29 Babysitters Share The Most Messed Up Thing A Kid Has Ever Said To Them Once Their Parents Were Gone

18. Mr. Dies

“I have a nephew that always had an imaginary friend named Mrs. Diles. He would always talk to her and tell us about her. Then one day he saw a picture of an aunt that passed away at a young age, and said ‘That’s Mrs. Diles!’ Creepiest thing I’ve ever been a part of.”


19. Five Miles From Any Other House

“I was playing with the kid (2 years old) outside in the snow and it started to get cold so I picked them up and was carrying them back inside when they pointed at the tree line and asked me: ‘Who’s that?’ The house was five miles away from any other houses at a pretty secluded spot. There shouldn’t be anyone there. I still don’t know what’s worse, that the kid was playing a creepy joke on me (they were only two), or that there was genuinely someone in the woods.”


20. Look At The People

“When I was babysitting my nephew I was holding him up on the deck just after dinner. He looked to a dark part off the side of the deck and pointed and said, ‘Look at the people! I said ‘buddy there is no one over there,’ to which he replied ‘oh yes there are’ while gesturing at individual spots in the yard. I did not sleep well.”
