Forza, what would you do if you don't really like the job someone is doing for you? But the person has been doing that certain job for you for over 10 years? (The job takes 20 minutes and gets done every other month....)
I haven’t answered this because I wanted to give it some serious thought.
My final conclusion is that if whatever they are doing is not taking away from your household (like pet grooming or housekeeping) AND is not a financial hardship for you AND this person is a friend then let it go.
If it’s something you must have done correctly and you cannot 1. Do it yourself 2. Live with how it’s being done or 3. Hire another person on top of the first to do it, then talk to them, tell them your concerns and that you want them to stay but you simply can’t afford to have it done twice. Then if they can’t or won’t …let them go.
Hope that helps.
