Default My Brother-In-Law

Is a real pain the the butt. So is his wife.
Since I now work for him - actually I was hired to work for his partner who takes care of the financial part of the company. My BIL just spends the money so we also have to track him so he can pay back what he spent on personal crap. I mean crap. Most of the money is spent on going out for dinner and buying electronic toys.
So, every week I write all the checks to pay for their household bills. What's the wife doing?
Every week there's an electronic toy that needs repair, I spend time on the phone with XBox or whoever then drive to the UPS Store to ship them off.
Now, he had me buy a bunch of toner cartridges for the office printers and wanted me to order a skid worth. Well now, guess who has acquired the job of putting a case of them on eBay and dealing with that? Me. So, today, I am off to the UPS Store once again on my personal time to deliver a package.

Oh yes, I forgot, I also have the job of selling his 2003 Nissan XTerra. I listed it here and it's no longer anywhere towards the top of our list. I told him to get it out of his driveway and put signs on it. It's been listed here and on Craig's list and only one inquiry in over a month. He wanted to know why I haven't had any interest from you guys here. Should I be honest with him the next time he asks.

So, what do you guys think a 2003 Nissan XTerra with around 60,000 miles should go for? We're starting at $10,900. I'm getting ready to lower the price to way less than that so I can complete my job assignment.

Lunch break?
We all eat while working. I tried once to actually not work while eating my lunch and it didn't work out very well.
I just started working for him in April after I left my GM job because of my back injury that was causing me to "not work up to my expectations". I was given a week off without pay because my boss at Powertrain thought it would force me to get "healthy".
Now, my doctor and my chiropractor told me that when you have as many screwed up vertabrae as I do and have had as many accidents as I have (black cloud?) that the pain will not go away in 1 week, with or without pay.
After I returned to work the following week I was told I could apply vacation time if I wanted to. I didn't, I quit instead. It was a contract position with no future.

No, I'm working for BIL while my husband and his partner are getting their new company going then I'll be working for 2 brothers for a while.

Ah, the joys of working for family.
