No, not an idiot... A genius! She obviously knew her son had that cut on his face and hired a babysitter to watch him... When she came back she didn't want to pay so she blamed it on the sitter. And now we are here. How smart! In all serious though, that was rude of her. You never really know what stories comes from babysitting i guess!
maybe not so much. I read this as the Mother wanting free child care. So she picked something that, even if the OP was very very diligent, could have happened. Children run in to things often. So, I read it as the Mom seeing the mark before and knowing she could blame the babysitter for it later... thereby getting free child care
Demand pay up front, no refunds. Seriously, as someone who has done this type of work, people will find any reason not to pay.
Next time you should point out anything like that before the parent leaves. " I noticed Timmy has a cut on his face; how did he get it and do I need to apply any Neosporin?"
She probably cut the kid on purpose to get free babysitting from you. Diabolical! PS: Don't try to rent a car.
