Babysitters enjoy spending time with kids, which is why they do what they do in the first place. But even though there are times when they claim their job doesn’t usually feel like work, they of course get paid for it just like any other regular jobs. However, one mom disagrees with the deal!
Case in point, a text exchange between a mother and a babysitter she hired is going viral on the internet right now. A screenshot of the conversation was posted by one netizen on Reddit, whose sister was refused payment after an eight-hour babysitting shift by a mother who claimed that “free ice cream and a day of fun” with her kids was compensation enough.
The Redditor said:
“My sister’s name is Kristen which is, unfortunately, all I can give you. She had never met [the woman] before, but my sister has her own babysitting website in our town, so that’s how the woman contacted her.
Beforehand, my sister described her as ‘respectful and courteous,’ which made it all the weirder that the woman attempted to turn around and scheme her.”
The screenshots began with the babysitter texting the mother, politely asking if she could collect the money the following day. There are certainly circumstances in which a parent may have to pay a sitter at a later date but evidently, this mother did not intend to pay the babysitter at all.
Their exchange quickly hit a sour note when the mom of two didn’t only refuse to pay the babysitter, but she even called her “stuck up” for wanting to get paid. The mom said that she has two “easy kids” so the babysitter surely didn’t have any problem watching them.
Whether her kids are easy to handle or not, it doesn’t really matter as she already agreed to pay the sitter $16 per hour for her services. On being told that they had discussed a payment beforehand, the mother claims that she deletes her messages often.
After the babysitter persisted, the mom first tried to bring the amount down to $20 from the $128 she owed before abusing the sitter and blocking her.
After threats of being taken to court, the disgruntled client allegedly agreed to pay the sitter the due wages.
The Redditor said:
“Guess what happened? Within thirty minutes, my sister was unblocked from the mother’s phone and the cash is set to return today at 2 pm.”

What was the wedding planner thinking?
There are no perfect weddings as there will always be some major or minor glitches throughout the celebration. However, couples would always try to focus on the happy and good side of their union, and try to ignore the bad ones — unless they’re just too hard to disregard.
Just take this one bride from the Philippines, for example. She was left with no choice but to cry her frustrations out after discovering that her wedding cake was made from polystyrene foam covered in icing.
