I'm the only income-earner Jan 17, 2018

A few years ago my dog was earning 25 cents an hour babysitting another dog with separation anxiety, but that gig ended.

Both the same! Jan 17, 2018

We both contribute about the same to our household with one little child.

None of your business Jan 17, 2018

Sorry, but I have not seen such a stupid poll for a while. There have been quite a few kindergarten polls, but the answers to this one beat the lot.

How can you have two answers that are the same?

And ProZ, I think it is really time to get rid of this stupid anonymous person. Either you are serious and you let people know who you are or leave it!!

I'm the main and only income-earner Jan 17, 2018

I'm a widow and I live almost alone (my daughter's dog keeps me company during the week or is it the other way around?)

I would totally pay a dog to babysit me. Why have I never thought of this?

(I was thinking of getting a cat recently, a specific one, but I would have to put bars or a mesh in front of my window, and I don't want to "breathe sieved air", which also happens to be a German synonym for "be in prison". Hm.)

"Both the same" option is missing in the poll

Fully agree with you!

My husband is a professional graphic designer but he is not a freelancer, we works as an in-house employee, so he has a fixed income. Mine varies, but on average, I earn exactly the same as him. So we both contribute equally!

In 27 years, that has been my status. I honestly hope my wife's earnings exceed mine as soon as possible. But so far, it hasn't happened.
