Babysitter Mad After Parents Hire Her to Watch Kids Until 11PM to Attend Wedding —Then Don’t Return Until 5:30AM

The babysitter ended up calling the police to report the parents missing and later detailed the night’s events on Reddit

A couple left their babysitter in a panic when they failed to return home from their night out to attend a wedding.

The 23-year-old sitter recounted her roller-coaster experience in a recent Reddit post on the popular “Am I an A——?” subreddit, explaining that she was hired to care for the couple’s 13-week-old baby son and 2-year-old daughter until 11 p.m.

She said her evening gig, which began at 5 p.m., got off to a smooth start. “I put them to bed by 7:30 p.m. and started putting the house back together,” she wrote. “At 10:15 p.m., I got a text from the parents asking if I could stay until 12 p.m., and I told them that’s fine and to have fun.”

But midnight came and went, and the couple did not arrive home as promised. “I sent a text asking if they’re close and didn’t get a response,” she continued, explaining that she began to grow a bit concerned at that point.

“I can be pretty anxious, so my mind started thinking they got into an accident or something bad happened.”

Another hour passed with no word from the parents, so the nervous babysitter pulled up the city’s Twitter page to look for any news of road conditions or local accidents that night.

“2 a.m. rolls around, and I kid you not, I have called around 15 times and received no answer from either parent,” the OP continued.

As dawn neared around 5 a.m., she finally decided to call the police and report the parents missing. “I told them I couldn’t keep [the kids] after having them all night,” she recalled. “The police showed up at 5:22 a.m. and took a statement from me.”

The officers asked the babysitter to remain with the children until they figured out a plan of action.

Just before 6 a.m., however, the parents finally showed up.

“At f—— 5:48 a.m., they roll up and are greeted by the police. The mom ran into the house, thinking something had happened to the kids, and sighed when she saw they were there,” the OP recounted. “’Our phones died, and we didn’t know how to get home from the venue,’ is what she said to me, and I was fuming! I called them irresponsible and the sh——- parents I’ve ever worked for.”

The babysitter said she then demanded to be paid on the spot and left the house. Shortly after, she received a lengthy message from the couple “about how this is my job and I’m a huge a—— for disrespecting them and calling the police.” They told her she should have left the kids with neighbors or called their emergency contacts, instead of involving the police.

The babysitter’s post garnered more than 800 comments, with people almost unanimously taking her side in the beef.

“You actually did the right and safest thing,” one person wrote. “Also it’s 2024, who in this day and age doesn’t have either a portable charger or car phone charger? They are parents. They should have been prepared for their phone dying.”

They added, “Wipe your hands of them. You didn’t do anything wrong.”

Another person chimed in, “These parents are horribly irresponsible. I wouldn’t have even left my baby at 13 weeks at all, never mind for hours without contact. Calling the police was 100% the right call.”

Quite a few commenters even suggested that the parents’ wedding night story seemed “fishy.”

“That story does not add up in the slightest,” argued a Redditor. “Okay, let’s be generous and say both their phones died. Did nobody at the venue have a charger? Was there no gas station around that sold one? Would nobody lend them a phone to call and check on their kids and babysitter? Way too many things had to happen to lead up to 6am without contact.”

Many thought the couple was simply taking advantage of their babysitter. “Their phones were fine, they just got tipsy and got a motel room so they could have a night away,” another person wrote.

Yet another Redditor commented, “They decided to have a date night and find a hotel. Then went to sleep — an uninterrupted sleep was a bonus with a newborn.”
