I am so angry!

My brother and I made a deal together that if I cleaned the house every week, he'd pay me twenty dollars. I've earned close to $100 already and I'm saving up for a Zune music player for $130 because my iPod I've had for three years finally crapped out on me. Today, I cleaned. I did my usual stuff, dishes, counters, floors, garbage, living room, vacuuming, bathroom, the sink, mirrors, toilet bowl, it's lids, and everywhere else, the shower doors, and the bathtub. My brother comes home, looks in the bathroom and tells me I didn't clean the shower doors. :O This got me steaming. First off, since when did he become the freakin' inspector? When he started this deal, he never did specify just how he wanted everything to be clean. "As long as it's clean," he told me when he mentioned the deal to me. I spent two hours trying to scrub them stupid doors clean (they have some water stains or something that are impossible to get off) and so, he takes the cleaner and sprays it on the shower doors, and the stains are starting to come off on top. Yeah, those were the easy ones I cleaned too. Yet, they came back. He then tells me I didn't even try. Bullspittle!!! He wasn't even HERE. And he told me I wasn't getting my money. Yeah, we'll see about that. Have you ever been told you were wrong, when you KNEW you were completely RIGHT?

Acutedisaster -- how mysterious, especially with a bag over your head. I got a Zune - the biggest one - free! If you'd like to get one, I can promise you'll love the way to get it! Jus PM me, and I'll pass along a great site!

Well I know that feeling. Because my mom never seems to be satisfied when I clean my room. I hate it when I spend a few hours and get it mostly cleaned up and she yells at me for not getting it compltley finished. That got me mad after all the work I did she could of at least said good job your almost there or something like that.

hi acute yes indeed. i've had managers like that. your bro must be manager material. they make a quick judgement without all the facts. they are wrong and won't listen to the truth because they think they know everything. it is a rough fact in life. P.S. i've worked for a sister who didn't always pay me. i know it hurts. hang in there.

Yes, of course! DO you normally split the chores? then tell him he has to do his share of chores if you do not get the money! What a cheapskate, huh?
