I just started working HH last Monday and already having issues with it. I went to a persons house on Wed for a short few minutes (literally), I picked her up to run to the store etc. I was with her for about 2 hrs and only dropped her off and carried her grocery's back to the apartment (very very small apartment), I did not stay in there because she wanted to put her own stuff away and told me to just leave everything on the couch..so I did.
Well, the problem I have is since then I have been sick. I'm sneezing like crazy, coughing, runny nose. All the same symptoms of a head cold but a little different to me. As I get older I find more allergies, the cotton on our trees is blowing like crazy this week too so it could be that, the persons house I went to has 11 cats...11 indoor cats that absolutely smell terrible and she lives in absolute filth. My DH is telling me to refuse this women that they put me with for 3 hrs on Monday "cleaning her house". I am thoroughly disgusted with this, I have cried over it because the house is literally a path to walk through which is full of kitty litter. My vehicle smelled like cat just from her riding w/ me, it took 2 disinfectant sprays and 2 days to get rid of the smell.
Can I refuse her since working just a very few short days. I'm thinking of quitting already because they have me working EVERY day a few hours 8 miles away from me, I get every other weekend off, thats the only days that I will be scheduled off of work, every other weekend. My schedule ends up being 12 days on, 2 days off every other weekend. I do not get gas mileage, make $8.00 an hour and have to run people to out of town appts or whatever on my gas which is now $4.00 a gallon. I told them I wanted part time being 3-4 days a week not part time hours EVERY day, I have 3 kids, go to college and have a husband to help take care of.
