The babysitter saga continues

Backstory: I hire a sitter to pick my kids up from school and take them places. We keep losing sitters for reasons both legitimate (they graduated and moved away) and weird (lost her driver's license--oh vey.)

Last semester's first sitter got sick, was hospitalized for three weeks, and had to drop,out of school. Then we finally got a new one, but her class schedule conflicts with our needs next semester.

I signed on for sitter city.com and got a few leads, two of whom were coming for an interview today. We spoke through text, I gave detailed descriptions of our house.

NEITHER ONE CAME. What the hell? Do they drive up to our house and drive away screaming? It's just a normal suburban home! No dead bodies in the yard or anything!

I swear there's an underground sitter network spreading lies about us.

Talk to your daughters dance school and see if there was a reliable Grammy/mom who always loved bringing their kids to dance and see if she is interested in some extra money running your spawn around.

It's probably your DONALD TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT sign displayed on the back of the stuffed and mounted black bear that sends them screaming.

(j/k)

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.

Her's are average. I wouldn't take a second look passing her on the street.

The one from yesterday showed up, she seemed decent, but we had another interview tonight--

or we would have, but she emailed me and said she was sick. SO SHE KNOWS ABOUT US.

Actually I asked if she could meet us tomorrow, otherwise I'll just go with the first young lady. Who will probably tell me she accepted another job in the meanwhile.

Oh. My. God.

Tonight's interviewee did not show up. And the girl from Tuesday did, in fact, take another job.

You guys, I swear. My house is clean. My children are well behaved. I wore pants. WHAT THE HELL??
