I have a sticky situation I would like some help with. I work for a nice family. I am not completely happy but in these tough times I am sticking to it. The problem is the family's friends. There are two moms who are friendly with the mother I work with. They are both SAHM who employ Au Pairs and they are not at all happy with their current situations which they voice to me nearly on a daily basis.
The problem is they both keep asking me to come work for them. At first I thought they were not serious but now it's happened so many times I am beginning to think they are! How can they be trying to poach a friend's nanny???!!! I have now taken to avoiding them at the playground as this is making me very uncomfortable. I don't want to make any waves. I keep laughing it off and saying no like it's a joke but they are becoming more aggressive in their approach, even asking how much I make there and what my responsibilities are etc. How do I say firmly yet nicely that I want them to stop asking and that I am not going to change jobs?
