See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I recently interviewed a babysitter. My girls were not fond of her. And she was showing classic symptoms of meth usage (including many open sores, dodgy...ect ect ect). I have found someone else, but I dont know what to tell this lady when she calls back on whether or not she got the job. I have a feeling she will think its because she is in a wheelchair when in all actuality it has nothing to do with it.
I live in a VERY small town, and after speaking to one of my friends about it, she confirmed that this person had a bad addiction in high school and she recently heard that she was using again, which in my mind adds to the feeling I already have about her. Which is not a good one. She also brought up at least 7 times in 5 minutes to bring my daughters their swimsuits so her fiance would take them swimming in their pool. I am very uncomfortable with this idea, and as young as my daughters are, they wouldnt understand. Also, her fiance and her were in trouble about a month ago for theft (it was in the newspaper but it didnt dawn on me it was them until I seen her). So those are my REAL reasons for not wanting her to babysit, but I cant bring myself to say "hey lady, sorry but I dont want you watching them because you are methed out of your gourd.". I dont want it to turn into a big thing about me not doing it because of her disabilities, that in itself has no bearing on my decision.
