6. The Nanny Who Bailed
I know someone who works full time, has a small baby, and had her beloved babysitter up and quit, with nary an explanation. It’s been months, but she still seems to be shaken up by the experience. And why not? It’s unsettling when people disappear without giving a reason—the cleaning lady, the math tutor, the every-Friday-for-two-months date. Sure, we all know everyone has a complicated life. And yet someone you trusted chose something else over you. It stings. Of course it does. But you can survive it.
