Babysitting question?

I recently just had a babysitting job and they offered to pay me $15 a hour ( which I actually already thought was a little high). The parents are both doctors and have very good money. I watched their kid for a little less than 4 hours. I was expecting like 60$ but they paid me $80. Should I text the lady and tell

I watched their kid for a little less than 4 hours. I was expecting like 60$ but they paid me $80. Should I text the lady and tell her she overpaid me or do you think she meant to over pay me? It was the first time I sat for this family, so maybe they overpaid me to make sure I'll come back. I'm not sure exactly what to do. They could have gave me the extra $20 for gas, but should I check?

Yes. Call them and tell them. They will think of you as being an honest person and will respect you and want you to babysit more often. As their child gets older, they may want to employ you as a full time nanny, and you'll be paid very well. You'll be showing them they can trust you. Never betray any trust anyone has in you, rather nurture the trust. I think you impressed them.

You can always really politely test her and tell her that you thought you were getting paid $15 an hour and only babysat for less than 4 hours, so she probably overpaid you. And then say that her kid/s were great and that you watch them again but just wanted to let you know that she may have overpaid you.

if you want to bring it to their attention by all means do so, but it is not likely they wrote $80 rather than $60, this might be a tip for you that they are very satisfied with you

$20 in gas? you would have to drive a couple hundred miles for the car expenses to be that much. i wouldn't say anything…these are intelligent people..they know how to count money

They know what they gave you. They like you. They are contributing to your future. Save for college/university. Be sure and thank them after they pay you.
