Is this kinda ridiculous to expect?

Hiring a babysitter an telling them if they decide they can't babysit for you anymore they need to give you a 2 months advance notice? I think it is a little ridiculous. I thought 2 weeks was all was needed as a notice if you not working for someone anymore. What are people thoughts? I am thinking about finding a new job but if I find one wouldn't it be rudiculous to tell an employer I can't start for 2 months due to my job I have now. Why would they hire someone and have to wait that long to get them working for them. If you were hiring someone and they told you they can't start for 2 months would you still give that person the job?

That is seriously ridiculous and I wouldn't mind dropping them like a dime at ANY time after hearing that shit.

I gave my last employer a months notice but that was so I could complete all teh projects and assist with transferring my files to the person assuming them.  It was my offer and they accepted.

Yeah, it is silly.  Is your work now requiring a 2 month notice?

 Yeah that is a little much. I think its best to give as long of a notice as possible though. Finding a babysitter isn't easy and can often take a lot longer then 2 weeks.

Yeah the parents I babysit for asked me when I started working to give a 2 months advance notice if I need to stop babysitting for them.

Quoting ejkdmom:

2 weeks is fair.  2 months is really ridiculous.
