Nanny From Hell Is Finally Out Of There!!! Diane Stretton Has Left Ex Employer's Home!

nanny from hell finally leaves

We're glad this is finally over!

Even if it did take a LONG time!

64-year-old Diane Stretton has finally left her ex-employer's home after initially refusing to go!

The woman - who has been called the Nightmare Nanny and the Nanny from Hell - originally was hired by Marcel and Ralph Bracamonte to do some nanny work and some light housekeeping for their home in Upland, California off of Craigslist, but suddenly stopped doing her job one day.

Although she claims she stopped working because the family kept making additional demands of her - the family weren't going to let her just not do anything and so the family fired her only after two months of hiring her.

The only problem was that they had been giving her free room and board for her services, so naturally they expected Diane Stretton to pack up and go, but the former employee balked at that request and refused to move until she was ready!

The family tried to evict her, but when a judge sided with the nanny

Penn State Gives Students Tips For Post-Sex Scandal Job Interviews

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad SadFootballSex

In the wake of the Jerry Sandusky sex scandal that rocked Penn State University, it makes sense that students may be a little concerned for their professional future.

Although it will be an uphill battle for ANY college student seeking a job following graduation in this economy, we're willing to bet more than a few students are wondering if a degree from PSU will make their search even harder.

Honestly, we don't think it will unless you were caught on camera flipping a news van or your Facebook profile picture features you downing a beer bong in front of Joe Paterno's campus statue.

Nevertheless, the school has sent out a reassuring letter to address their student's concerns and give them a few interviewing tips to distract potential employers from the devastating scandal, reading:

"Students may acknowledge that they are primarily concerned for the victims and also concerned for Penn State in these unsettling times. However, students should keep the focus on the job or internship for which they are applying and how they will excel in the opportunity. Students should note that they can only take personal responsibility for their individual actions. Talk about all of the good work accomplished at Penn State in building the skills and professional qualities in preparation for the position, and about the excitement to put those skills to work for the employer. Inform the employer or internship site that, if hired, you will reflect favorably on the employer through your good work, core values and skills obtained through our University."

Be prepared to address the issue as we're sure the employer will be curious for your opinion, but don't sweat it too much. Anybody who will judge you on the actions of others probably isn't the best person to work for anyway!
