The children are napping so I figured I would post something. Not much new, I lost 2 of my full time day care kids. Their parents decided to stop paying me on time (or at all) started dropping off early without asking (like 45 minutes early when I was still sleeping) picking them up late, not showing up without bothering to call. I had had it with them I was going to give them my 2 weeks notice last monday when they dropped the girls off. Only they didnt' show, or call. And they owed me for the week before and had promised to pay that morning. So they show up Tues morning, early, and she paid me but shorted me $70 and claimed she would have it that afternoon. I decided to wait to give my notice until she gave it to me. So she shows up 45 minutes late and just looks at me and says |
"I don't have the money, husband was supposed to put it in my glovebox while I was at work and never did, I don't know when we will have it"
"This is getting a little rediculous, you guys need to pay me" (I didn't even say it bitchy I was perfectly nice)
"You know if you are going to be a fucking bitch about money we don't need to bring our kids here anymore!"
"OK don't. I was going to give you my 2 weeks notice anyway this isn't working out"
"Fuck you and your 2 weeks, we are done right now. If you ever come near us again I will call the cops on you"
"FOR WHAT?! Your the ones that hired me to watch your kids, I was always reliable, did everything with them and you screwed me over!"
"It's not about being reliable, we don't need to be reliable, I helped you out!" (screaming from outside)
"How! How did you help me?!]
"Well, it's not my fault you write bad checks!"
"What are you talking about? I have never written a bad check in my life"
"Well, why else would we have to pay you?"
"umm, because I watched your kids, I am not a charity."
"Well, I'm not paying you"
"Then I am not giving you any of your things back that are here" (carseats, clothes, toys, books, diapers)
"I don't care about any of that stuff" (random screaming and namecalling)
"Get the hell off of my property right now" (slam door go inside)
She was a crazy bitch. She did all that in front of the bewildered children, her 2 year old was clinging to me she had to pry her off of my leg. She owes me $150 that I will never see. I don't even care I am just glad I don't have to deal with them anymore. I had my add in the paper last week, not one call. Hopefully this week we need the money. Thanks to the failing economy Jarrod has had little to no work and is looking for another job. I am going to write up a contract for any new people and they are going to have to pay for the week in advanced in stead of the end of the week. I don't want to get screwed again.
What a psycho. Sue her. I watch People's Court. You'll win.
I'll try to call you later; Meg has a doctors appt and then I have to go to Costco and take both kids for haircuts.
And I'll probably stop at the liquor store after all this on the way home (actually the war zone/construction site) right now.
BTW happy belated birthday!
Thank you! I loved my card, yours is always the first (and usually only) one I get every year. I was thinking of taking her to small claims court but I have to look into the costs to see if it would be worth it. I think I can charge her for 2 extra weeks since she didn't give me any notice but I am not sure.
And definitly stop at the liquor store, that many errands with 2 kids and having to deal with construction, drink up!
Somehow all the crazy people always track you down. At least now you don't need to deal with her anymore but it's too bad that you're out some money.
yeah, it sucks about the money but I will find more kids eventually and go about it differently. The crazies do always find me! I am currently dealing with one on myspace, the mom of one of Kurt's friends who took offense to the fact that it took me ONE WHOLE DAY (gasp!) to comment back to her. Seriously, it's myspace, I told her to grow up she didn't like that very much.
