Nanny grocering with 2 little girls. Both blonde. Both under 4. One may have been as young as 10 months. Observed her loading groceries and children in to the car. I was sitting in parking lot a distance away. Nanny was heavyset with reddish brown curly hair, white or possibly part latina. She was wearing standard taupe uggs. Jeans. Driving a new looking Pathfinder in Black. After the nanny loads the kids up, she goes back to the bags of groceries and is looking for something. I can not see from a distance what it is. Nanny then puts whatever it is in the front seat and climbs in the car. The nanny gets in the front seat and drives to a spot furthest from the entrance of the store. I can now observe her and she is eating something. Does not appear to be interacting with the children. Finally, the woman comes out who I am giving a ride too. I help her in the car, put her bags in my car. About 20 minutes has passed now since the nanny has been sitting in the parking lot eating. So I take measure to cruise by the side of her car. What is she doing? Sitting in the car with a half gallon of ice cream on her lap. Is this a case of employer's being stingy with the nanny? WTF? Why are the kids forced to be strapped in their car seats while this happens? It's nice out today, shouldn't they have been out playing???? Food issues?
