Drag lesson

Основной текст, ministory A, ministory B, урок vocabulary (грамматики) по нисходящей

Twenty years ago, my sister and I bought a business from our mother. We all love and
respect one another
get along well.
will be finished paying off the business in two years.

Our problem: Mom, who is now 77

still draws a salary from us  
above and beyond
 the payment for the business.
Her workload has
lessened greatly,
as it should. She could do all of her work in one day and
lessen the burden
of her salary. However, she says she’d —
go crazy
if she retired . We don’t want that. She could still come in
as often as she wants and do her
personal paperwork,
letter-writing, reading,
etc. These are all things she does at «work» —
on the clock.
If we try to discuss this,
Mom gets hurt and says, «Just let me know when I’m
not worth the money.»
We don’t want to do that.
We would hope she would see the
fairness of this and
suggest it herself.
Business expenses are going
through the roof, and
there are updates we should make, but we can’t do it as long as we are paying Mom at the
level we are,
on top of the money for the buy-out.
