she would do it but the child wasn't prepared to do it for £10, it was too much like hard work to walk about 20 feet and feed and cuddle a cat.
Ye gods and little fishes, the child must get everything she wants to feel able to turn down an offer like that.
