Nanny rant : do I have the right to even rant about it ?

My nanny has been working for me for 5 years .
She knew for at least a month that I'm having surgery on October 5 and it's on a day she works . She starts work for me at 4pm
I have been asking her for a long time if she could start at 3 that day.
Last night she acted like she didn't know my surgery was on that Thursday 5th
I felt so pissed
I know she works at another house in the morning and that she comes straight from that house . One Thursday she told me that she was not going to come to my place because the other family needed her . She didn't ask for permission. She simply said if you don't have anything important on such day , I'd like to not come .
So now that I actually need her , first she acted like she had no clue and today she's telling me that she will let me know this weekend
Gosh...I'm so pissed
She knows it's only my 6 year old and myself
Can I at least feel pissed ?
She makes $18 per hour at my place when most people I know pay $10 to $13 per hour
She's a mother and grandmother so it's like like she's young and irresponsible
Her daughter , who's doing an MA in social service seems to have better skills
FYI, I don't even know if the title nanny is right . She comes to work hourly and she either cleans (if I'm out with my son or at home but in charge of my son) or babysits if I need to leave . So she probably doesn't fit into the full category of nanny

Part of me feels like telling her that I don't need her anymore

Sounds more like a communication issue get a notebook calendar for both of you and write in the days and times you need.

As long as you are sure you told her it is time to replace her .

Of course you can be mad. She's being unreliable. I would be upset too. But you have a couple weeks. Make some back up plans now. Hope it all works out!

Can she take your daughter with her at her other job?

I can be your nanny. $18 an hour sounds good to me.
