"Sign this contract in the next 12 hours or our verbal agreement will be considered terminated"

ETA - we did, but we've given notice per contract that we've found another sitter.

No sitters, no demands. I don't do sitters...

LOL First of all, a babysitter is usually considered an employee, not a visiting dignitary, so demands are not made by me or them, really.

Second of all, most of our sitters are family so we just act like people around each other...asking nicely, replying politely, etc.

I used to babysit and I was pretty easy since most of the families were my students at the preschool I worked at. So one day I go to do a meet and great even though I know the family well. The little boy had just woken from a nap and was shocked and a bit upset one of his teachers was in his house and he started hitting his mom. She is taking a beating and asks me "what would you do in this situation" and my honest response was that I wanted to know what she does since it's not school but her home. It was just odd to me.

My cousin once told me she wasn't babysitting unless she could sit on the baby.
I let her, the kid loved it.
