I’ve seen a lot of posts asking for childcare at below-poverty wages. And a lot of the time I get it, childcare is stupidly expensive and yet it’s a necessity for most families. But this woman’s request takes the cake. The audacity and delusion are just top-notch. She has since deleted any negative comments to her post, but the request is still up.

ThrillionThis is an HOA community? What does that have to do with it other than maybe you can’t park at the house? I guess this would work if a couple applies with one the nanny/house keeper and the other working for pay.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
