Babysitter using a Starbucks gift card for a large coffee frappucino with a shot of espresso and whipcream. She was with a girlfriend who had a latte (hot coffee drink) and a four year old blonde headed boy. It was around 5PM. They sat at a table and she gave the boy some square cheese crackers from a baggy from her purse. The boy wanted to taste her caffeine drink and she let him have a sample three times. Three times! Her friend even commented about the caffeine having him bouncing off the walls and the babysitter said "I'm done at 6, they'll have to deal" and she laughed. I realize this is minor, but it just seemed like such a bitchy thing to do! The babysitter was attractive with long, dark, straight hair and very green eyes. The boy who was probably 4 was wearing a blue and yellow vertically striped polo shirt. This was Wednesday. As a mother of two children under 6, I had a problem with what I observed. If you do not share my concern, that is your perogative.
Additionally, I would like to add that it would be very obnoxious of an employee to send her employer the Nanny Bonus feature anonymously. And if someone did choose to do that hoping to affect a specific result, I think they will find they sorely miscalculated my tolerance for such antics.
