Snippets: And You PAY Her?!

Wednesday, November 26, 2008


"My babysitter doesn't respond to voicemail. If I leave a message, I don't hear from her. But if I send a text, she gets back to me right away."
Um, excuse me? You give someone your hard earned money to ignore you? And you leave your children with this person?

Babysitter types listen up: If I have entrusted you with the care of my child, my heart, my reason for being, the most precious person on this earth you WILL respond to me IMMEDIATELY whether I've sent you a voicemail, text message, smoke signals or hired a skywriter.


  1. I have yet to hire a babysitter - only family so far. Kids today firghten me - and you have given me another reason. They aren't in touch with reality or they just don't care.

  2. I forgot my comment--I'm a little put off by the comment by Fratzels. I hapepen to be the parent of a few "kids today" that are firmly in touch with reality and any parent would be lucky to have babyist for their kids. Overgeneralization is not a good thing.

  3. Our neighbor across the street has occasionally babysat for us. She ONLY uses text messaging. She NEVER answers her phone. I never thought of it as a bad thing.

    She's a very responsible young lady and when she has babysat for us, she knows to answer my call.

    Hey I appreciate Fratzels comment. I would rather people to know that they don't want to have kids than for people to have kids and then NOT take care of them. I'm sure she was generalizing but, it's her opinion and she's entitled to it ;)


Thank you for visiting and letting me know your thoughts!
