Mistakes I understand. It was my babysitter’s insociencance about work and money, two things that as a single mom drive all my thoughts and actions, that when I discovered I’d been overcharged for last week’s work, it stung in a personal way.
The minute I noted the error I fired off a text to Catherine. I assumed there would be a quick refund with a “no problem.” Nothing of the sort. Instead, I was to suck into explaining basic math to a 20-year-old college student.
