So I have been talking back and forth with a family. They seem(ed) pretty cool and flexible. I have been a full-time nanny for a couple years but I am going to be transitioning into another career (being a full-time Ph.D. Student). So my time in the nanny industry is ending soon. :(
So bit of background.... I am finishing my BA in Psych next Spring then leaving next Fall for Grad School. SO the family knows this but they like me so much they don't mind me working for them for about 8 months & I need a job until my Ph.D. program starts, so I guess it all works out....
They have a newborn but by the time I start working for them, their baby boy will be four weeks old. They called me today asking if I would be comfortable giving a blood test to check if I have HIV?!!
I have NEVER EVER had a family ask for a blood test- not even a urine test for drugs etc... Now I do not have HIV or AIDS so I am not worried about the results but this question has thrown me by such surprise I did not even ask why they wanted it... Any thoughts?
If I do work for them it will only be for 8 months or so but I just feel like it's such a strange request it has given me red flags about them...
