    I have been cleaning houses on the side for past two years. When I started my homes were small so my rates worked. My houses are getting bigger and my new customers are expecting a lot for very little. I was charging a flat hourly rate per frequency not sqft. 10 weekly. 15 bimonthly. 20 monthly and one time. Average hrly rate for deep clean in my area is 13.50. I know its time to transition to charging per sq ft, but not sure how. ALSO WHAT SERVICES DO YOU ALWAYS CHARGE EXTRA FOR for house cleaning and keeping. Thanks.

Not even before the divorce was final he moved a lady in from across the country the went to HS togther and they reconnected on facebook. From the beginning she has twisted everything I say and runs and tells my ex I've pissed her off. I can't breath without offending her. To make matters worse she agreed to watch the boys because my job is very demanding and I pay her. She always has to be in the room if I have something speak to the ex about. All I want is to heal and move on but her constant lies and stirring the pot is causing strife between my ex and me. I Want to tell her off but I know she make it worse. Any advice?

    I would prefer answers from people the understand the legal side of renting from a person not affiliated with a real estate office. If it makes a difference I reside in Kansas. I signed a 12 month lease for an older home. The electrical is not grounded, normally I would not have an issue my last house is the same. So I started situating the home this weekend and noticed every signal outlet is loose, the receptor and the plate. My first action was to take the plate off and I tightened the receptor put the plate back on ensuring the plate was tight as well. Once done there was a huge gap between the receptor and the plate. I tried using them and the plugs fall right out and the plug in the living room started sparking. I went to hardware store for advice and they said the receptors need to be replaced and the box is probably set in it needs to fixed the the receptor and the plate are flush. I talked to my landlord and she had a serious attitude with me and said the box was pushed back to save on the air conditioning bill. I told her I didn't care about the bill because I have to special needs children and the gap was an invite to stick things in there and I wanted it flush. My question is if she refuses to fix it what are my options for moving out with a 12 month lease? Would I have to owe her a years worth of rent to break the lease?

    I am a very shy, insecure person, and find my self constantly have to defend my self at home against my husband. Recently going back to work having always being on the defensive it is affecting me at work. Being able to relate to people also make friends has been extremely difficult. I usually end up being the weird person on the one that gets short abrupt answers and avoided for conversation. At this point being older I could careless about being everyone's BFF as if I was younger. I guess I read into everyone's expressions and responses and take it personal. I am in the mist of training and I am use to having one set of rules to follow. Here each shift manager has their own way and find myself being corrected and a lot people are way younger and can be snippy and I take it personal. I find my self always being on the defensive as if I am at home and it tenses things up. I realize I can use some counseling and I have some medication to calm my nerves. i was hoping someone could give me some tips in handling people at work.

I have to do my paper on Oroonoko and is their any similarities between the characters dismemberment and the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. I had researched 1700 England and found a lot of information through scholarly sources that hinted that she Mrs. Behn was very influenced by the environment around her and her spy trips rather than the crucifixion, and she hated it. My question is can you give me any tips on how to develop more writing from just the text? Maybe a mindset that I need to look at the story differently, or certain questions I can ask my self to maybe extract more from the story?
