These Babysitters Dished On Some Of The Weirdest Gigs They Ever Took

They Were Also The Neighborhood Swingers’ Go-To Sitter

“I babysat a lot when I was between 13 and 15. At the time, I lived in a small town, and I was a very popular babysitter as I also worked at the daycare center.”

“Often, I would have kids from two or three different families at once. I didn’t care since I got triple the pay for having three different groups of kids.”

“But I was recently told why I always had groups of kids like that. Turns out the small town had a swingers club, and I was the go-to babysitter for their different groups.”


One Sitter Never Even Saw The Baby They Were “Looking After”

“A family member of mine was a babysitter in the 1970s, and a couple who lived nearby asked her to babysit their baby a few times.”

“I didn’t get the sense that she knew them well. But every time she would go, they said the baby was sleeping and not to disturb the baby by checking on it. The baby never cried. The parents would come home and relieve her. She never saw or heard a baby.”

“At the time, I don’t think my family member thought much of it. But, she has told me the story several times because it keeps nagging at her.”

“How could a baby be asleep for the entire time she was there, every time, and make no noises? Nothing. Today, she thinks there must not have been a baby, but she has no idea why they would hire her.”
