To make a long story short, I was doing some work for a client that required me to be at their home for a few hours.
Client: I’m sorry I was unable to tell you this until now, but I just realized I have a meeting I have to go to now. I’ll be back in an hour, will that be okay?
Me: Sure, I won’t be done for about another two hours anyway.
The client left, and about half an hour later, I heard a strange sound coming from down the hall. Normally, I don’t wander around the client’s house, but the noise didn’t sound like an appliance. I went down the hall and into the room. There was a baby that had just woken up and was crying. I was confused and, finding a bottle next to the crib, gave it the bottle. My client returned half an hour later.
Client: Hey, did you finish yet?
Me: Er, almost – did you know you left a baby unattended in your house for the last hour?
Client: Of course! I didn’t tell you because I didn’t want to scare you with having to watch him.
She knew I’m a father of three.
