I bribed my stepdaughter to

Do the dishes by promising to take her and her friend to Starbucks with my gift card. She did a good job so I’m happy.


She should be helping with the chores, anyway.


Yes. I know. But I’m not her mom really so I can’t tell her what to do. But we are trying to get her to help out here and there

Um, she lives in your house. You should definitely be able to tell her what to do.


We don’t operate that way. Only her dad tells her what to do. But her dad isn’t home today. He’s busy taking care of his late fathers affairs. I know her real mom and dad want her to do the dishes so that’s how I got her to do them. Otherwise my husband will come home and be upset and he’s already upset with everything he has to deal with in regards to his dad.
