And they say the childfree are selfish
My housemate is sick which means the whole house is sick and everyone we come in contact with will get sick.
It’s not surprising since my housemate runs a family daycare.
The one thing I’ve learned during the course of my housemates business is that some parents can be fucking stupid and have a large undeserved sense of entitlement. I’m not even going to talk about how some of them don’t pay their daycare fees and then bitch about not having anywhere else to go for daycare. “What’ll we do?” they cry because they need to go to work and earn money to presumably not pay their bills.
Seriously if you can’t afford kids or the fees associated with them, condoms are cheaper.
My housemate has taken three days off in two months because of illness and I’m not talking about getting the sniffles. She contracted fucking whooping cough from an unvaccinated child because she didn’t know it had whopping cough because A) the parents didn’t get the child tested (“because we can’t take time off work”) and B) she didn’t know it wasn’t unvaccinated (pretty sure the parents lied on the form).
What kind of dumbarse parent doesn’t get their kid A) vaccinated and B) not checked out by a doctor when it gets sick? Answer: A lot, it seems. The amount of parents whose thought patterns equal “I don’t want to get sick or take time off work so I’m going to leave my kid with someone who’ll get sick and then I’ll abuse them for taking time off when they get sick” seems quite common.
At least in this crowd of parents. Three sick days off in two months is quite good considering she only takes days off when she can barely move out of bed. That doesn’t include the fact she’s sick All The Time. She may have choosen to work in the childcare industry but she’s more invested in the well-being of children than the parents it seems.
So she’s up and about this morning after puking all night because she’s scared she’ll lose business because no doubt a parent will call her unreliable because they’ve had to scramble to find care for the fourth time in two months because someones child in care made her sick.
And they say the childfree are selfish.
