Mary Poppins would never have put up with this shiznit.

I love discovering that I am more mature than someone else. It's even sweeter when that person is older than me. I showed up on time at Chad the Dad's house this morning, since I never heard back from him as to whether he wanted me to come today or not. A recreation for you (with the exact transcript):

Knock, knock. Door opens. Chad the Dad glares at me and doesn't say anything for a few seconds. "Oh, you're here." "Well, yes, I didn't get an email back from you, so I wasn't sure..." "We aren't going to invest anymore time in you." Door starts to close. "Okaaay...?"

What?!? Are you kidding me?!?! That's how you're dealing with the situation - ignore a perfectly polite email, force a person to drive 45 minutes unnecessarily, then act rudely to them? I'm sorry - are you a 3rd grader? Good grief. No, I take that back - 3rd graders don't deserve that slam. Well, Chad the Dad, I am done with you and your crazy family. I am taking my pride and my REAL name, and heading out the door.

Adios.

Is there some kind of "rate the family" function to these postings?! People need to know they are crazy! I'm sorry you had to put yourself and your gas-guzzling vehicle through that this morning. What was I thinking, not kidnapping you when I had the chance? Or going with you! It would have been just like a Janet Evanovich book. Anyway, let me know if you'd like me to take out an ad castigating them to all of Skagit county. I am SO ready!

Wow, seriously, other future "nannies" need to be warned about this crazy family. I'm glad you got out of there when you did. I must say the thought of you and Princess of Ales confronting them a la Janet Evonovich leaves me in stitches. I'd love to see that encounter!

ditto keby! ;) I'd pay money to see that. Mugs, I hope you did something on your way out... like dent the mailbox or something

Wow...all I have to say is wow...You know, sittercity.com and care.com allow people to leave reviews of employees. You should see if you can leave reviews of customers. I give you credit for even getting out there and going back there today!

That is horrible! And didn't you say that man is in public office? I'm sorry that you had to go through that crap.
