If your desperate for anything, maybe the money involved in babysitting won’ t be so bad?

You say, “I’m really sorry, but I can’t.”  I am asked to babysit all the time, and since I HATE babysitting, I always say no.  “I’m sorry, but I have plans,” works, too, but it’s a lie most of the time…  

OR, if you don’t mind doing a few days, you could say, “I can watch him on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I will be getting a new job soon.”  

OR…find a new job RIGHT NOW!  It’s, like, easy right?  ugh.

Tell her finding a new job is now your full time job and you really need to devote your time to that. They may be thinking they’re helping you out.

What happens if you land an interview… you can’t just drop the babysitting, she won’t have a back-up plan….. so I would say no, just because of that.
