Good Luck Finding a Babysitter

after pulling this stunt ... Woman refuses to pay her kids' babysitter, saying she was compensated with 'free ice cream and a day of fun'.

A text exchange between a woman and a babysitter who took care of her two children for eight hours one day is sparking controversy after going viral on Reddit. In screenshots of the conversation, posted on the site a man claiming to be the babysitter’s brother, the mother says that she “wasn’t aware payment was involved” in her agreement to have the sitter watch her children. Instead, the mom thought that “free ice cream and a day of fun” was enough, according to the text messages.

In screenshots posted by Reddit user VortexThing, people can see the babysitter reminding the mother that they had agreed on a payment of $16 per hour. When the mom says that she doesn’t have those messages, the girl sends screenshots. However, that didn’t seem to convince the mother that she owed the babysitter anything.

That would have to be one big container of Ice Cream to look after 2 kids for 8 hours!
