~Confused About Hearing Nothing~

Lenox, Georgia
April 8, 2016 9:56am CST
The girl I was babysitting for told me on Monday that she would call me on Tuesday to babysit her daughter. Every day this week came and went-I have not heard from her at all. I sent her a message on Wednesday evening-just making sure everything was okay. She read it-according to FB and just never responded. This is the same person that gave me that amazing review-I am so confused! I sent her another message last night asking her to please message me or call me-and nothing. I give up, I am moving on and finding a new client I guess... I am a grown adult, if I have a problem with someone or just have a lot going on in my life-I would at least message the person saying "something". I cannot stand being ignored-especially when I don't even know why I'm being ignored! I am done venting now-maybe God has a client that's going to call who needs me more than she did. I don't know...

My she s no a al thoughtful makes me wonder what is up with her. T o gnore your messages is r ude but makes me wonder if she had some overwhelming event in herlife that plain made her overlook common courtesy.Im just giving her the benefit 'f he doubt. Im sorry she has treated you so rudely but maybe you will get a m uc h better client I hope so.

@Hatley I was giving her the benefit of the doubt earlier this week because I really like her and her daughter. But now? I don't know what to think to be honest. I have been waiting for days now with no word. It's confusing me. Thank you, I hope to get a better client as well.

I hate when you contact someone and you can see Last read (Facebook) , or last seen (via text) and they still ignore you!

@infatuatedbby Yeah I just think it's really mean and disrespectful, she could have at least said something to me since she saw the message.

Me too. Except there is this guy from Canada who keeps messaging me on FB. I don't know him and why is he on my friend list? The trouble is that he never says anything important. I have too much to do to chat about nothing. So I ignore him most of the time.

@akalinus Lol, that was funny to read. In that situation I understand more than this one. She should be letting me know something at least and not leaving me just waiting. I can't hold the spot open so I will have to replace her even though I didn't want to!

@jstory07 I agree, I don't understand people at times. I really don't.

It does seem a bit weird that she would totally ignore you and your messages. Hopefully you can find a new client that is more reliable

@Marilynd1225 Yeah, I don't get it at all. Even if she found someone else she could have at least told me.

Well, I think the "why" too much and also I dont want to sound always negative, but maybe she has some real problem going on at her end at this moment. As she had been your client earlier who had given you an awesome feedback, why not drop at her place just to find out if all is good at her end. I know, professionally, this maybe way too much and not at all ethical of you (professionally, that is) but still no harm in paying a personal visit.

@thesids I don't know where she lives, she has always came here for me to watch her daughter. I would do that if I knew where she lives but I don't. I am just left wondering. I wrote this in order to move on and get over it.

@LovingMyBabies That is a big clue that you don't know where she lives. She is more complicated than you think she is. There may be things going on that she does not want you to know and you probably don't want to be involved in.

@LovingMyBabies Ouch that makes things more difficult to understand. I do hope that you get over it and move on. I know you care and probably that is why you are feeling yourself more uncomfortable when you have no information.

I don't understand why she's ignoring you, especially after giving you a good review. She should have the common curtesy to at least respond. But some people don't have that. It's good that you're moving on and trying to find another client.

@dodo19 Well everything changed a little bit ago. She apologized and told me what was going on in her life so all is forgiven and well now. =)

That is so rude of her to just ignore you like that. If she had a problem or went with someone else she could have at least said something to you. She is not being very mature or professional about this.

@DanieGirl80587 Yeah I agree, ignoring me is not the right approach to take for an adult in my opinion.

@LovingMyBabies Not at all. Little kids ignore. Most adults acknowledge the other.

That is very odd that she ignored you. I take it as a sign that she was not the right client. I am glad you are moving on to find another.

@LeaPea2417 Yeah I thought it was too. I guess she wasn't which is not what i wanted but it happens.

Maybe she found somebody else?! It's just weird though, with her glowing comments, and then nothing. If she did find somebody else to watch her kid, I'd bet that they'll have a hard time matching up with your care. Since she already know how a good babysitter you are, I bet that if anything's wrong with the other babysitter, or even anything in the service come up short, I bet she'll be calling you back. Hope you find a new client!

@bounce58 I was thinking the same thing but at least her letting me know would have been nice! Yeah, she just told me last week how glad she was that she found me and she trusts me so much with her daughter. I just don't understand it. Thank you, I hope I can find someone new as well. =)

People are weird. She may have something going on in her life. Maybe she lost her job or something. Please don't spend time worrying about it. She knows where you live and will get in touch if she wants you to watch her child. Maybe there are better things in store for you.

@akalinus Yeah, something could have came up but if she had time to read the message I am sure she could have said something to me... That's what bothers me the most I think. I know I need to let it go which is why I wrote this so I could move on from it. I hope there is something better coming because I really liked her and her daughter.

You are wise to move on since this person would probably leave you hanging all the time.

Its frustrating to wait for the unknown. Why can't people just respond to a prior commitment? It saves both the parties involved a lot of time and efforts.
