So I posted an ad on Craigslist for babysitting. I received a call from a lady who wants me to babysit her children on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays. I would have to pick them up, (all three children ages 3, 4, and 10) at their day care, and elementary school by 5 and 5:30. And the mother would pick them up by 9. And Saturdays I would pick up the children by 9 am till 1 pm.
She wanted me to start tomorrow and she wanted to pay me 300 a week (she offered, I was only charging 170!), for the days I watch them.
We were supposed to meet on Wednesday and talk and get to know one another better. I call her and she tells me she has an ear infection, and sinus. So obviously she had to cancel. She told me she would call me back Thursday or Friday. I didnt hear from her yesterday, but today, just 30 minutes ago i call her to see what the plans are for tomorrow and to see if I she still needed me to sit her kids bc she has school tomorrow.
So I call and she answers like this " Helloooooo (in an annoyed voice)" I say "Hi Amber" She says "Yeeeees (annoyed voice) I say "This is *My name*" She says "This really isnt a good time, it really isnt. We're all sick, Lindsey is here puking up right beside me, I missed another day of work, this is not a good time, Im going to have to get back to you on Monday" (in a very annoyed voice again) I say "Oh, ok, Ill talk to you then, bye"
I mean I understand she is sick, and all three kids are sick, but Lord, thats not a good way to keep my business... right? Im sick as well, I have Acute bronchitis Im getting over, so I know her pain. My two little ones are on nebulizers and are getting over their colds too.
I really** want her business! (she doesnt know this)
Thats why Im trying to stay in touch, But Im thinking that if she is this bitchy now, maybe its a good thing she doesnt call me back.
What should I do? Keep her business, or just kick her butt to the curb?
