FML’s babysitters

When you’re a parent, you can love your kids as much as life itself, but sometimes you need to get away from them. You might need to have a night off, go out with your significant other for a nice meal, or see a movie with some friends. Or just booze it up all nice and proper at a party (yes kids, parents do that too). Otherwise you’ll wind up eating your own eyeballs if you have to spend another evening listening to them whine about everything that’s wrong with the world (usually their lack of ponies). This is where the services of a babysitter come in. Babysitters are usually adolescent girls who are known about via other parents. Good babysitters are like gold dust to parents. Their contact details are passed around like state secrets; you don’t want everyone to know about them in case they’re overbooked for when you might require them. Trust is the key element in the parent/babysitter relationship; you can’t just leave your precious children in the hands of some unknown teenager. Especially these days, what with paranoia at all time high. They could be a meth-head. With a biker boyfriend. Who might steal your M*A*S*H* box set. Most of the time, everything runs smoothly, because, well, despite what some sources might have you believe, life usually does go as planned and is pretty much risk-free. But once in a while, both parties get embroiled in situations where things go a bit sour. Things go wrong. Embarrassing things occur. You know, the kind of situations that FML likes so much. We’ve put some into video format, and we hope that you enjoy them, and even giggle a bit.
