A 28-year-old babysitter was put in a deeply uncomfortable situation when her client behaved irresponsibly and was chronically late getting home to her kids. So the babysitter finally took action. But after receiving major backlash from the mom, she took to Reddit to ask if she did the right thing.
I (28F) do babysitting on the weekends to make some babysitting on the weekends to make extra cash. There is one family I definitely should've fazed out by now but the kids are cute and if I don't have another job, it's easy money. My issue is, the mom is never home on time. She used to not give me return times but finally I started asking as it made it impossible to get anything done on the weekends. I'd go babysit so she could go to "brunch" but she'd be gone from 11 AM to 7 PM. My whole day was gone. After that, she'd start giving me times but never stick to them. She wouldn't even call to tell me, she'd just stay out.
