Glad and Mad

One of my friends had a knock on the door recently; it was a one of the neighbours wondering if my friend's 15 year-old daughter would be interested in babysitting a few days a week for the summer. Friend said she thought that would be great, as school will be finished in a few weeks, and her daughter had talked about working a bit through the holidays.

This was about a week after my friend had given her daughter the speech about how she was going to have to go out and, you know, actually look for a job; no one was going to come knocking on her door and just offer her one.

She's delighed her daughter has a job for the summer, but would rather she had obtained it in a manner that did not prove her mother wrong.
