So, I just have to tell you.
At playgroup. A lot of childminders take their charges there. Something to do to break up the day.
One childminder is moaning about a parent to another childminder…and I overhear:
They have a day off work and still send their kids to us. It’s like they don’t want to spend time with their children.
Yes she said that.
I felt like saying:
We are in a recession. We as parents have to pay you regardless of whether we send our children or not. Therefore we as parents are going to send our children every fucking day we can to get our fucking moneys worth. If you stop charging for days you don’t havr our kids, then yes, we’ll keep them home, but until that, they will come to you and we will enjoy our day cleaning the house and drinking coffee.
I didn’t say anything. I wish I had.
