One of the best parts of babysitting is digging into all the delicious snacks and beverages, preferably after the kids go to bed.
In ideal babysitting situations, the parents purchase snacks specifically for the babysitter, and there's an open understanding that everything is fair game (within reason).
Of course, the unspoken rule in these situations is that babysitters won't completely empty the fridge or get wasted on the clock. When those lines are crossed, the dynamic can quickly shift from open and trusting to tense as hell.
AITA for firing my babysitter for getting drunk on the job?
This is my throwaway account.
My (37F) babysitter (16F) has been babysitting for me for about 2 months. She’s a very sweet and quiet girl and is good with the kids (4F and 8M), we’ve only had small problems here and there but nothing major at all. When she first started babysitting for me I had asked her if there were any drinks or snacks that she’d like me to keep at the house as she’s here from 9-7 every day Monday through Saturday. She mentioned that she really liked seltzer water and I had bought them for the first month, but honestly I forgot after a while and never kept any in the fridge.
