Me: Hello.

Him: Hi, is Amanda there?

Me: This is Amanda.

Him: I'm calling about your ad for babysitting. How are you?

Me: Oh, hi. I'm doing well, how are you?

Him: I am good. We have a two year old.  We just moved here. What experience do you have?

Me: About 8 years and I have a 15 month old of my own.

Him: Is he your only child?

Me: Yes.

Him: Are you trying for another?

Me: No...(I am pregnant)

Him: We are. Was your's a surprise or planned? Our first was a surprise.

Me:...planned.

Him: How long did it take?

Me: um. 7 months. ( I just made up a number)

Him: Okay is M-F, 8-5 okay?

Me: Yes, it would be.

Him: I don't mean to cut you off but my wife is calling, I'll call you right back.

Me: ....



What the heck is that?! I'm so creeped out! Who asks those questions?! I'm really hoping it's some 20 yr old that thinks he is funny! Because he was really strange! It sounded like he was interviewing my uterus...


*edit*

Oh and it was a private number. I won't be answering again. lol.

That is weird and I would not have answered those questions. I would have politely said that it was none of their business and been done with it.
