It’s understandable to have certain expectations when hiring someone to babysit your children, but one mom is expecting a bit too much, for very little pay, and now she’s being roasted online for it.
An anonymous mom’s babysitter ad was recently posted to Facebook’s r/choosingbeggars forum and folks can’t quite get over her nerve. The woman is looking for someone to watch her two six-year-old daughters, and has a whole host of demands, including that the sitter has to work at the woman's house from 6:30 am to 6 pm, needs to provide food, and it has to be only vegan and organic, must submit to a criminal background check, which she’ll give them $5 if it’s clean, and they must be available weekends without notice.
While that’s already pretty outrageous, she only wants to pay the sitter $100 a week, and then has the nerve to write that after six months, if things work out, she’d up it to $150. The ad goes on to note, “No you cannot sleep at my condo. No you cannot have friends over. No you cannot study/watch YouTube/be on your phone while on duty.”
As you can imagine, folks were pretty shocked at the mom’s outrageous demands.
- “Why would you expect a sitter coming to your house to provide food for your kids?" one commenter noted, while another added, “I will never understand how people could leave their children in the care of someone who is willing to accept $1.66 an hour.”
- "And you get a fifty dollar raise after six months!,” another commented. “Who on earth could possibly find this anything other than a great deal -- looking after two kids for 100 bucks a week and accommodating their mother's frankly insane demands will surely be balanced out by the fact that you get your weekends free...oh, wait.”
