What she broke costs half her paycheck

Dear Amy: My partner and I are in our mid-70s and live in a small home.

For 10 years we have had a wonderful housecleaner spend three hours every two weeks cleaning our home (dusting, mopping, vacuuming). She does a great job.

This Tuesday, she broke our microwave turntable and said she would replace it.

I called her the next day to ask if she knew when she would be able to get it for us. She said she did n’t know when and apologized. I told her I had found a replacement online and the soonest delivery was Friday.

She told me that we should subtract the amount from her next check for her cleaning services. The total is over half of what we pay her.
