If you called in the middle of a workday for a babysitter that you knew took care of kids for money, that you've used a few times.
How much would you expect to pay, no notice, from 2pm-5pm?
*please don't assume I'm the one paying.

Whatever rate I normally paid her...

If you've used her a few times, why are you unsure of her rates?

How many kids? At least $10 per child, per hour. Maybe more because of the no notice thing.

Just the one kid. I told her I'd do it for $20 total. She got mad and said I was asking for too much :/
