Weird stuff can happen when you leave the room
“Not a parent, but once caught the babysitter taking the baby’s blanket, putting it around her neck like a small cape, and ‘flying’ around the room with it on. Keep in mind, the baby could only see out of the crib and was not present for the show… Needless to say, we found out she was often very high while babysitting.” (gooblagoobla)
When my babysitter would get high she would just eat all of my parent’s food and sit on the couch. At least this one would have been more interesting to hang out with and maybe share some of the chips…
I’m Coming Out
“My buddy has a camera that sits on his doorstep. It has a motion sensor and every time it detects someone or something on the porch, it snaps a photo and sends it to his phone.
It’s a Sunday morning, and for once, his two year old isn’t shouting into his bedroom to get him out of his crib. Ah, yes. A rare morning to lay in bed. His phone goes off. A photo of a little red-headed boy reaching out of the front door to grab a package appears.
And that’s how he discovered that his son could get out of the crib.” (Kalae)
Don’t Stab Grandma!
“When I’m home from college I babysit for these pretty wealthy people. At the time the boys I would babysit were about 2 years old and 9 months old. It was summer and I had laid the younger one down for a nap, then took the monitor out with me to the backyard so the two year old could play. I hear sound going off and see arms reaching into the crib to the sleeping baby. I grabbed the two year old, a knife, and slowly walked upstairs. Their grandma had come to see if I needed any help, but didn’t have my number so she didn’t text me she was there. We laughed about it but never have I ever been so ready to shank someone.” (foolsdayeveryday)
