I took care of a woman (Parkinson's) for 5 yrs. The husband retained me to continue to clean the house after she passed. He insists he "loves" me and wants me to move in, etc. I have already stated I am not interested and I am only willing to clean house for him. He tries to do things for me even after I refuse his help.
He accused me of being "nervous" when I called and asked him if I could come in two hours later than normal due to ice on the roads, he said my "logic" (I said it was not appropriate) was flawed when I wouldn't let him pay to insulate my attic This is really getting tedious.
I need this income until I can find another job to replace it. I am trying to maintain a professional attitude and express my concern that he is not acting right. He says I just don't get it or understand. I do understand but I am not a stand in for his wife... period.
I do not feel comfortable talking to his family about his behavior. They were not involved during their mothers illness and do not come visit him very often now.
I am looking for other work and will give him notice. I really am trying my darnest to maintain a professional demeanor.
Two of his friends asked me if he had asked me to marry him yet. So obviously he is talking about me to others?
Any suggestions.. other than.. get another job.. would be greatly appreciated.
