I actually have pretty good hours i think there fair 8am till 9pm not that bad
How many days a week? Do you get a break during that time?

8am to 9 pm sounds like pretty long hours to me. There are strict regulations on the number of hours an au pair can work over here.

Re: Diet pills

English lesson of the day

I think there fair =

I think they are fair...OR
I think they're fair

Their = Owned by someone
Their choice in text messages was somewhat questionable.

There = Not owned by someone
There was a great looking handbag in the shop.

They're = They are
They are not quite as I expected for internet trolls.

Being "cute" and "forgetful" can only take you so far, it's certain life will give you some very harsh lessons in the future unless you change this. This is not about you as a personality. No one's perfect understandably but trying is better than a ignorance policy.
No amount of pretty can fix this much stupid - at least not on a long-term basis.

I hope you check out your rights as an au-pair, your hours seem pretty long to me.

My dear, WE are thinking of YOU. YOUR reputation and YOUR safety. The Internet doesn't forget. Either report your own post, ikon top right of your post, or write to one of these guys and gals (the five names at the top) and ask for it to be removed and say why.

I'm not 'my dear' to you. I'm, 'Yes, Granny; of course, Granny'.

And there was me thinking it was us, the old, grey-haired, pre-Computer, pre-Internet, pre-Facebook, pre-Twitter, non-digital aliens who were supposed to be the naïve ones.

And there's the difference - when I was 18 I was mad as a box of frogs, had bonkers ideas about the world and didn't care what I said. In those days there was just my family and friends to witness my naivety.

Nowadays you can publish it all over the internet, you have an audience of thousands and it never goes away.

Scary times.

"My dear im not really bothered about taking it down as its my profil pic anyone can see it at anytime"

Perhaps it's advertisement "open for business?"

8am - 9pm should be 8pm - 9am

This is actually the biggest problem. It's scary indeed and in this case two of her friends have their photos posted all over the Internet possibly without knowing about it.

My concern too. If one of them is really the OP, I'd be very pissed off if I were one of the other two.
What is she thinking???

Oh, wait, that is her problem, thinking...

I wouldn't go as far as "retarded." (This is an American insult I suggest replacing it!)

More like bored, paranoia driven individuals with a tendency to troll others perceived less intelligent than themselves. Lets get this right.

I did not say I was perfect check my previous post.

My advice to you; take it or leave it is to ignore any post from this point on. They are "baiting" you.

Red blobbies are a bit harsh people considering you spent x2 pages harassing her!

This thread feels weirdly similar to one started by an au-pair earlier in the year, I can't find it, but it was called something like "I don't think my hours are fair".
Do you mean the bit starting with this post in a very long thread?

I was thinking of this one...

I don't think my hours are fair, is there anything I can do?i

Different topic, but similar in a "Au-pair asks question, doesn't seem to take anyones advice, but keeps thread going" kinda way.

Can't be the same. The grammar and punctuation are too good over there.
