CL- WTF on I SAW YOUR NANNY by MPP
Photobucket
.... WHAT?!

Feature Ad:
1) Nanny ready to whip your child into shape! (Modesto)
Nanny with 15 years of experience in disciplining children. I am stern but loving. Do you have a child who likes to say no a lot? Do you have a tween, who likes to talk back? Fear not! I don't use belts for discipline, nor do I leave any marks. I specialize into turning toddlers into respectful tweens, and teens you've always dreamed of. I have glowing reviews from satisfied parents. Don't missunderstand, I am a loving and caring nanny. My rates are negotiable starting at $17 an hour, $1.50 for each additional child. Don't delay, interviews are granted on a first come, first serve basis :)

NOTE***
If you don't believe in physical discipline, I am not the nanny for you. I don't leave marks, or anything like that. I'm not into harsh beatings. Before you hire me, I would like you to sign a waiver saying that you give up the right to sue me, and you giving me permission to discipline your child in an appropriate manner.

I didn't get past the first one yet...

But oh my God! This woman is nuts!! I'm not against parents spanking, but I am 100% against nannies, babysitters, STRANGERS, hitting kids.

And it sounds to me like her main point is "I don't leave marks."

"Fear not parents. I leave no marks. So there will be no proof you hired someone to smack around your kids."

#1 is sick but some people will probably fall for it.

I wasn't sure why 21 was included (room and board for just a few hours a day), but then I thought, no one has a 'little' homework, 'light' cleaning, or a 'little' laundry. You either need someone to do these things or not. Trying to lure someone in like that is just dishonest.

Waiting for the bashing... said...

Clover to each their own, the last family I nannied for would tell their son in front of me that I could spank him if he acted up.....of course I never did and never would have but each family is different. Some parents approve of spanking while others don't.

Chantel said...

Wow..Number 1 is a dream come true. I've been searching to give someone permission to beat my children into submission.

Seriously, WTF is this woman thinking? Never would I hire someone and sign away a right to sue them if they hurt my child. Screw that.

VAnanny said...

I'm not even going to TOUCH #1. Absolutely ridiculous.

#3 was amusing as the "manny" was only interested in talking with "people of wealth". Seriously?

Clover said...

A family i nannied for told me all the time I could spank their son if time out didn't work. I never even considered it. Just seems so wrong to me.

Every week I'm shocked by how many people are willing to leave their kids with someone new within hours of even learning the persons name.

CuriousDad said...

#1 could be a troll looking to take on someone else get their information and accuse them of being child abusers to the Child Protective Services.

Village said...

Let me torture your children. What, she doesn't have her own to hurt?

And the guy looking for a nanny, maid, cook, and lover. Ah, that used to be called a wife.

Good ads this week.

East Bay Nanny said...

I can't believe no one's commented on #2 yet! To me that one should be the Feature Ad and #1 be the honorable mention.

That guy's ad had lots of great lines but my favorite had to be close to the beginning where he says he's looking for someone with "old fashioned family values"!

My values are pretty old fashioned and I couldn't imagine me or anyone else with similar values ever going for this!

Although, you can't blame him for trying. Who knows? Maybe he'll get a great nanny/housekeeper/girlfriend all in the same person!

East Bay Nanny said...

OK, Village commented while I wrote my post. My thoughts exactly - he's really looking for a wife. The way he's doing it is a little creepy though.

nc said...

I wonder what #1's experience is, so she can ask for $17 an hour?

$2 is just weird. So he is just looking for a girl friend/wife as their is no mention of being paid.

Someone said...

On a second thought, I don't mind beating up a number of parents that I know.

Katia said...

Why is #8 included? The parents work full time-I am sure the little boy wants a big brother/college student type to play sports/games with afterschool.

Kim said...

In 8 they say they want an AuPair, but they don't want that person to live there on the weekends. Is he supposed to fly back to Europe every weekend?

MinuteMuggle said...

I feel bad for number 7.

Im gonna email him. :)

hehe.

hehe.

:)

no, really.
I am. lol

Katia said...

Thanks Kim-I totally missed that part!

Ravenswood Nanny said...

#15 sounds like a great job to me! i'd totally apply for it if i needed a temp 5 week job. i especially liked the compensation note: "enough to make you happy." haha.

jessica said...

I live in in New Canaan and make $20 an hour before taxes. Many of my friends in this area and surrounding make more.

hijabiniqaabi said...

NC
I think it depends where you live.
I know nannies in the dc area who make more than $20 an hour.
I have only 6.5 yrs of experience and I make $16 a nour

Joy said...

16 cracked me up. what famous person would hire her? she just sounds like a lonely old woman who watches too much TV.

nc said...

I understand that it depends on where you live, but who would pay $17 an hour for a nanny, who is only offering, atleast in her had, to spank your child?

nc said...

That should read, 'in her ad'.

BadMondayMissDee said...

Number 1 sounds like she harms the children worse than what she describes.

Perhaps number 2 should be listed as the What?! ad of the week, however, that honor goes to number 1. It's not often that you see nannies posting on CL looking for permission to abuse people's kids.

mom said...

Has anybody left a comment in the past couple of days? what's up?

MonopolyMissDee said...

Mom:

I was thinking the same thing. There have been no new sightings, news, or anything posted in the lsat few days. Jane and Mary must be outside playing or having coffee that they neglected us.

Jane and Mary we still love you, even if I have been asking for the ISYN nanny tee shirts for three years.....

mom said...

Well, if that's true, I hope they're having a BLAST!!!

jennifer lecarlo said...

This is a feature? I can't believe there are that many BAD ads to make a feauture about. I'm speechless.

jennifer lecarlo said...

But this is great. Do people know about this? This is really funny in an odd and unassuming way. :)

Great idea.

SoCalOCnanny said...

Joy...I take offense to the "old" part on the 51 yr old woman's ad. I am 51 and I nanny 2 children who are 23 months old. I keep up with them as well as their "young" 30 yr old parents. 51 is not old. My mom is 70 and she is constantly telling me she ISNT old.
