(The following is based on a true incident.) Dear Mr. and Mrs. Dom Perignon: I had a great time baby-sitting your son on Friday night. We did a lot of coloring, Lego building, and even played hide-n-seek, which he won (of course). He was very good about brushing his teeth and getting into bed on time. I started to read Charlotte\u2019s Web to him, but he fell asleep just before Wilbur meets Templeton. The reason I am writing you this letter is to let you know that I will not be able to baby-sit for you again. I am very sorry and I am going to miss your son a lot. I feel very sad because I trusted you and never imagined you would put me in a dangerous situation, but you did. I was brought up to trust and respect adults. Now I don\u2019t know what to think. In the past, Mr. Perignon has always driven me home with no problem, but last Friday night felt different. When you came home, you were both acting weird and it scared me. You were talking to me really loudly even though I was right there and I couldn\u2019t understand some of your words. I was really worried because I needed to get home, but I was too scared to tell you that I didn\u2019t want to get in your car. Actually, I was also angry that you thought it was OK to drive me home. I guess you didn\u2019t realize how much you had to drink at the party. I wish you had. I wish you had made a different decision. Remember how I told you my mom was in the neighborhood and was going to pick me up just down the street from your house? I lied. When I told you I needed to use the bathroom before leaving, I actually called Safe Rides from your bathroom. I explained my situation to them and they said they would come and take me home. Instead of waiting for my mom at the end of your street, I waited for two sober Wilton High School seniors. That\u2019s the ironic part. Everyone in this town thinks that it\u2019s the kids who drink and drive and make bad decisions. What I learned last Friday night was that I could count on 18-year-olds more than I could count on adults. I used to believe I was safe with adults and adults would always make the right decisions. I guess I don\u2019t believe that anymore. Maybe everything they tell us at school is a joke? Maybe it\u2019s fine that people my parents\u2019 age drink and drive and that it\u2019s just younger people who aren\u2019t supposed to? Maybe I am just making a big deal, but all I know is that I felt very alone and confused that night. Because you are such good friends with my parents, I haven\u2019t told them anything because I don\u2019t want to hurt their relationship with you. It is clear to me, even at 14 years old, that social stuff and what people think is really important in this town. All I ask is you don\u2019t put another baby-sitter in the same situation. They might not be as resourceful and might allow you to drive them home. I want them to make it home. Sincerely, The Baby-sitter Information about Safe Rides, is at wiltonsaferides.webs.com.
