1 Bump

I was supossed to babysit for 1 night that turned into 3

One of my friends wanted to go out for new years. Since my so and i didn't have a babysitter for our 2 month old we stayed in. I said i would watch her kids for her overnight so she could go out (she was supposed to pick up her boys the next day @ 12) She didnt show or call. I tried calling but she turned off her phone. She didn't show til Monday morning claiming she got stranded. Which is BS. Then refused to pay me what she said she was going to. I would have done it for free. these kids are like my nephews. I will never do it again for her. She is now angry with me because i said i would never do it again for her. BTW she called tonight to see if i would watch her kids again. am I being a bitch or am i right?

  • I would have called cps and said the kids were abandoned after the second night. She couldn't find a phone and call you collect? I don't buy it.

  • I would have called police the minute that she didn't show up. It's one thing to agree to watch the children for one night, but to assume that you would keep her children without asking for 3 days is outrageous! And to have the nerve to ask you to watch her children again is crazy!

  • Are you effing kidding me?? I would have called the police by 1pm on Saturday. She just abandoned her child with you for 3 days and never called??? Honestly I might even call DYFS at this point. That is astonishing to me. My mouth is literally wide open. WTF??

  • Nope, she has no right to be mad. I would rethink the friendship if I were you.

  • I would have called the cops for abandoning her children, you might want to call cps now and report it who knows who she might dump her kids on next. And I would also end the friendship you don't need someone like that in your life.
