I've been wondering about this for a long time now and I just remembered when I saw someone patting and almost kissing her dog. So a few years ago I had a friend who was working as a domestic helper. She said her employers are mean to her and that they more kind to their pets. They were so strict to her, she is not allowed to be late from her day off, her salary was half of what was lesser than the supppse to be salary of a DH and she has bunch of work, sometimes she finishes at midnight and sometimes they yell at her when she makes mistake. Everytime she reason out she still gets the blame in the end. She said they even treat their pets well than her. Why do you think they are like that to her? If they can treat their pets nicely why cant they apply it on human, especially when that human was helping them a lot?

Pets can make the owner happy, that the reason why some people decide to have pet. Comparing to your friends job, theres no job or work that can make people happy, except the part when we have finish the challenge of some hard work. Working is full of stress and emotion are up and down. A worker are not hiring to make the boss happy, but to work and give profit to company, different with pets that suppose to make the owner feel happy and ease away the stress of their attitude.

Hi, That's my point there we all know that any job can be very stressful and all but considering my friends situation , the least her employers can do is be nice to her, after all, she also makes her boss' life less stressful by taking care of the stuff in their house including their beloved pets.

I have often wondered this myself. I have seen people give huge amounts of money to pet foundations. Spend a ton of money on animal insurance for their pet. Adopt animals from pet stores that have no family. Yet, they refuse to give money to the poor, don't like free healthcare or food stamps for the needy. Why? Is it because animals have no way to better their lives, and are completely dependent on humans, yet humans can pull themselves up by their boot strings and better their own lives if they choose to. I don't know, but it does baffle me.

Thats just terrible to treat a person that way, they should have treated her with alot more compassion and such. Its not right to treat anyone that way, as if they were a slave or prisoner. These people like to treat their animals well and that is fine, but it should be something equal. I treat my animals very good but it's the same with the people around me.

Hi Nailtech, I agree with you, it's really terrible to treat people that way but I guess some people are happy being mean to others. Well I'll just let Karma teach them their lesson. Thank you

Honestly, I am that kind of person. But I never treat people cruelly or rudely. I am more nicer to animals than humans, because animals are helpless ones. As for humans they can take care of their selves. There are just really people who loves to make things difficult for others. They seem to be enjoying it. God bless those people.

Hi, I dont have a problem with people loving their pets more than humans as long as they also treat others with respect. I like pets too, I agree that they make us happy and less stress. Maybe your right some people just love to see other people having a difficult time. Thank you
