[ - ] I am a nanny for a very dysfunctional family. I got my usual X-mas bonus of 2 weeks this year. Last night the dad told me he and DW had argued and disagreed about how much to give me. He wanted to give more so last night he gave me an extra 1k. He told me not to tell the mom. I usually don't let their shit bother me but it gets weirder and weirder everyday. Any helpful advice? 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
