Eii, Madam, are you his head? How can it cross your mind to make and insist on such request and expect to be obeyed. It turn like you be husby and he be wifee. If the table is turned and he gives you such instructions will you agree. Charley look for another person to drive the Uber and pray for guidance to identify other means of making genuine income. Don't force him, na two captains can't man the same boat.

Clara Oteng Danquah shared:

Ei obaa do u earn more than him? What if the car breaks down for weeks. That car could be given to a driver to fetch money as hubby continue his job. Think it thru na ppl are engaged in 2 to 3 jobs as citizens of this umofia land

Just listen to yourself. Would you have resigned if he asked you to do same? Please don't put pressure on him. Please get a driver to do the Uber whiles you use the proceeds for a side business and stop pushing the man .

Laurinda Xolali Adusu-Donkor said:

Resign for how? He could do the Uber thing in addition but to resign de3 not a good thing to do. At least not when he has not even started the Uber thing yet. But you didn't tell us how much he earns. There are other equally good side jobs he can get into.
