Some People

There is a for sale list here in Killeen and some of the things people want or are looking for just never cease to amaze me. Here's a posting from today:

I need a baby sitter for a 3 yr old from 7 am - 4:30 pm. every day of
the week. diapers and wipes provided. and some one to pick up a 6 yr
old from school. the clarks one in com 2. At 3:15 and keep him till
4:30. I am only able to pay $200 a month. Please Let me KNow.

So for 9.5 hours a day, five days a week and then 1.5 hours a day 5 days a week for the older child you want to pay $200 a month? Can't imagine that anyone that does daycare and provides rates like those is going to be very reliable. Not to mention why not go through the daycare on post or through a FCC provider or something. How do you know what you are getting? Random advertising on a for sale list is how you are going to find someone to leave your precious children with?

It's beyond me. At least this person can spell better than a lot of then. I hate to read "I have the following items for selled".

$200 a month is insane! Does CDC/FCC still use that sliding scale so you pay on rank? I give them credit for at least trying because you never know who might really need the money BUT you get what you pay for and haven't there been several young kids die in the area under the care of a sitter?

I am surprised at what I see for sale or "wanted" in the papers here on post. I also find it funny that the people who do our ads spell things the way that they are turned in regardless of spelling, punctuation or even whether or not it makes sense.
