Nanny Needs Advice - It's Over With ROVER!!!

Hi, I have an issue I need advice, my MB is always late. She walks in the door as I am walking the dog bc that means I am done with everything for the day. It could be 6pm 8pm or 10pm it doesn't matter. My ISSUE is she always says she is going to home at a certain time such as - 7:30, but if I have not walked the dog she does not come home. There are cameras outside and inside. I think she sits around the corner waiting for the dog to be walked so she does not have to "do anything" when she gets home. Which makes no sense bc I always take care of EVERYTHING so she does not have to. I have tesdted this theory and it's ridiculously obviously this is what she does. My ISSUE is she lies about when she will be home every single day. I have a life too and a family to see and there is never a set time I can go home. I think 7:30-8:30 is reasonable but 10:30 pm on a school night is not ok and she knows that.

She does not have any regard for my time or life. I'm sure I have not explained this well but I am just venting the point. I hav worked with this family for years and many weeks it is wonderful! But when MB does this it's terrible for my family. I feel like a doormat . Ugh, if anyone has any advice that would be great. I want to know why she does this and should I talk to her or not. Although I think she would deny it. She is not unaware either, she knows full well I have a family that is waiting and needs me. Thnx guys!!

No one can take advantage of you without your consent.

There are a few things which are not clear - for example is it part of your written or verbal contract that you MUST walk the dog. If so, you need to change this because clearly you do not always have time to walk the dog. If not,then you need to have a sit down with the mother and say very professionally what you said here. That you must be home at a given time for your family - boom done gone. Not keeping your hours regular is unacceptable. You can confront this in a very nice way, keep us posted

Are you sure you're not a babysitter? Nannies don't whine that their BOSS won't come home because they have a life. Honey a good nanny WORK is her life. I'd tell you that you are needed when I'm not there PERIOD and maybe you need MORE work to do to keep you busy and occupied.

Are you a Russian troll?

To the OP, the person who replied the message above is either a troll or abusive.

Sit down and ask for a schedule. If they won’t give you one, leave, there are people out there who will treat your humanely.

I'd say don't tolerate it. Make it very clear what time you are supposed to get off such as 8:30 and explain that you must get off at that time to see your family. I hope you at least charge her extra if she's late so start with that if you're not. If she doesn't mind paying an extra couple of hours then consider doing what my daycare lady did. She'd wait 30 minutes after closing time. Then take the kids home and leave a note on the door with her location and phone number and the parent would have to go to her house to get them. If MB complains, rationally explain that you could not wait any longer as your family needed you.
