BABYSITTERS have shared the weird and wonderful things they’ve found while in other people’s houses.
As a teenager looking after local kids was a common way to earn a bit of cash, but sometimes they ended up with more than they bargained for.
From finding sex toys to drugs, babysitters have revealed the secrets they’ve uncovered on Reddit.
One girl said: “This family I babysat for had a locked room in their basement that, when I opened it one time out of curiosity, had a LOT of Nazi stuff in it.”
And this situation turned out rather well, with another childminder revealing: “I did dog-sit for a woman and her husband for a while.
“She gave me a tour of the house the first time I went over there and there was a room in the back of the house that was filled with dildos and other sex toys.
Turns out the small town had a swingers club
“She sold them as a side hustle and wanted me to know they were there in case I was uncomfortable.
“They paid me well and left a great review on the site I was using. I wish they never moved lol I loved their dog.”
This girl revealed she used to babysit from around 13 to 15, and was a popular choice with parents as she worked in the daycare centre.
She said: “Often I would have kids from two or three different families at once.
“I didn't care I got triple the pay for having three different groups of kids.
“I was recently told why I always had groups of kids like that.
“Turns out the small town had a swingers club and I was the go to baby sitter for their different group.”
Another girl also used to look after two local kids when she was 14 – and ended up finding a secret stash.
She said: “One night, for whatever reason, I looked behind the couch and saw a bunch of magazines.
“I collected them, thinking they’d been dropped behind there by accident by the kids I babysat.
There was a room in the back of the house that was filled with dildos and other sex toys
“It was a HUGE stash of Penhouse and Playboy magazines and I had to quickly re-hide them before the kids saw them.”
More sex toy horror from this babysitter, who simply said: "The kid found her mom's vibrator and put it in her mouth."
Meanwhile this babysitter got bored one night and decided to do a bit of snooping around – which she later regretted.
She said the kids, aged three and five, had “the best temperament” and the mum was kind.
But one night she made a shocking discovery, saying: “I decided to snoop cause I was 15 and bored.
"I found her bathroom COVERED in weed and weed products as well as a giant vibrator in her drawer.
“No judging from me, I was just insanely surprised lol. She had the two biggest bongs I’ve ever seen.”
Aside from sex toys, porn and drugs, there can be far more disturbing things – the children themselves.
The kid found her mom's vibrator and put it in her mouth
One babysitter would look after the kids of a family who was “super successful” and “big in the art world”.
While they had “mansions and fancy cars”, she revealed the children were “weird”.
She said: “Specifically the older girl (who was about 8) showed me a jar of baby mice that she had cut out of a pregnant mouse’s stomach suspended in formaldehyde sitting on the window sill in the kitchen.
“Something about that just did not sit right, and that was the last time I babysat for them.”
And this babysitter was put in an awkward position after witnessing the mum frequently cheating – and paid her extra to keep quiet.
She said: “[The] Mom would get all dolled up, leave her wedding ring on the kitchen counter, and come home very late, clearly drunk, and sometimes brought men home with her that she introduced as her ‘friends’."
And this mum returned from holiday to find her parents had updated her drab living room for £50.
Plus shoppers are raving about blinds from Wilko which they say can fit any window.
Meanwhile, this mum transformed her "gross" sofas from a dull brown to a vibrant design using £26 eBay covers.
