John Cena is one of the most popular athletes and actors in the world, thanks to his time in the WWE and roles in movies such as Trainwreck, Daddy’s Home, and Sisters. However, it seems that there’s a mystery surrounding his Liquid Blue Metallic Ford GT that people just don’t want to hold onto. How is it up for auction yet again?!
Breaking The Rules
First of all, John Cena was only sold this Ford GT back in 2017, under special rules set out by Ford themselves. The $500,000 car was sold to Cena in the promise that he would keep hold of it for at least 24 months.
A month after taking in the new GT, however, John Cena decided that he didn’t want it anymore. The wrestler and actor decided to part ways with his car to a Ford superfan for an eye-watering $1.54 million. Ford, as you’d imagine, were not happy.
Time To Move On
Ford actually decided to sue John Cena for his breach of contract, and they reached a settlement out of court. However, the story is far from over.
The Ford superfan a 78-year-old farmer from California, only held onto the car for eight months before he decided he wanted to sell it too. The Ford GT went to a Russo & Steele auction in August 2018, where it sold for an impressive $1.7 million. There’s profit in that!
Again And Again
The third owner only kept hold of the Ford GT for one month before he decided it was time to let it go. It was sold in September 2018 for $1.32 million – making a loss for owner number three who only drove it for a total of 9 months.
It’s now been five months since the fourth owner got their hands on the stunning Ford GT, and it’s back up for auction once again. The auction will take place in May 2019, and who knows how much it will sell for this time.
It seems as though John Cena’s Ford GT is a real hot potato in the automobile world. Nobody seems to know why, either! Only time will tell what it sells for in May.
40+ Times Entitled Parents Thought the World Revolved Around Them
Most parents have to work to make ends meet. This means that they have to find someone to take care of their kids while they are working. That is why many people look for babysitters. Unfortunately, sometimes these parents seem to be a little entitled when they offer the job to potentials. Here are some people who share the signs of privilege that often go unnoticed when it comes to finding child care for kids.
Finding a babysitter that will meet all of your criteria is hard. Especially when that criterion has a laundry list of items to be checked off. This person seems to think that someone that has all of this is worth only $75 a week.
Despite the fact that that means that they are making just about a dollar an hour, there is so much more wrong with this job posting that we don’t even know where to begin. We hope this got reported!
Depending on what the babysitter has to put up with may depend on the price tag they stick on their services. This parent had an emergency and needed a babysitter quickly but it seems like they didn’t quantify what that would cost.
We can’t believe the audacity this person then had to tell the babysitter to be grateful after offering them $5 less than their normal rate. We guess parents can be scammers too…
Being a single mom and going to school at the same time is a difficult feat. That means that you may have to rely on outside sources to ensure your kids are properly monitored. If you’re lucky, you find someone who will do it for free.
But this girl, with all her entitlement, seems to think that because this gentleman offered to do her a favor that she should get some child support from him even though the kid is not his. We’re very confused by this one!
Wanting it All
Parents want to make sure that their kids are being watched by people that they trust. That means that typically they have a laundry list of things that they do and don’t want to have when it comes to a babysitter.
This person, though, seems to want a babysitter that meets very strenuous criteria. The last one on the list definitely confuses us the most. What do you guys think?
Don’t Be Lazy
Even if you’re not a parent, you know that taking care of kids is quite a chore. You often end up with no time for yourself and sometimes even very little sleep.
so it’s no wonder that this military wife was looking for some sort of babysitter to help give her a few hours of peace and quiet. But in order to get some help, all she had to do was fill out some forms, and that seemed to be just a little too much work for her.
I’m Not a Nanny
There is a distinct difference between a babysitter and a nanny. Nannies usually live with the family and take care of the children pretty much 24/7, whereas a babysitter usually just comes over for a few hours.
It seems that these parents were actually looking for a nanny but for babysitter prices. Also, since when is having one day off every two weeks a thing? Sounds like a job from hell. No, thank you, sir!
Not Worth It
There are some babysitters who go above and beyond and will do extra things for the family. Typically this is because the family pays well, and they have a good relationship. But asking for extra when you haven’t even hired them yet seems a little much.
Also, paying somebody $3o per week for 40 hours of work sounds straight-up illegal to us. It upsets us to think that there are people out there who really don’t value other’s time and work.
The Backup Babysitter
One of the ways many parents find babysitters nowadays is via social media groups. There are many of them available where you can go and post what you’re looking for and wait for someone to take you up on your offer.
When you use these, though, you have to expect people to comment on them, as that is what social media is about. Also, assuming that no one will have an issue with outlandish requirements is just crazy.
Show Me the Evidence
The good thing about technology nowadays is that there is always a trail and a way to prove when things were said. For this person who was looking for a babysitter, they thought they could get away with not paying their babysitter but the proof was in the texts.
But even still, the horrid parent thought that ice cream and “a day of fun” was the equivalent to a payment of $128. Then this person proceeded to block the babysitter as a way of ignoring their debt.
Seems Like a Lot
When you’re babysitting, there are a lot of downtime moments, especially when the kids are busy or taking a nap. So this advertisement for a babysitter not only has a lot of requirements that are a little outlandish but also restrictions on what the babysitter can do while there.
How can this person tell the babysitter that they have to provide food, on top of the fact that they won’t be able to study or watch YouTube while there? That just seems crazy and unfair.
Less Than Minimum Wage
Gone are the days where kids would babysit for practically nothing. In fact, even high schoolers charge more than minimum wage, and that’s saying something. So knowing this, any parent should understand and value their babysitter’s time and pay them accordingly.
But this person isn’t even willing to pay $4 an hour, and they require a pick-up and drop-off. This seems like they were asking a lot for practically nothing.
We Hear Crickets
It’s hard to get errands done when you have a sick baby and it can also be hard to find a babysitter willing to help out during this time, especially when that sickness happens to be pretty contagious.
So, as a parent, if you ever find yourself in this position, the best option would be to reach out to your family. The person who left a comment was totally right, while the poster needs to rethink the meaning of common courtesy.
When you are making an advertisement for a job, it is not very smart to talk about the previous person who held the position, especially in this situation where the last babysitter stopped texting them back.
This is an indication to the babysitters out there that maybe there were some issues with the environment or the pay. Also, once you look at how much they’re paying, it’s pretty clear that it had to do with the salary.
It seems that when people are making their job postings for their babysitter gigs, they are writing about a lump sum salary. They may be doing this because it looks better when you first see it, but once you do the math, you’ll realize just how badly they are underpaying.
Anyone looking to take this person up on their offer would have to be willing to work for $2.50 an hour. This parent clearly is hoping that no one does the math!
We can see that this advert was written under the “help wanted” section but anybody who agrees to these terms will soon be screaming the word “help.” Yet again, someone is trying to underpay a babysitter to take care of three kids at late hours.
This seems like the parent feels that the job is important but not important enough to pay someone fairly to take care of their kids. Also, the whole state-approved background requirement also rubs us up the wrong way!
A Deal Breaker
No matter what job you do, when you do it, you expect to get paid for it. This is especially true when you’ve already agreed upon a wage. Sure every now and then, especially in positions like babysitting, there may be a time where your employer has to ask for an extension.
But you have to be careful because otherwise, you may end up like this babysitter who clearly is dealing with someone who feels entitled and that they don’t need to pay their debts.
Parents to human children are not the only ones that require a bit of babysitting. For those who consider their pets to be their children like this person does with their cat, they sometimes need someone to watch over their furry friends.
Of course, just like with a human child, this person may want to be compensated for their time. However, this person feels the fact that they allow them to bring their cat with them negates the need for payment…
How entitled are you that you feel it necessary to go on social media and rant about how your current babysitter? If you’re having problems paying them and your bills, then maybe you need to just focus on trying to pay your bills.
It is not the babysitter’s fault that you are not making enough money, and so you should probably stop complaining and just look for someone that might be willing to help you for what you’re willing to pay.
We can understand why a hard-working couple who has a young child might want to look for someone dependent and reliable. But also, when you are looking for someone who will be a live-in nanny, you need to consider their needs too.
This couple seems to have a lot of requirements when it comes to attendance, and yet they’re still not willing to pay a decent salary. On top of that, the no flakey thing made us giggle.
Wrong Job Description
Taking care of children and a home is not something that requires a tertiary education. It may require a lot of hard work and dedication, but you definitely don’t need a college education to be able to do the job right.
That is unless you are applying to this job which these parents have decided is a necessity, and yet they’re only willing to pay $12.00 an hour. After reading this job description, it sounds like they’re looking for a personal assistant, more so than a babysitter.
Use What You Have
It seems that this parent is looking for someone that is a little more convenient than her friends that live further away. This is very understandable, but if you’re looking for someone close at hand, you should still pay them well.
It is understandable if the woman can’t afford it, but then again, if she already has people that will work for the price she’s willing to offer, then why start this thread at all?
This person is looking for someone to work five days a week with 11.5-hour shifts, yet they’re only willing to pay $120 per week. This seems like somewhat of a scam to us.
This homeowner also happens to live in Hawaii, which means they have more than enough money to pay sufficiently as it is super expensive to live on these islands. It just goes to show how selfish people are.
Long Term Offer
One of the times of year that most parents need extra help is during the summer. This is because the kids don’t go to school and of course the parents still have to work. Typically this break lasts some 10 weeks.
This parent seems to think that she will be able to find someone who will care for her child for that time for under $1,000. That would mean that the babysitter would be making $100 a week, and unless this person is a kid, that will not be enough.
When you are looking for someone to take care of your child, we fully understand being detailed and outlining everything you need in your babysitter/nanny.
But expecting them to be degreed, chefs, animal lovers and Microsoft Word proficient, sounds like a stretch. Also, someone with all these capabilities probably wouldn’t want to work for as little as $13 an hour.
Must Be a Prank
We all know that some people look to have their babysitter or nanny live with them. It makes things easier when it comes to taking care of the children. But typically, these people don’t have to pay a lot or anything at all when it comes to renting.
This person thinks that it’s OK to ask someone to pay $1,500 a month for half a year and babysit their kids as well. Are we being pranked or something?
You Get What You Pay For
No matter what the position is, if you pay someone unreasonable wages, you get unreasonable work standards. For the previous babysitter, $20 a day was just not enough to get her up off the couch.
In fairness, we think that this would probably be the reaction of most babysitters. So the fact that this person feels that they can still offer the same amount to others seems a little entitled.
Please Be Reasonable
We think that if you really want a reasonable babysitter, you probably should offer a fair wage. You can’t expect to pay crumbs in payment and still reap all the benefits.
Speaking of crumbs, this person wants someone to watch their kids during the summer and then after school, yet they’re only willing to pay $30 a day. We know that we sound like a broken record here but we’ll continue until people develop some common sense.
Babysit My House
Sitters don’t only have to be babysitters, housesitters are popular too. Yet, because it doesn’t require as much work as caring for children or pets, it generally means that the pay is pretty bad.
Even though the sitter will get to Netflix and chill it up, $10 for 2.5 hours of work still doesn’t seem like a fair trade to us. Most people wouldn’t get off their own couch for $4 an hour.
You Must Be Joking
Sometimes when we read through these crazy requirements we actually think that these posts are all one big joke. But upon closer analysis, we realize these are legitimate and posted on real babysitting sites.
Who in their right mind with a college degree will want to babysit from 4:30 am and do all the work of a nanny for just $12 an hour. The real kicker here was the CPR certification, a funny joke indeed!
Let the Argument Begin
Everybody has an opinion when it comes to almost everything. For this young person, though, her requirements for babysitting sparked controversy amongst parents in this Facebook group. Money tends to be the match that lights the fire!
It seems that these parents felt that she was entitled about asking for a fair wage. But some would say it’s actually the other way round and we’re on board with that argument. Who’s with us?
It’s hard to put a price on the safety of your kids. You’d expect parents to pay top dollar but as we’ve realized from these posts, that is not usually the case. People are happy to find bargain babysitters even if that means receiving a bargain service.
If we were a babysitter looking for a job and came across this post offering $20 per day to take care of three little ones, we’d keep scrolling without a touch of hesitation.
Don’t Underestimate Others
While babysitting to some is a side gig, to others, it is a full-time job. So people shouldn’t underestimate this service unless they’ve walked in the shoes of a babysitter.
On top of that, this person doesn’t have to go out to movies and restaurants but taking care of their young kids, is a must. Maybe this person should set their priorities straight before writing such an entitled post.
All Work, No Pay
You’ve probably heard the proverb “all work and no play makes Jake a dull boy.” We’ve decided to adapt it to “all work and no pay” based on this parent’s outrageous requirements.
All Work, No PayThe fact this person is looking for someone to do the work of a parent for $5-$10 a day is actually infuriating. For this price, they should be looking at the local middle schoolers in their neighborhood.
Providing the Necessities
This parent seems to think by providing necessities that they should already have in the house for their children, they are very giving. If we were to look up the definition of entitlement, such a scenario should come up.
Of course, you’re going to supply the food, diapers, wipes, and clothes for your children. It’s not a babysitter’s job to do this so don’t try to make yourself good by adding it in to distract others from the bad pay you’re offering!
In any other profession, when you are an on-call person, you tend to get paid extra because you have to be ready at a moment’s notice. However, as per usual, this parent wanted to reap all the benefits without the added compensation.
These posts are making us feel like parents are the enemy. Like, come on guys, you were youngsters trying to make an earnest living once — so remember that and pay others fairly!
Wait for It
When you first start reading this job advertisement for a house sitter, all is going well. Until you realize that this person expects you to pay them to watch their house. And it gets better…
On top of that, you’re required to feed their cat twice a day, so you’re actually paying them to do work. It doesn’t seem like quite a good deal now, does it? If you came across a post like this, we’d suggest that you just keep scrolling, folks.
Don’t Leave Your Infant
While for once, the pay is actually good here, we have a different issue with the post. Why does this person need to leave their infant with a stranger while they gallivant off on vacation?
Surely the new parents would feel safer leaving the toddler with relatives? Also, “a few dates” with a person wouldn’t be enough to truly know if they’re good samaritans or not. Don’t you agree?
Passive Aggressive Much?
Generally speaking, part-time nannies are just there to take care of the kids and maybe do a few extras like making dinner and bathing the children. Expecting them to do all the household chores sounds a little unreasonable to us but at least the pay is good.
However, this person is being very demanding when it comes to their downtime and requires their nanny to be busy at all times. To the parent who wrote this – get off your high horse and live a little.
There’s a Catch
This advertisement seems like a decent opportunity for someone who is looking to save a little money. However, the advertisement looks like they’re paying the nanny $450, but when you actually read it is something altogether different.
In fact, for you to stay in their home, babysit the kids, clean, and cook, you’re going to have to pay them $450 a month for utilities. So this isn’t really a job that offers a free room.
Looking for a Freebie
Everything is a ton better when you can get it for free. There are very few things, though, in life that are free, and that includes child care. In fact, childcare is one of the biggest expenses when it comes to being a parent.
So, where we can kind of understand how this person is feeling, it still seems a little entitled to want someone to watch over your kids for absolutely no cost. Come on, you greedy people!
Less Is More
Some parents are so busy or have so many children that they need consistent full-time help. This often leads to them offering live-in accommodation, and with this added perk comes a lot more rules and guidelines.
But still, this person seems to be very demanding and a little entitled when it comes to expectations of the living accommodations. This seems like the type of family that would have a secret camera installed in the kid’s room to spy on you…
How Far Is Too Far?
The comic sans font notwithstanding, this advertisement for a babysitter is very polite and fun. They’re even offering a great wage, but then when you get to the bottom, it has a funny little disclaimer.
This person wants you to Google how far you are from them to make sure you are willing to travel the distance. This seems like a strange request, but hey, at least they’re trying to be considerate. But it also comes off being a little entitled as well!
The Bare Minimum
When someone is looking for a babysitter and asks another person who already has a job, it should be expected that you have to at least pay them what they would make for the time they are losing.
But apparently, these parents didn’t think the fact that this person was losing time as a freelancer was even worth half of what they typically make an hour. How they treated her after that was just messed up. They’re the selfish and childish ones!
Above and Beyond
It’s always nice when someone goes above and beyond to help you but unfortunately, there are those in life who will take advantage of this kindness, and such was the case here.
This father thought it was okay to ask this woman who is already babysitting his kids out of the kindness of her heart, for an additional favor. We hope she told him to get lost after this and never helped out again!
How Dare You
When you’re asking a babysitter to handle more than one kid, there should be a spike in the pay that is offered. This is even more so when it comes to kids that are young as they will require extra supervision.
The fact that this person is only willing to spend $40- $50 every week seems like they really don’t understand what goes into taking care of kids. They should, however, because they are parents!
