GIRL GETS EASY JOB WITH HIGH PAY, COMPLAINS DIFFICULT TO DRIVE AROUND

My friend is a kindergarden school teacher and got a job as a nanny for extra income. She’s taking care of a special needs girl, 8-years-old, every Monday, Thursday, Friday, and every other Saturday.

She only works 6 hours a day but most of that time is spent taking Ellie to swim classes, dance, gymnastics, tutoring on Saturdays. She also makes around $1,000 a week, which comes out to approximately $47 an hour (I did it over a two-week period, so $2,000/42 hours over the two weeks).

The mom even comes home early more often than not and she’s still paid for the full scheduled time. And if something comes up and my friend is asked to babysit last minute, she’s paid double for that day.

My friend was complaining because Ellie had a meltdown yesterday after swimming because apparently someone was being mean to her. All she did was take her to her mom’s work and explain what happened, then my friend was given an hour off (paid) while the mom took care of Ellie. She only had to deal with the meltdown during the 5 minute drive to Ellie’s mom’s work.

I told my friend people would kill for that kind of job where most of it is driving a kid around and waiting for her to be done with one activity or another and that if she really hated it that much, she should quit so Ellie could be with someone who doesn’t obviously despise spending a couple of hours a week with her.

She yelled that she should be able to vent about her job, which is stressful because she has to remember what activities to drive Ellie to and when to pick her up, to her friends. I told her if she can’t handle a job that easy and is constantly complaining about the kid, she shouldn’t be working with kids.

Now she won’t speak to me and our friend group is kind of divided so I wanted to know if I was wrong to talk about it.
