If only they'd of checked his hands for pen I suspect he would of been caught 'red handed' or whatever colour the pen was. It's their loss though, good luck job hunting!

Or if the parents had half a brain they would think "Hey, why in the world would our babysitter draw on our carpet with pen. CLEARLY our 3 year old who doesn't know better didn't do it." Then again, you were supposed to be watching.

The oldest one was three, and OP might have been busy with the baby. Kids need just few minutes to mess up things. OP can't be blamed here, but should've explained herself.
Movies have taught me babysitting as more of a help rather than a job.

I agree #2, maybe OP should have been paying a little more attention. But on the other hand, I know from experience it only takes a second for them to get into trouble.

So if any of you have been a babysitter before you'll understand. Kids can do things you'll never know about, or something you can't prevent. For instance, when I was nineteen my neighbor's son hit me in the back of the head with an aluminum baseball bat.

If there was multiple kids and the oldest was three, OP could easily have been feeding a baby or changing its diaper which would mean their hands were full for at least two minutes.

yeah, they didnt fire you for drawing on the carpet, dumbass. they fired you for failing your ONE job, which they pay you for. How complicated is it, really? To watch a kid, and NOT let him destroy part of the house?

I'm sure the parents will believe you over him. Jus tell them calmly your side. Hopefully they know you're more mature than that (and you're probably a better artist than he)

Well I was thinking that most likely the babysitter said something to the affect of "No he did it".
Also does no one understand sarcasm anymore?

44, on the internet people don't "get" sarcasm by default. You're writing TEXT. There's no body langauge and no voice cues to let others now you're being sarcastic. Use "<sarcasm>" tag.


65- They also had adjectives and adverbs to describe how a person spoke in them, too. Something you can't really pull off easily in a chat room or posting on a bulletin board like FML unless you're roleplaying to begin with.

65, In case you didn't know it, internet is not a book, because books don reply to your opinions. If you try to convey sarcasm properly, you'll only get "tl;dr" as a reply. And without doing it you'll be misunderstood. Enjoy the 21st century.

I hate kids like that. I don't know if a three year old should be able to do that without you stopping him, but sounds like a brat.

  jujubunni5  |  9

He's three. He doesn't WANT to get in trouble. Toddlers do things like that not because they're bratty but because they can. The parents should have listened to te baby sitter but don't assume the kid is a brat!

  1215116a  |  14

Yeah I suppose so, sorry if I judged too fast. I should have considered him being three and all.
