I don't know what we're going to do. The cleaning people we had for a couple years have cleaned my older human's bank account out so that he only has his Social Security again. They charged 140 a week when that amount was only supposed to be for occasional extra work (maybe once a month). Even the 95 dollars a week they charged at the beginning was almost too much. But my younger human was under pressure from a manager who was subjecting her to excessive inspections to try and get her out. My older human felt obligated because he helped save the cleaner's unborn baby from the dangerous next door neighbor who wanted to hurt her for being a Ukranian immigrant. She justified herself on the premise that all Americans are rich. Then when we found we were just about out of money, only then did she offer to lower the price. She doesn't understand that my older human earned his money years before she was ever born. He was forced to take stock by the company so they wouldn't have to pay their workers a proper monthly pension. He only got it once a couple years ago and was under pressure from the same manager harassing my younger human because it was his retirement money. What was good money in his time is barely minimum wage now. Just this last month he had to let a bill go to pay my yearly vet checkup. And now he's just out of the hospital from a hernia operation and we don't know how he'll be able to get out to get the rent. On top of that, we got inspection notices for next week (I wish they'd just leave us alone). It makes our indulgences tame by comparison. How fortunate that my older human was able to pay off the burial spaces reserved while his folks were living while he had it because the rest of his family won't do it for him and my younger human. I wish we could get some of the money back that the cleaners took.
