I am a professional Nanny myself, and I take my job very seriously. I have been in this career field for seven years now. Last week on Thursday I was at the Memorial Hall Library in Andover, MA. I saw a "goth" looking Nanny that I have seen around town before. She has facial piercings and many tattoos on arms and chest. Hair is black with platinum blonde bang area. When I saw the Nanny she was in the Children's Room over by the computers. While browsing through books with "my little guys" I overheard her charge (about 3 yrs old boy blonde hair) tell another woman that he couldn't find his Nanny. She responded loudly with, "oh, isn't THAT your Nanny over there?", loud enough that the Nanny should have heard. She never looked up from her cell phone and never said a word to the boy. After observing her for about 20 minutes I discovered that the little boy had a even littler sister (1 yr old or so, bald headed). The Nanny never spoke to the children or looked at the children as the little boy carried on a very lengthy conversation with a woman nearby. The baby was toddling all over the place, looking in peoples purses and picking up keys. Either of them could've left the children's room or been taken and she would've never even noticed. When I say she never looked up, I mean NEVER. Not once. She just sat next to the puppet show.. texting away. I was horrified, and so were all of the other people who wittnessed her negligence.
