Today, I found out why the parents whose children I babysit use me so often and on such short notice. It's not because they have abrupt nights out; it's because their kids hate me, and me being around is their way of punishing them. FML

You're not actually sitting on the children, are you?

And? So you can get some sort of sadistic pleasure from torturing them, WITH approval from the parents, AND get paid for it???? My dream job.

As long as you get paid, why should it matter?

I'd like to get paid too but sitting ON kids is a bit immoral

Not if you say "you know you deserve this".

So long as the kids don't try and assault you, it should be fine.

Those parents are creative and clever!

Yeah. Just take their money and roll with it.

That is job security right there. And in a bad market too. You are doing great.

#4, with your list of requirements, there are many positions in K-12 education that will make you very happy. If you are particularly sick, you'll get the most pleasure from being a gym teacher, guidance counselor or assistant principal.

You know me: if you can't beat them, scar them mentally instead.

The great thing about the children's education system is it's so fucked up you don't even have to TRY to leave mental scars!

Yup, sounds about right. I can picture Pleonasm saying "your parents will be gone for the whole night!" kids: noooo! Pleonasm: muhwahaha! *then he proceeds to the nearest computer for his daily puns*

You still get paid right? I don't really see a problem here.

Sounds like you have a future as a dominatrix.

In that case, I doubt OP has the will, but I bet OP would make a great sub-stitute teacher.

No fun to have people hate you, but hey- in most jobs you will be around people who hate you while getting paid. So this is just like the rest if life in that way.

You getting paid? Do the kids act like horrible brats? If you answered yes to the first and no to the second I would say that's still a pretty sweet gig.

Honesty, if this has been going on for a long time and she only just found out these kids hate her, I'd say that those are some pretty well behaved kids.

Well look on the bright side. You're still getting paid, right?

That's actually pretty awesome, kids tend to hate babysitters.. Don't take it too personally lol
