need to vent

ARG some people I tell you!!!! So I have this really nice Au pair that has spend the last 10 month (i think) with this family that moved into my region a couple of months ago. She is nice quiet, from Panama. The first time I met here she was in tears after a few minutes telling me who she couldn't wait to get home because all American were mean. I had met the host mother a few minutes prior to us leaving the house and my first impression was that they are not the warm and fuzzy type of host family.
Anyhow for awhile she thought about just going home but then she decided to stick out the rest of the time as it was only a couple more months. So next week is when she leaves and she is soooo excited about going home. I had to go meet the family the other day and the host mom (who works from home in her own time) said she couldn't take her to the airport. I told her about the shuttle services in the area and then went on with my business. This week I get an email from the Au pair saying the host mom refuses to pay for the shuttle??? WTF this poor girl lived in your house, took care of your kid and you can't be bothered to get her to the airport or pay for the shuttle????? So now I have to take of from my day job, drive 200+ miles round trip to get her there. I am sure the next au pair is not going to last long and I do not care what corporate wants me to do I will not lift a finger to help that family find another poor girl to make miserable!!!!!
