Nanny Position Available for $84,000, But There's A Creepy Catch

A Scottish couple is offering a whopping $84,000 (£50,000) for a live-in nanny to come care for their two kids, ages five and seven, but there is one scary catch... their house is haunted. 

In a listing on a childcare site, the pair explained how the nanny would get to stay in their "lovely, spacious, historic property with spectacular views." They'd get their own bedroom, bathroom and even a private kitchen. 

Duties include getting the children ready for school, helping after school and occasionally putting them down at bedtime, but then it gets to the fine print. 

The listing explains, "We have lived in our home for nearly 10 years. We were told it was 'haunted' when we bought it, but kept our minds open and decided to buy the house regardless. 5 nannies have left the role in the last year, each citing supernatural incidents as the reason, including strange noises, broken glass and furniture moving. This has obviously been a period of great upheaval for our children. We haven't personally experienced any supernatural happenings, as they have been reported only while we've been out of the house, but we're happy to pay above the asking rate, and feel it's important to be as up-front as possible to find the right person."

Hopefully the right person gets the job, but it sure sounds like the beginning of a horror movie.
