Ok so she sent me a few more messages about how they just assumed I knew what they needed and didn't think they needed to spell it out for me! Saying that they do not know how they are expected to pay for childcare that they hadn't budgeted for as they was relying on me to provide it. And I shouldn't of said I could help if I wasn't willing to do so.

I've not replied to any messages

She clearly thinks you have some superhuman mind reading power? You were supposed to just 'know' about all these arrangements? Maybe she thinks you sent a message through the power of thought agreeing to all these arrangements and that's why she's so shocked and perplexed now?
Silly OP you must have had your super power switch turned to 'off'
you must remember to keep it switched on incase Batshit Bertha needs a favour.

I bet she posts really annoying memes on Facebook like "it takes a village to raise a child"

You should text back once more and say 'I don't know how much clearer I need to be, you made a very casual request for me to cover one Monday and you never followed that up with any definite confirmation, you left me to do that. How could you possibly think you had confirmed 6 weeks worth of free childcare with me?'

This. Absolutely. It's polite but it's clear.

Emily report away then. Very bad form to troll hunt on a thread.

Just ignore her and blocke her now. If she comes over to you at school ranting say very loudly and clearly

"Go away! Any more abuse from you and I will go to the headmaster and the police and pass on the screenshots of the abusive texts that you have sent me. I do not want any further form of contact with you, you are clearly no friend. Leave me alone!"

I kinda hope she does turn up just so the OP and her husband can confront her batshit cheek.

JigglyTuff I think it works more often than not - they only way to deal is to not engage from the outset, which is quite tough for many reasons

  • females are often brought up to 'be nice' and are therefore more vulnerable to it, social convention, emotional manipulation and also people are not above using their very own children as a manipulation tactic.


So people like this, just keep on going until they find a victim, then that victim is kind of trapped.

7.00 now. All thinking of you. Hope it goes your way.

As teachers we were put upon once or twice but nothing at all like this.

It was just for odd days when other things had fallen through.

When we needed pre and after school care ( as we didn't work 9-3.15!) we paid our way.
