When hiring a babysitter, parents typically want someone who is smart, capable and good with kids. But one mom wants top-quality service without having to pay for it.
The mom in question sparked a heated conversation online after she posted a babysitting ad that included some hefty demands, such as a degree, around-the-clock availability, specific political preferences and, oh yeah, payment of only $10 an hour.
The ad for a babysitter was reported to have been posted on Facebook originally. They wanted to find a sitter for their three children, who are five and three years old and the baby.
It was eventually shared on Reddit and included the headline, “Delusional Babysitter Requirements”. This ad is really getting people up in arms.
Within 24 hours of it being posted, it had over 1000 comments.
It wasn’t long before the comments started racking up, including the following:
One wrote: “9 years experience is very specific!!
“Also, would be worried about someone who had the degree and/or experience but was still willing to graft for $10 an hour.”
Another added: “It REALLY sweetens the deal of looking after and feeding 3 young children and 2 dogs all day every day for $2 – sorry, $3!! – per mammal, per hour, doesn’t it ;)”
And one said: “I see you only have 8 years babysitting experience? NEXT!”
