Today, I was babysitting a 6 year-old and a 9 year-old. After they went to bed, I started working on a project for on my laptop that was due in 12 hours and fell asleep. I woke up to a dog licking my peanut buttered keyboard and the two kids sitting in the corner giggling. FML

Sleeping on the job..... May I recommend the little bells you can pin onto their clothes

Well, I hope the parents are ready to pay you back for it. And that those kids get a hard earned lesson.

Hopefully this little incident will result in a nice raise in your pay, courtesy of the parents

Well, I hope the parents are ready to pay you back for it. And that those kids get a hard earned lesson.

Why should they pay her back? She waited until the deadline was nearly up to begin her project and FELL ASLEEP while in charge of two small children. It's her own fault, and I have no sympathy for her. She also wouldn't be asked to return if I was the parent.

Not defending what the kids did, but if they were able to peanut butter the keyboard, they could have done any of the things you hire a babysitter to stop kids doing in the first place.

The children were asleep. I'm pretty sure babysitters are allowed to sleep, provided the children were, too.

I think it depends on how long you are babysitting and what is agreed beforehand.

Could be an overnight gig.

At least you didn't wake up to the dog licking your peanut butter covered balls ...err I mean your ... never mind!

as i read "dog licking peanut butter" i instantly assumed the worst.

Let's just hope the kids don't call their mom a slut and you get paid.

I said don't call there mom a slut. So that they can get paid...

OP continues: "And they don't even HAVE a dog!"

I read stuff like this and I'm so happy I don't have children. Horrible little brats. And see now OP can't really complain because he fell asleep and those parents will of course use their kids to slide out of replacing/repairing OP's computer. Sorry OP

Not everyone has fucking brats that do horrible shit like this. I have two wonderful well-mannered children thank you! Stupid misinformed bitch.

You deserve it for falling asleep while babysitting. You should know better.

Kids were asleep???

Let's hope they don't call their mom a slut and you still get paid.

Everyone is acting like Op opted for a nap when this happened. To me it sounds like Op was just so tired they passed out the second their hands weren't busy with something. I don't know about you but if you suddenly pass out from exhaustion, you're probably not doing it on purpose. Fyl Op, talk to your teacher or prof and ask what their late policy is, most will still let you submit late but with a penalty. Then take a good long nap.

On purpose or not, if OP was that tired that the kids could cause that much harm to the computer, think of what else they could have done. When your job is to care for children you have to be able to provide care, if OP knew they were too tired they should have canceled. I'd be beyond pissed if my sitter let that happen, honestly. Im not upset about the sleeping, but you have to know yourself and that you will wake up when you need to before signing up for such a responsibility.
