Chronic Tailgate Makes Nanny Habitually Late
I have been late 3 times in the 6 months I’ve worked for my family been because traffic is horrible no matter what time I leave. There is always traffic accidents. The only option is to leave very early and be at their house early which is awkward and they’d expect me to work but do not want to compensate for that time. It is also difficult because I have no one to watch my son that early and I can’t take him with me because his school is in a different city. Every time there is a problem I offer to stay later that day. This week I was 1 hour later one day because of a car accident, and I agreed to work later that day. Now instead, they want me to divide it over 3 or 4 days the next week I work. I know I was late and have no problem making up the time but this seems silly to me. I’m also sad because one time when they had an emergency I cared for all 3 of their kids instead of my normal 1 child and didn’t charge them more. How shall I work this out?
