I work with someone who often misreads (not misinterprets) information and has a more or less stream of consciousness writing and verbal communication style. It is difficult for me to understand him and he often confuses facts. He’s my equal, so I don’t have authority to send him to training and I am working on a joint project with him. Any advice on how I might reach him?

Does anyone have parents that live with them and if so, do you charge anything? MIL lives with us and watches our kids about 15 hours per week and in exchange we pay for everything.

We plan to continue to pay all utilities, grocery, vacations (when we can travel again), etc. Is this reasonable or put me in my place if this is in any way ungrateful...
