In the event you assume your job is unhealthy, spare a thought for the poor sod who ended up working right here.
Actress Hollis Jane Andrews shared a job description for a nanny job she utilized for again in 2013… and yikes.
The 2 web page doc listed all the necessities for a “Magical Nanny/Housekeeper”, and fairly frankly, one would want superpowered endurance to even make it by studying the checklist of calls for.
“In 2013, I interviewed with an (unbeknownst to me on the time) Scientologist household to be their nanny,” Andrews wrote. “They gave this positively BONKERS checklist of tasks and now I give it to all of you.”
The tweet rapidly went viral, as Twitter started working selecting out their favourite from the oh-so-many pink flags.
“The primary focus is to make sure their primary rudiments* are stored in, in order that they aren’t crying/upsetting the remainder of the home,” the employer instructed (explaining within the footnotes that “rudiments” meant “sleep, meals and watered”).
“If I’m coaching I do not need to hear crying or tantrums or headbutting,” they warned. “In the event that they harm themselves, preserve quiet, apply Dianetics & help tech at all times.”
“There’s to be NO films, while beneath your care, please flip you telephone OFF while at work.”
What adopted was a strictly regimented timetable of the kids’s day, which included taking them for a two hour run at 9 AM. “Get them to run, throw rocks and RUN with them, do not cease them working ever.”

Approaching lunch, Twitter could not resolve if it was extra offended by the very fact the youngsters had been compelled to brush their enamel (once more) beforehand, or that lunch consisted of “steak and ketchup”.

“In the event you can grasp all of this, then we’ve a contented home,” it threatened.
“NO PHONES OF YOUR OWN AT ALL DURING WORK HOURS” it roared in its finale. “YOU NEED TO BE FIT FOR THESE BOYS!”
Twitter customers weren’t fully satisfied the job was taking care of kids, with many speculating Sprint and Max had been truly canines, or even perhaps goats. Some prayed that they had been cats, and that the stinking poo poo bin was in truth a litter tray.
However the single most offending side of all the doc appeared to the overuse — or certainly simply use — of the phrase “while”.
Higher nonetheless within the feedback, Andrews revealed the wage for the place was… $13 per hour.
“Granted that was eight years in the past BUT STILL,” she wrote. “In case it wasn’t clear, I did NOT take the job the minute I noticed the phrase ‘dianetics’.”
