Cheapskate Mom Denies Babysitter Promised Pay, Gets Owned & Taken To Court

It’s an oldie but a goodie, this tale. In terms of trash like that, this story definitely takes the cake. We’ve been talking a lot about entitled cheapskates. After watching these woman’s kids for eight hours, the babysitter was not paid the prearranged amount of $16 per hour. The babysitting client had argued that a free day of fun and ice cream was a reasonable trade-off. It goes without saying that the babysitter disagreed and posted screenshots on Reddit. They went viral rapidly, and Redditors urged the babysitter to sue the rude mother. The mother ultimately had her just desserts, and we’re fairly certain that the experience was better than getting free ice cream.


You really won’t believe this but this actually happened. Do you want to hear that story yourself? Scroll down below to take a look at the screenshots of the conversation with a cheap stake mother.

1. This is how it all started. When OP’s sister asked for payment from the mother, she denied agreeing to it in the first place and asked for proof

Text - PM It was great watching and Jh today! I efjuyeu them. Do you mind if I swing by tomorrow at 2pm to collect the money? I wasn't aware payment was involved. You got free ice cream and a day of fun...I'm sorry for the misinterpretation. Uhm...we discussed payment of $16 an hour beforehand. Over text. I'm sorry, could you show me those texts? Doddit

2. When OP’s sister showed the mother her texts, she said she usually deletes messages and then asked to agree on $20 total

Text - Great, see you then. $16 an hour sound fair? Perfect. I'm looking forward to working with them. I'm excited! seems to have a knack for you! Go easy on him! Hahahahahaha l will! Thank you so much for this opportunity. Of course, call or text if you have any questions. Will do! Thanks again. Delivered I delete my messages often. I'm sorry, but as much as I love seeing your kids I am doing this for payment. Exclusively. Well, you're acting kind of stuck up aren't you? Can we compromise at $2

3. OP’s sister explained to her how much the total is and that she cannot settle on anywhere lesser than that

Text - No. I watched your kids for eight hours and we agreed on $16/hr. $128 is the total. I am not paying you $128 for a single day! They're easy kids! It's not a discussion of that. You promised, and I have textbooks to pay for. Please, I would accept $100. Delivered

4. The cheap skate woman called OP’s sister a c*nt and threatened to block her if she contacts again

Text - Absolutely not. I wish I didn't have such a stuck up cunt watching my kids. I am going to block you now - please do not contact me again. Are you serious? Sent as Text Message

5. This is what OP used as a strategy to the money returned and it worked

This was really surprising. People such cheap always find ways to dodge giving money. And when they are threatened to be taken legal action, they become straight up. Why don’t they mind being straight and fair in the first place? I am very disappointed.
