So I did write the post for "No Christmas Bonus? Re-gifted present....Hmm!". I wanted to write because I'm very frustrated.
So the mom does not go into work all this week until 8:30pm. On Tuesday of this week, the schools are still closed and reopen on Wednesday. The mother wants me to come over all day to watch her 1 child (she only has 1). I am thinking to myself, "She will be home all day and her husband returns home between 4-6:30pm, why on earth would they need to me watch their kid?!". I find this hard to believe, that these people have a kid and will be home 'all day' but they need a sitter? So I take it, this is just another one of their excuses for being lazy. The child is 9 years old, pretty self-sufficient, why would I need to come over and watch the kid?!
Another thing that bothers me, they have me work on days that they are off with no work at all. So many times, I have had to drop off the kid to school (30 mins away) and then pick her up from school and when I would arrive to their house, the freaking parents are home lounging on the couch in pjs! I'm like hmm okkkkay! Seems they do not want anything to do with their child. I don't know, I just find this strange. They don't even work from home. LOL. I would love to lounge around at my house too all day long, but I don't because I'm too busy caring for their child LOL. Sadly, I have seen this with so many parents/families I have worked for.
Your thoughts? :)
Happy New Year!
