It’s 2:35 and no sign of this kid’s parents. At what point would you consider him abandoned? I guess it would be after 24 hours or so. Come 3:00, I’m calling his family. That’s 5 hours. Even if they paid a babysitter $10 an hour (an unheard of price out here, I hear they go for MUCH more than that), she’d have to pay $50 plus food.
Again, it’s not that we don’t like the kid or he’s trouble or that Keb’s not enjoying the day, it’s just the absolute weirdness of it all. We have another family that’s been like this with us. We don’t “play date” with them anymore.
