If you’re a parent, have you ever had to have someone else’s kid over at your house several times in a row as a favor? Could you imagine if they expected you to do it without asking first?

One woman recently got into an argument with a mom at her son’s school after she tried to get her to take her son home from school without asking twice.

She is a stay-at-home mom and part-time piano teacher with two sons, ages eight and six. They go to the same elementary school, so drop-off and pick-up have always been easy for her.

Her eldest, Daniel, recently made friends with another boy from his class, and a few weeks ago, he asked her to arrange a playdate.

“I got in touch with his mom to organize it,” she recalled.

“I managed to meet the kid’s mom, and she seemed pretty responsible from my impression. The week after the playdate, I was picking up my two sons from school, and my eldest had brought his friend with him. I asked him where his mom was, and he told me she told him to just go with Daniel.”

She was shocked that this mom would do such a thing, and when she called her phone, it went straight to voicemail. She did not want to abandon the boy, so she took him home with her sons. She continued to call the mom and didn’t hear from her until two hours later when she called back to ask where her son was.

When the mom finally showed up to collect her son, she asked why she left him with her, and she said that she was a single mom and couldn’t make pick-up because she was at a pilates class.

She felt very angry about this woman using her as a form of free childcare, so she told her that if she tried to do this again, she’d report her to the school.
