I just started babysitting for an agreed $100 per week. It's 4 days a week for about 5 hours. I was surprised that the mom shorted me because of the days her kid was sick and she didn't bring him over. I was willing to watch him even if he was sick but she never asked (she had her boyfriend watch him. A boyfriend I didn't know was available to watch her son). Shouldn't she stick with the $100 per week she offered me? I have bills too. And she never said it was an on-call-$25 per day job. She offered $100 per week, I accepted.
Maybe I should just let it slide, but I don't see how I can ever count on this job if I just take whatever, whenever she feels like it... hmmm
