A WOMAN has detailed the very demanding job description she received after applying for a nanny role- and people labelled the bizarre expectations"insane" and even "psychotic".
American actress Hollis Jane Andrews shared photos of the job description on Twitter and explained that she interviewed for the "Magical Nanny/Housekeeper' position in 2013 – but instantly turned the job down upon reading the daily duties.
What's more, the job was only paying $13 (£9.21) an hour and the parents – who practised Scientology – required the full care of their two sons.
The lengthy two-page list of demands required the nanny to stick to a very strict schedule with the day broken up into 15 minutes sections.
The nanny was also required to make sure there was NO noise in the house and never let the kids stop laughing – because "if they're not laughing, they're not happy."
It is also the nanny's responsibility to teach the kids to swim, bathe them and eat meals with them, and once they go down for a nap, she must clean the entire house in 45 minutes.
Posting to Twiitter, Hollis wrote: "'In 2013, I interviewed with an (unbeknownst to me at the time) Scientologist family to be their nanny.
"They gave this absolutely BONKERS list of responsibilities and now I give it to all of you."
She went on to say: "In case it wasn’t clear, I did NOT take the job the minute I saw the word 'dianetics.'"
The "purpose" of the ad was to "keep boys well fed/well slept and house in order to provide sanity for parents."
It read: "Both the boys are to be treated with love, care and understanding at all times. The main focus is to ensure their basic body rudiments (sleep, food, water) are kept in, so that they are not crying/upsetting the rest of the house."
The parents went on to say that they both work and "it is best done distraction free" so they "don't want to hear crying or tantrums or headbutting."
What's more, if the kids ever hurt themselves, the parents insist they should "keep quiet" and apply Dianetics – which is a Scientology practice.
They are also required to be active all day and never stop running, while throwing rocks is highly encouraged, rather than being "shoved in front of a movie".
The schedule is very strict also with the day broken up into 15 or 30 sections – with no room for error.
The day starts at 7:30am when they are served eggs and turkey bacon for breakfast, following by teaching the boys "how to brush their teeth".
"If they are crying and yelling, they are not happy and as a nanny you need to get them back happy again," the schedule continues.
In addition to the "insane" schedule, there's also a long list of cleaning duties the nanny is required to complete once the boys are napping.
This includes emptying everything from the pram, putting toys away, and searching the house for bottles to clean and dry.
What's more, the nanny must do the dishes and clean the kitchen so that "it looks shiny, shiny clean."
"If you finish all this, look around and find anything else that could help things flow in this household better!" the parent continues.
Her post garnered a huge response from Twitter users who were horrified by the extensive list of demands.
"I hate this entire family, kids included. And it’s sight, not 'site' – copy edit your insane demands at LEAST," on person wrote.
"I straight up read this and thought they were their pet dogs," another wrote.
"The 'NEVER LET THEM BE UNHAPPY' tone is putting me in a panic for their kids, who now are grown and probably addicted to unhealthy things because they were never allowed to have the sads," tweeted another.

Others took aim at particular tasks which were listed on the job ad, with one saying: "My fav is the list of jobs to be done within 45 min. And if you somehow finish, they want you to invent work. Insane.
Someone else added: "I want to talk to whoever actually took this job and how long they lasted lol."
