A young woman caused a buzz among Redditors recently after she dumped her niece with a stranger when she was supposed to be babysitting. If you think that sounds awful, wait until you hear the backstory!
She’s Happy to Be an Aunt
OP is a 24-year-old woman who sometimes babysits for her 1-year-old niece.
She generally enjoys the time with her niece and doesn’t charge for her time..
She Said Yes, With an Out
Recently, OP’s sister came to her 3 weeks in advance and asked if she could watch the little girl on a particular night.
OP said OK, but that she might have to pull out if something came up before then.
Something Suddenly Came Up
As it turned out, something did come up. Five days before she was supposed to babysit, one of OP’s college friends called her up.
She Got a Better Offer
A group of buddies who OP hadn’t seen for several years were going to be in town the same night she had agreed to babysit.
They wanted her to go out on the town with them.
She Gave Her Plenty of Time
There was no way OP was going to miss a chance to reconnect with her friends, so she texted her sister right away and told her she couldn’t babysit.
That gave her sis 5 days to find another sitter.
There Was No Answer
OP notes that her sister never responded to the text, but she could see that she had read the message.
She Showed Up Anyway
Then, on the evening she was going to meet her friends, OP’s sister showed up at her house while she was getting ready.
She said she was there to drop her daughter off, as planned!
Her Kid Was More Important
But OP told her sister that she couldn’t babysit for her, and asked her if she’d seen her message.
Her Audacity Was Unbelievable
Her sister waved her off and said that her daughter was much more important than OP’s silly college friends.
Can you believe the audacity of this woman??
She Ran for the Hills
With that, OP’s sister walked out of the house, got in her car, and drove away with her husband.
She Fell Off the Grid
OP tried to call her sister several times, but the other woman had her phone off, and none of the calls went through.
Her Neighbor Was a Godsend
Desperate because she felt stuck with the niece and didn’t want to miss the night with her friends, OP called a neighbor who did a lot of babysitting.
Luckily, the woman was free and agreed to watch the little girl.
She Fessed Up Before She Took Off
Then OP texted her sister and told her where the baby was, and that she could pick the girl up at the babysitter’s house.
She also reminded her sister that she was going out with her friends, as planned.
She Shut Off the Noise
OP didn’t hear anything for a couple of hours, but then her sister started blowing up her phone.
By that point, OP was out with her friends and didn’t want to get into a big fight, so she turned the phone off.
Her Parents Were Furious!
Later that night, OP’s sister and brother-in-law picked up their daughter from the babysitter’s house.
The little girl was fine and even seemed happy, but her parents were furious!
She Was a Complete Stranger!
The couple started texting and calling OP again, yelling at her for leaving their daughter with a complete stranger.
OP pointed out that she knew the babysitter, and that everything had turned out alright.
She Had Warned Her
OP also reminded her sister that she had given her plenty of time to find a sitter on her own.
But her sister had ignored that text because it wasn’t convenient for her.
She Put the Kid in Danger
Now, other members of OP’s family are texting and calling her, most of them siding with her sister and brother-in-law.
They think she acted irresponsibly and put her niece in danger.
It Was Her Own Fault
But OP thinks she was justified for leaving her niece with someone she knew and trusted.
And besides, she says the situation was her sister’s fault, not hers.
