Furious Father Teaches Sleeping Babysitter A Lesson She Will Never Forget
A father in the US has caused a bit of a stir by ‘kidnapping’ his own children after finding his babysitter asleep on the job.
Christopher Soares realised that he had left some paperwork at home so he left work and returned home to pick it up, arriving around 10am. What he saw when he walked in the door made him see red.
His babysitter, 35-year-old Sarah Judge, wasn’t playing with his 3- and 4-year-old children, nor was she even watching them — she had snuggled up on the lounge with a doona and pillow and was fast asleep!
The shocked father decided to get evidence. With his kids still there, Soares started filming the incident and waited around the house to give Sarah the chance to wake up and confront her in person. After waiting around for a half hour, he decided to take drastic action.
Without waking up his sleeping babysitter, the angry dad took his kids with him and returned to the office.
Then Christopher began to receive a series of frantic calls from the babysitter, who had awoken to discover the children that she was supposed to be caring for missing from their house.
Furious with everything that had happened, Mr Soares posted everything to Facebook, including photos of his babysitter asleep on their couch. She then turned things around, filing a harassment complaint against him. Facebook then took down the father’s post, but his story lives on as a warning to all parents.
Meanwhile, the police didn’t feel the negligence warranted criminal charges.
While it might be considered that the dad over reacted, it took the babysitter two hours to contact him regarding his ‘missing’ children. Two hours!
These young children had been neglected by their babysitter all morning and it looks as though she had always intended to turn up, see the parents off to work and then sleep the day away on the job. Her little set up does not look like she was just resting her eyes for a few moments, she was pretty comfortable there.
This dad had over two hours to sit and fume over this appalling situation, no doubt wondering how often his children had been neglected in his home while his babysitter slept the day away. His actions are those of an angry father intent on teaching a harsh lesson to someone that put his children in harm’s way.
Naturally, though, opinions are divided on whether he went too far. What do you think? Was this a shitty thing to do to the sleeping babysitter, or completely deserved?
How would you have reacted in this situation?
