NOW IS YOUR CHANCE, BECAUSE SHE COMPLAINED ABOUT YOU...TO ASK MRS HOLD TO GET A JOB!!!!

Today, tell her you thought about it and that she was right. You need to be more aggressive at work. Then, you realized that strength starts at home. You realized you need to be firmer at home in your own family. Because you realized that this is where the problem starts. And you realize if you are more powerful at home and work, she will be more attracted to you and this will be a win win for all. Thank her for reminding you of all this.

Ask her if she will support you in this "change" in YOU.

Then, tell her nicely that you would like her to get a full time job by June 15th.

Tell her also that you need to save money to pay off credit card debt by firing her housekeeper temporarily.

Then, ask her how she likes "the new you".

Tell her this will translate into you being braver and more assertive at work.

I think this quiet calm respectful assertiveness you can practice at home will carry over to work situations too.

What do you think, HOLD?
