First off all Congratulations for the blog. I am currently a nanny for a 20 mos old and a 3.2 years old little girl. At this point I am having a couple of bumps with my boss.
She was mad because I told her i was going to arrive at 8:30am and she knew I was at the dentist appointment. As soon as she called I text saying I was still there and was going to call when i was done. I got at work at 8:50 and she was furious - also I request a day off and she cannot allow me since I gave her 1.5 week notice, she claims i need to give her a month notice.
I am extremely flexible with them, never leave at 5 pm but it seams the flexibility does not go both ways. And she also tells me I do not like her family, do not like her kids and we will sit down and talk - at the end of the day she does not even say a word to me and the next morning act as nothing have happen. I understand her frustration but also would like the to be more respectful and flexible with me (I work from 7-6pm most of days and if I am running 5 min late she takes it out of my paycheck) Once again thank you and I am looking forward to hear from you soon.
