This Mom Refused to Pay Her Babysitter by Pulling the Deleted Message Card

By

It's 2019 now, so it's starting to feel like we've all been around the block a few times. We know how things are supposed to work and we realize when things are completely devolving into insanity. Example: People who do work expect to get paid, and that's low-key the foundation our country is built on. Bootstrapping and the American Dream and working yourself to greatness, and whatnot.

But even adults (mostly adults, TBQH) have these occasional lapses of judgment in which they forget the structure of the world around them and think... I don't know, that food and rent and, umm, surviving is something others obtain for free. Or at least, that's what I have to tell myself to justify the kind of exchange that just happened between this woman and the mother he babysat for. 

A concerned brother posted screenshots of the exchange his sister had with the mother of her recent charges, and it was so infuriating, you just have to read it for yourself. 

It all begins after the babysitter has left the house. She checks in with the mom to say she had a great time watching her kids, and asks if she can swing by the next day to pick up her payment. She sounds sweet and perhaps trusting, judging from the fact she didn't just ask for cash before the left.
