Mum gets slammed for outrageous list of requirements for last-minute babysitter

A mum has gone viral for her bizarre list of requirements for a last-minute babysitter.

When you suddenly need a sitter, you might call your closest relative or even ask a friend to look after your child if you really needed to go somewhere.

However, one mother decided that she wanted to have the best of the best of the best.

Move over Mrs Doubtfire because the anonymous woman is looking for someone with a master's degree and have five professional referees.


Not only that, but the successful applicant must not have any social media accounts, be a fantastic cook and cleaner, and be over 25 years old.

The anti-social media caveat was because: "I don't need my kids seeing that."

The mother was also looking for someone who doesn't drink, smoke or vape, and also doesn't have any tattoos or piercings.


If you manage to make it this far then you'll also have a background check done on you and you'll have to submit to a drug test.

We told you it was the best of the best of the best.

What's bizarre is that job goes from midday until 6pm and is Monday through to Friday.

Despite it being a 30-hour per week job, the babysitter will only be paid $200 for the five days of work.


You will also need your own transportation and run errands for the mother.

Now, you might be thinking this might be for one kid. No, no, no.

This enticing job advert is for four children who are aged between two and seven.

Imagine busting your backside for 30 hours a week to make sure four kids are happy, healthy, fed and clean for a measly $200.


It's unclear whether the mother managed to find someone who could fit the bill.

But what was clear was peoples' utter disbelief in the list of requirements.

Responding to the callout, one person who saw the ad said: "With these qualifications, they should pay at least $1000 bruh."

Another added: "She want a maid, nanny and chef."


A third wrote: "Tammy has standards and they're very high."
