A Man Couldn’t Babysit His Brother’s Kids Because He Had to Work, but The Brother Dumped Them at The Man’s Office Anyway, so He Called the Police

A man’s brother had asked him to watch over his kids, but the man refused because he had to work. The brother ended up dropping the children off at his office and, in anger, the man called the police – was he in the wrong?

The man explained, “He used to have babysitters but ever since he met his new girlfriend he stopped hiring any help because his girlfriend claimed that she wanted the kids to warm up to and get used to her as the only woman in their life.”

The brother started asking him to watch over the kids when he had plans. The man added, “I’d help if I’m able but I work a demanding job and need to cover full time. He for whatever reason refuses to acknowledge that.”

One day, the brother wanted to go out for lunch with his girlfriend and her friends. The brother asked the man to look after the kids but he said no because had to go to work. The brother begged him to take the day off but he refused.

At 11am, his co-worker came into the office, followed by the man’s two nephews. He explained, “I was flabbergasted. He told me my brother dropped them off so they could stay with me.”

He explained, “I was in a state of disbelief but also furious. I felt stuck and terrified my boss would see this and I would get in trouble. I couldn’t even take time off because of how busy I was.”

The man was frustrated and decided to call the police to explain what had happened. They got in touch with the brother who was made to pick up his kids and had to spend a few hours speaking to the authorities about the situation.

In the evening, his brother called him and shouted at him, saying that he ruined his lunch plans and got him in trouble with the police. He added, “He said that I could’ve had the kids with me for a couple of hours or even took them home and took the rest of the day off.”

Since this happened the brothers haven’t spoken. He explained, “We haven’t been speaking but his girlfriend is constantly shaming me for what I’d done saying she treats the kids better than I do and that I should be ashamed for this.”

Was he wrong to call the police? Could he have handled the situation differently?

He Turned to the Internet for Advice

Most people were on his side. One person commented, “If he didn’t arrange it with you beforehand with both of you consenting to it, it’s abandonment. He expected you to make your stuff work around his social life, which you didn’t have the leeway for.”

Another User Shared Their Opinion

“You were in danger of being fired because of this stupid stunt. And your brother wanted to go out to lunch with his girlfriend? If he or a loved one was in a serious accident, then maybe dropping off the kids could be justified.”

Someone Else Commented

“Your brother’s kids should be first in his life, not the new girlfriend. You need to talk to him about why his new girlfriend thinks his own kids shouldn’t be around. Also, talk to him about where he thinks the relationship is heading because the longer he stays, the more controlling she’s going to be.”

Another Shared Their Perspective

“Your brother and his entitlement are astounding. He has no respect for you or your job. He is only concerned about making his girlfriend happy. The kids are likely suffering because of his misguided priorities. Regardless, you are not an “on call” babysitter.”
