Did you ever do this while baby sitting?

After the kids were put to bed and sleeping you would snoop all over the house just to see what you could find for the fun of it? Like in the closets and drawers and of course the parents bed room. I used to love to do this.

  • I used to babysit a lot, and I would never do that.
    I also will never trust a babysitter b/c I know a lot of people have no problem being nosy assholes and I don't want some freak sifting through my underwear drawer. lol.

  • Hell no. I was visiting my aunt once and her babysitter and I were hanging out (she was 2 years younger than me) and she went snooping in their room and found a used condom. GROSS! It was in a drawer. You should never snoop on people. I don't have babysitters because of this.

  • Um no.
    You can get in trouble that way. You never know who has a nanny cam
    They could accuse you of stealing.
    I would never and have never done that. I wont have babysitters for that reason too

  • No I never did that I would be pissed if some one did it to me so I couldn't do it to them.

  • I agree with Blueliner and Mrs.Owen... thank goodness I don't use anyone other my parents as a babysitter. That's pretty rude. How would you feel to come home and find out that someone had been snooping around and touching your private things... especially in your bedroom? I babysat for years and I would never do that.

  • The most I ever did was examine the contents of the downstairs bathroom cabinet—and I'd already been in there to get a band-aid. It was mostly curiosity about the mom's makeup.

  • Nope, I never did it. The nosiest I got was to go thru the fridge or pantry, and they'd already told me I could. This is also why I don't hire sitters. If my parents aren't available to sit, then I just don't go out. When I work, they are either at school or at the home of a sitter that I know I can trust, the only person other than my parents that I trust with my kids.

  • No. It has a lot to do with that integrity thing. Integrity is what you do when no one is looking.
