Would this make you mad too ?

This afternoon I got a call from a friend I havent really seen in awhile ( or talked to in awhile) ... She acted upset and wanted to know if I could babysit her 2 kids all night ( the youngest I have never even seen before) because she had a family emergency.

So she brings them and I have to admit they are no angels ( which i know, no kids are... but they are REALLY REALLY far from angels) ... I finally get the youngest to sleep around 9pm and then the oldest wants to talk to his mom, so i keep calling trying to get ahold of her and finally someone answers, and I realize she is at a party, and when she gets on the phone she is obviously wasted.

I understand sometimes moms need a break, but I definatly wouldnt have watched these kids if I knew she just wanted to get high ( which i think is disgusting) ... would that make you mad too?

( not to mention i am not getting paid and she sent no food or snakcs for them )

  • I would be really angry but look on the bright side, now you know to NEVER watch her kids again. She burned that bridge.

  • I'd definitely be really angry. I don't agree with getting high at all. I think it's even worse that she lied and said it was a family emergency. She burned that bridge, for sure.

  • WTH I wouldn't watch them no more for her. She too advantage of your kindness.Makes you wonder what she do with them when there is nobody to watch them and she really wants a hit.
