Any mother knows taking care of children can be difficult. And, when you need a break, you pay a babysitter to take care of your little ones so you can have some space. Without a doubt, it’s worth it, but also, babysitters earn their money. That’s why you always pay them. But, one Reddit user shared the story of how her sister got stiffed by a mother after watching her two kids and—OMG, it’s insane.
The woman contacted the mother after she babysat to collect the payment, but, the mother had other ideas…
Obviously, the sitter was not going to accept “no payment.” She even proved they had discussed prior with screenshots.
After the sitter reminded the mother of the payment agreement, the mother freaked out and refused to pay.
The sitter said she would even settle for $100 which was less than they agreed upon, and still, the mother said no. Then, she blocked her number.
People on Reddit had a lot of thoughts on how to handle her.
I delete my messages often’ OOH OKAY THEN THE SCREENSHOT I JUST SHOWED YOU IS INVALID. how dumb are these people.
I’d post this on her Facebook page if I could. And on all her friend’s pages, and every childcare page… let everyone know that she refuses to pay as agreed after service has been provided. Maybe someone will shame her into paying what she owes?
I doubt this is the first time this woman has pulled this stunt. What an asshole. Small claims court for sure. If anything, to prevent her from doing this to another sitter.
What kind of mother thinks that a grown ass adult would watch your shit kids with nothing but “a day of fun” as an acceptable form of compensation?
I would put the whole thing on any baby sitting facebook groups, CL ads or literally anyone you know/find in the neighborhood. I would also show their spouse, pastor and mother. Hell take out an ad in the local paper. They need a good lambasting.
I would totally report her to everyone I know.
