Today, I was babysitting. Being kind, I went to grab their mail, while their 4 year old ate lunch. He locked me out, wrecked the house, and let me in right when he saw their car two hours later. I didn't get paid. I paid them. FML

never leave a kid alone...

what a little rapscallion.

ummm fake 4 year olds can barely reach the doorknob, let alone open or even lock the door. ydi for not knowing this toddler had super jelly arms and was a really smart and evil for his age.

no, it's not fake. The 2 year old I watch can reach the door handle and I can see her starting to fidget with the lock. Within 3 months shell be able to lock and unlock the doors. For the average 4 year old the door handle is at about eye level.

actually my brother is 4 and has locked me out the room many times his not tall enough to lock the door but clever enough to get a chair or toy to stand on and lock the door.

I put FYL but you deserve it for leaving that child alone...what if the kid choked on something?

You let the four year old run around inside alone four two hours?? Didn't think of perhaps getting one of the neighbours for help, or borrowing thier phone to call the parents?

fairly certain that taking someone's mail is a crime, if you got in the house and the kid ruined any important documents they may need to report it so they don't get in trouble

it's illegal for you to touch someone elses mail or mailbox YDI

62 illegal to touch a mailbox? really? what if your hand mailing a letter. she wasn't takin their mail she was getting it for them. I do that whenever I babysit or take care of friends animals and they appreciate it. I guess it depends how well you know them

@62: It is also illegal for a women to be on top in Massachusetts. Not every law has to be enforced or even matters.

that one is enforced though. there are many branches of that law. you can search them up because they are strictly enforced by all law enforcement.

when you buy a mail box, you don't own it. the goverment owns that mailbox, so when you buy on it's like your RENTING it. and if you hand deliver a letter, you don't put it in the mail box, you put it under the door.

OP left for 30 seconds. Dont overreact

ydi for not going to the neighbours house and explaining what happened and using there phone too call, or maybe they wouldve had a key. dumb ass.

Agree with #1. They hired you to watch their kid, not get the mail. Although 4 is a little old to easily choke on food, it still could've happened. Or you could've gotten locked out... Bottom line: Watch the kid!

pretty sure a federal crime is enforced...

wow I would NEVER let someone like you babysit my four year old son.you're a complete idiot for leaving a child that age unsupervised. I hope to god you learn to take care of kids better before you have your own. take a fucking babysitting course before you try watching someone else's kid. EPIC FAIL!

haha thts an awesome little kid. 4 yr old - 1 you-0

YDI for trying to molest your grandmother.

^^Noooooo. never Again OP, why didnt you just wait dor the kid to finish eating and take him/her with you to get the mail?

cuz I'll never get a son

cuz u'll never get a kid

126 you talking to me about never getting a kid?

what an effed up kid....... funny though no offense op lol

never ever ever leave a kid alone !!!! :/

I've babysat kids of all ages and have 2 of my own. leaving a 4 year old for just a minute is not bad.

People should catch up on the laws, as it's not illegal to "touch a mailbox". Damage it, yes, but it's perfectly legal to get the mail if your overseeing a residence (which in this case they were). it would, however, be a crime to open the mail without permission. On another note, you seriously didn't break a window to get in to the kid since you obviously had no intention of calling the parents....

I'd kick him in the nuts if they let me babysit again(it o were u)

another thing: it's bad enough to leave a 4 year old alone, ESPECIALLY when he is eating. you fail at babysiting.

I pity the fool that trusts a 4 year old!

I wonder what snickerdoodle would say to you...?

Blue is back pitying fools. Great! LULz

Rawr, I'm Ginger. hear me ROAR! Am I right? Do I win?

I never thought anyone would actually appreciate my pitying of fools. :)

DonkeyDelight yesh you do win. mainly because of the hamster lifting weights but your joke was pretty(damn) hilarious

Dam that sounds crazy, but u shouldn't of left your kid alone. lol

Grab an air soft gun, a key, and a swat uniform. Then barge in and scare the shit out of the kid... Don't ask how I came up with this...

Sorry but YDI for not preparing for that to happen. Kids are jerks.

Not all kids are jerks. Kids 2-5 are all devils.

Or is it bueno? oops...=]

Unlucky, mate! You'll master the art of spelling one day!

I never was good at Spanish... ;/

never leave a kid alone in the house! YDI.

Jesus Christ OP deserves this, not just for leaving the kid alone, but also for not knowing how to handle a four year old, because she didn't call the parents or even ask the neighbours if they had a key. You really are the worst babysitter ever, what if the kid had harmed itself? you are a complete and utter moron.

Haha. The kids I babysit are wonderful :] I'm 12 ;]

People trust a 12 year old to babysit? I'm not saying you can't, but I feel like 12 year olds could still get babysat.

Wow, what a little asshole.

Why'd you pay them?

Most likely to pay for the damage that was caused by the OP leaving their child unattended.

you should never leave such a young kid unattended. still, what happened does suck :(

Don't EVER leave a little kid alone for more than 30 seconds! They will almost certainly tear up everything within reach.

Seriously. The kid's four. How hard would it have been to carry it out with you to check the mail? However, I still vote FYL because you have to be a babysitter. Kids are demons. -.-
