“Dear PoPville,

My partner and I are going on vacation for 12 days. There is a middle school-aged kid who lives down the hall from us, and I was thinking of asking her to water our plants for us while we’re gone. (I went through the plant phase of quarantine in a big way) How much should I offer to pay her? I was thinking $50 but I don’t know if that is too cheap in 2021!”
