I work for an older woman but she is not just my boss she is more my friend then anything else, my hubby works for her more often then I do. I was invited to one of her parties as a "guest", my hubby worked the party (hubby does almost anything including excellent cooking), which is fine and nothing new about this. I have been invited many times and I come and I always help out my husband and make sure no one needs anything even though I am a guest at most of her parties. Anyway it hasn't ever been mentioned before but several times today she said "don't do that you are a guest", she didn't sound upset or anything so I just responded with "I know, but I don't mind"....Problem is when hubby and I got ready to leave she paid me $15.00 and I said "Betty you can't pay me I was a guest" and she said but you weren't just a guest you worked". You can't really argue with Betty so I took the money but it's really bothering me and I am worried that I may have upset her because I helped out but really I did it more out of habit then anything else. Anyway hubby does more work for her on Monday and I am hopping she can find out if I hurt Betty's feelings.
