A seemingly simple babysitting job turned into a nightmare for one babysitter when a harmless juice box wasn’t what it seemed to be. This unexpected incident will leave you shocked and wondering what you might have done in the same situation. Here’s the full scoop.
Easy Babysitting Gig
When they arrived at the house, everything seemed pretty easy.
The kid, around 8 years old, was sitting quietly with their iPad.
The babysitter thought, “This will be a piece of cake!” But boy, was she mistaken!
The innocent child asked for some juice, so the babysitter went straight to the fridge.
Fridge Was Jam Packed With Food
It was mostly filled with food, but she found a little juice box of orange juice tucked away in the corner.
All Seemed Well
Without thinking twice, she took a sip.
It tasted just like orange juice. Convinced it was safe, she gave it to the kid.
Things Got Weird and Off-Balance
But then, things got weird.
The child started stumbling around and seemed off-balance.
Was the Child Hurt?
Worried, the babysitter hurried to their side, asking if they were hurt. Luckily, the child said no.
The Kid’s Breath Smelt Normal, What Was the Explanation?
The babysitter even checked their breath, which smelled normal.
It left them completely confused.
The Child Passed Out and Was Put To Bed
Suddenly, the kid started giggling uncontrollably and ended up passing out on the couch.
Panicked yet quick on their feet, the babysitter carefully moved the child to their bed for safety.
The Orange Juice Wasn’t Actually Pure Orange!
Curiosity got the best of them, and they checked the label on the juice box.
And that’s when they made a shocking discovery: the so-called “Orange Juice” actually contained 10% alcohol
Boozy Juice Box!
Can you believe it? They had accidentally gotten an 8-year-old kid drunk!
Immediate Confession to Mom
When the mum came back home (with the child partly sobered up), the babysitter wasted no time in admitting their mistake.
Ah Well, Easy Mistake to Make
To their surprise, the mom took full blame, saying it was her fault for not labeling or doing anything with that juice box.
Mom Paid the Full Amount
She brushed it off as a simple oversight and even paid the babysitter as promised.
The Babysitter Still Feels Guilty
But despite her understanding, the babysitter couldn’t help feeling guilty for unknowingly getting a child intoxicated.
You Didn’t Try to Cover Up Your Mistake
Now, she has taken to Reddit to see if she should still feel guilty for her mistake, and the Reddit community has offered their support.
Redditors praised the babysitter for her follow-up actions, “I think it’s good that you recognized your mistake and actively tried to help and care for this kid even before realizing he was drunk.”
You Did the Right Thing
Another was just as impressed, “You did the right thing by fessing up to both the mistake and getting the child drunk. Most babysitters would just deny everything that happened or make up some foolproof lie.”
