As if taking care of kids isn’t scary enough now there’s a damn poltergeist added to the mix?
Sooner or later parents are going to need a nanny to look after their kids at times and that’s why nannies are reached out to. Well one Scottish couple is looking for a nanny for their two kids, aged five and seven. Oh, and they are offering $84k. Seems like a good deal, right? That is if you’re also a ghost hunter.
If you accept this job you will get to live in a “lovely, spacious, historic property with spectacular views,” and you will also have your own room, bathroom and kitchen. Wow, sounds amazing. You also will also be haunted to death. But those views! So once the nanny prepares the kids breakfast and takes them to school she might find herself alone in a house that may or may not be haunted.
Here’s what the mom had to say about their house:
We have lived in our home for nearly 10 years. We were told it was ‘haunted’ when we bought it, but kept our minds open and decided to buy the house regardless. 5 nannies have left the role in the last year, each citing supernatural incidents as the reason, including strange noises, broken glass and furniture moving. This has obviously been a period of great upheaval for our children. We haven’t personally experienced any supernatural happenings, as they have been reported only while we’ve been out of the house, but we’re happy to pay above the asking rate, and feel it’s important to be as up-front as possible to find the right person.
Wait, five nannies have left the role already? Five?!
The mom also says that her and her husband work a lot so the nanny “will be at the property alone in sole charge.” Yeah, no thanks.
So while you might get paid nicely, you also might be taken over by a demon. Which pretty much sounds like any job these days.
