Or just lazy?

MamaGLovesMe Fri 01-Aug-08 20:56:44

?

KatyMac Fri 01-Aug-08 20:57:26

Well I don't want to talk about work now

But is that unfair?

MamaGLovesMe Fri 01-Aug-08 21:00:17

No,

No one should answer the phone when they don't want to.

LoveMyGirls Fri 01-Aug-08 21:03:04

No it's friday night unless answering it would make you feel better then why would you?

AvenaLife Fri 01-Aug-08 21:06:37

it could be urgent.

KatyMac Fri 01-Aug-08 21:08:13

Urgent?

No message, no text, no email

Not sure how a childminder would deal with urgent at 9pm on a Friday?

I thought you meant in the morning and assumed you started at nine, so I thought you were being slightly unreasonable. This is Friday night and YANBU at all! Although I have to say nosiness curiosity would get the better of me!

Someone could be ill and they are trying to tell you?????? hmm

KatyMac Fri 01-Aug-08 21:11:06

& what could I do?
Phone 999 for them?

AvenaLife Fri 01-Aug-08 21:12:53

I don't know. Neither do you though. Maybe they are trying to notify you of an infectious disese? Or ruin your weekend?

KatyMac Fri 01-Aug-08 21:14:22

Well they didn't leave a message - so I won't can't worry about it

StealthPolarBear Fri 01-Aug-08 21:14:58

Katy could be out / in bed.
Unless she thinks it might be worth her while to take the call I think she should leave it. If it was urgent they would ahve left an answerphone message

missorinoco Fri 01-Aug-08 21:15:50

Agree with stealth. Each time curiosity gets the better of me i regret it though.

If something had happened to a child cared by you, might they try and get in touch to let you know? If it was something bad, they might not want to leave a message.

Or it may be the lady who thought she didn't need childcare for Monday, phoning to let you know that she needs to go into work afterall?

Monkeytrousers Fri 01-Aug-08 21:18:24

just to clarify, anything you don't do is passive and lazy grin

KatyMac Fri 01-Aug-08 21:19:33

Cool

I'm Passive

I'm also lazy

& perhaps slightly drunk

I am having fun

KatyMac Fri 01-Aug-08 21:26:24

I guess I should have answered & explained I don't take work calls on Friday evenings

LoveMyGirls Fri 01-Aug-08 21:30:09

no you shouldnt dont worry, you worry too much.

AvenaLife Fri 01-Aug-08 21:30:40

My friend's self employed, she used to give her clients her mobile phone number until one phoned her. At 3am! She doesn't give it out any more.

KatyMac Fri 01-Aug-08 21:35:09

My Dad had a person apply for a job at 11.35 on a Sunday night

The chap didn't get the job

AvenaLife Fri 01-Aug-08 21:36:44

Doh! I think that some people just loose sense of time.

saz73 Fri 01-Aug-08 22:07:04

I saw someone tonight for childminding at 7.30pm and was here for over an hour and she signed contracts, paid deposit and month in advance. My vacancy was only advertised for less than 24 hours.

KatyMac Fri 01-Aug-08 22:08:49

That would be different

Congratulations

I don't now what mine was but I got a voicemail later & it was heavy breathing hmm
