Parenting comes with a plethora of unexpected obstacles and surprises; some of the biggest surprises arrive in the form of bizarre nanny cam moments. The worst things seen on nanny cams can send a parent scrambling for their child's crib, while weird nanny cam moments might have them reconsidering the new babysitter. When parents buy a nanny cam for their child, they typically expect to see lots of crying and thumb sucking. Imagine their shock, then, after their nanny cams reveal kids acting creepy, or worse, the babysitter or guardian acting creepy. But not all of the strangest or worst nanny cam moments deal with only parents. Babysitters often witness strange things themselves on nanny cams, and sometimes people are using nanny cams to watch over their home or pets, not necessarily children.

These nanny cam stories and incidents detail times where this voyeurism led to both hilarious and horrifying incidents. The best of Blumhouse, Warner Bros, or Netflix can't match the dynamic drama of the simple and unassuming nanny cam. Vote up the most shockingly unexpected captures these nanny cams made.

    Adults Need Supervision, Too

    From okaykitty:

    "Well it didn't catch my kids doing anything weird.

    I set up while my husband and kids and I went away for a few days to visit family. I had a friend of mine (who was a recovering alcoholic and staying with us to help get straight) watch our house and take care of our dogs. I felt like it was a simple enough task. There was zero alcohol in our house and she had no car and the closest store was 10 miles away. And her mom, being her only contact in town if she needed help, definitely wouldn't get her alcohol.

    We are about two days into our trip. I text my friend to see if everything is going well. Hours go by with no reply. I try calling her several times and she won't pick up. Her sister calls me worried that she can't get ahold of my friend either. So I turn on my nanny cam to see what's going on. She laying on my couch with nothing on but a tank top and my front door is wide open! I can talk through the camera and tried talking to her, but she was unresponsive but I can see that she is breathing.

    I call my uncle to go over to my house to check on her and find my dogs. I can see on the camera when my uncle gets there. He tries to shake her awake, but she just groans and won't talk. He throws a blanket over her and finds my dogs locked in the laundry room with shit everywhere. And my dog chewed up the hose on my new Dyson, I was pretty peeved. My uncle hangs around awhile until she wakes up and has no clue what happened. He asks her how she got so f*cked up and she told him that she drank a bunch of mouth wash! Don't underestimate addicts.

    I'd like to say though that she's been sober a year and employed and getting her life on track now."

    Gotta Get That Package

    From Kalae:

    "My buddy has a camera that sits on his doorstep. It has a motion sensor and every time it detects someone or something on the porch, it snaps a photo and sends it to his phone.

    It's a Sunday morning, and for once, his two-year-old isn't shouting into his bedroom to get him out of his crib. Ah, yes. A rare morning to lay in bed. His phone goes off. A photo of a little red-headed boy reaching out of the front door to grab a package appears.

    And that's how he discovered that his son could get out of the crib."

    A Super Babysitter

    From gooblagoobla:

    "Not a parent, but once caught the babysitter taking the baby's blanket, putting it around her neck like a small cape, and 'flying' around the room with it on. Keep in mind, the baby could only see out of the crib and was not present for the show.

    Needless to say, we found out she was often high during babysitting."

    What An Egg-scuse

    From darionlar:

    "I had a nanny cam for our chicken coop. I actually caught one of our neighbors brandishing a power drill about to break into our coop. I called the cops and her defense was 'I was worried about the eggs'. The cops let her go. Thanks, rural America."
