Who doesn't love to hear stories of other people being miserable? I have a collection of babysitter horror stories ready to dish out to you. Enjoy my pain!
My mother raised my brother and me as a single mom while constantly traveling for work, so she was always looking for a babysitter. I've had A LOT during my childhood. Some were amazing, while others were...umm...worthy of a story time video!
Today, my mother and I laugh at these babysitter horror stories. I'm glad that I'm older, so my mom no longer struggles to find someone to watch me. It's truly hard to find a person of quality when you can't pay that much and so many lazy people see it as an "easy side gig." Another tricky part is that a babysitter's references can easily be made up, as she has asked friends' parents to answer the phone.
I don't have any regrets because I learned a lot about different personalities. The mean-spirited babysitters taught me a life lesson. I also hope they have bad karma for days!
