Being a new parent comes with its own set of challenges, including finding reliable childcare. When a couple’s usual babysitter was unavailable, they turned to the husband’s sister for help.
A Babysitting Problem
Nikki recently shared her recent babysitting problem with Ayla from the Country Mornings with Ayla Brown show and asked listeners for their thoughts.
She Hires a Regular Nanny
Nikki shared that she just had a baby, and they have a regular babysitter.
Her Nanny Wasn’t Available
But this particular time, her nanny wasn’t available. So they asked her husband’s sister to babysit.
She Had an Idea
Nikki mentioned that her SIL was always hanging out at their place.
She Asked Her to Watch Her Baby
Although her sister-in-law has never watched their child, she does babysit as a side job for other people.
Hanging With Them
Nikki assumed since she was always hanging out at their place, she would probably not charge them.
But She Charged an Absurd Amount
However, things took a turn when her sister-in-law said, “I’ll charge $250 for the night.” And that this was with the family discount.
She Had No Choice
Nikki was taken aback, but as it was late and no other babysitters were available, she reluctantly agreed.
Nikki attends the same college as OP and she wanted to borrow some expensive books from her. Nikki decided it was time for a little payback.
She told her sister-in-law that she would charge her $300 (the cost of the books) if she wanted to borrow those books for the fall semester.
Her SIL was shocked and told her that she was being unreasonable.
Was She Correct?
Nikki was wondering whether she was wrong for what she did, and she asked the listeners for their thoughts.
Petty or Not?
Ayla posted a poll on Twitter asking whether Nikki was being petty or not. The vote was split, with 54 percent of listeners voting that Nikki was correct, while the rest said that she was just being petty.
