I am a personal assistant for several people in NYC. My main client cut back the hours she needs me. This led to a frank discussion about money and why I was looking for new clients.
Client: Why are you looking for more work? I cut back your hours because you were going on so many trips. You seemed financially fine.
Me I’m sorry, but you don’t get to choose how well off I am or not and then cut my hours based on that.
Client: I don’t know why you’re upset with me about that.
Me: Because what you did was incredibly presumptuous and has hurt me monetarily.
Client Well, let me think about this and maybe I’ll schedule you for more hours.
At which point she cut my hours even more.
