Anonymous Daycare Provider's 'Secret' Confession Has The Internet Enraged ๐Ÿ˜ก


I can't imagine a harder job than childcare.

I have a niece and nephew whom I adore, but the minute they show even the slightest sign of disgruntlement, I'm like "OKAY HERE YOU GO HERE'S MOMMY BYE" because I cannot handle the stress. So managing that all day, without a parent on hand to calm the storm, is a job that is certainly not for the faint of heart--and that before you get to all the potential pitfalls of, like, having to keep someone else's kid alive all day. And on top of that, childcare workers are nearly always egregiously underpaid!

And as if that weren't bad enough, there's dealing with parents, who nowadays often behave as if they gave birth to the newborn Messiah, and woe betide anyone who disagrees.

It has to suck. But one childcare worker seems to have taken his/her vitriol to a new level that is... quite frankly ghastly.

PostSecret is an online community that began as a very popular early 2000s blog-turned-book where people can anonymously send in their secrets on a postcard and have them published. And recently, a childcare worker's secret, posted to PostSecret's Facebook page, has many people feeling outraged and disturbed--and understandably so.

"How you treat ME is how your child is treated," the post says. Which is, frankly, a sick thing to say, because, you know, CHILDREN ARE NOT IN CONTROL OF THEIR PARENTS' BEHAVIOR FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.

Understandably, the internet blew up in horror:




Many pointed out the fact that if the parents are awful to a childcare worker, they may well be awful to the child as well--and may need the worker's protection:



Though one person did point out that it is important to treat childcare workers with respect:


Which, fair enough. But if you're so frustrated with your job that your response is to mirror bad behavior onto a child... perhaps you're in the wrong profession? Just a thought!

Times change, and if you don't change with them you're likely to get left behind. That simple piece of wisdom applies to pretty much everything - up to and including the job market. It seems like a lot of older didn't get that memo, though.

Reddit user u/GeekyKirby wanted to get something for their boyfriend for his birthday, but he said not to get him anything because it is so close to Christmas, so they decided it was time to get creative.

When asked what they bought him, u/GeekyKirby replied:

I pre-ordered him a game [Kingdom Hearts III], and bought him a shirt and a book he wanted :) ...I also filled up his living room floor with balloons...

It seems minor mischief is a common theme in their relationship:

Thank you. :) At this point, I can't really surprise my boyfriend anymore. And I try lol. Like the time I secretly put googly eyes on everything in his fridge...

Oh, and they made him this Pikachu cake. You know, nbd.

Users were impressed by u/GeekyKirby's piping skills. Also, the hate for fondant icing is real!

Nicely done and without fondant! r/FondantHate - Patiod
Today was a bad day on reddit if you genuinely want fondant to not be a thing. Just kidding. But fuck fondant, for real. - mimomusic
We over at r/fondanthate love your buttercream meme! - cherrylpk

A meme!?!?!? On a cake!?!??!?!?!?!Now i've seen everything! - Indetermination

A few were also a bit envious.

This cake looks AWESOME, great job!
Side note: Here's hoping that 2019 will bless me with some manflesh to do nice things like this for too ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿฝ- black_heart85
Hehe this gave me a good chuckle this morning. Now wish I had a boyfriend so I could do this to them. - MidnightMadness21

Making something for someone is a great way to show them you love them.

The best birthday present I ever got was from a girl who baked me a cake secretly. So thanks for doing that for him, I know I'd feel great about it. - Levitr0n

Others have found inventive ways to use the meme as well:

The fact that Surprised Pikachu is still around in 2019 really speaks to its universal appeal and ease of use. People will surely keep coming up with inventive ways to use the meme.

If there's one thing Christian Bale is known for, aside from a very gravely Batman voice, it's the physical transformations he undergoes for his roles. The actor is known to yo-yo his weight from role to role, in order to better portray his characters.

Now, however, the actor is considering calling it quits on the dangerous transformations. In an interview with The Sunday Times, the actor described his process with playing Dick Cheney in the new film Vice.
