A Friend Has Asked You to Babysit on Saturday: GT Writing Task 1

A friend has asked you to babysit on Saturday and wants to know how much you charge per hour for this. Unfortunately, you already have a commitment this weekend and cannot help. However, you are free the following weekend.

Write a letter to your friend explaining that you are not able to help this time, but could help later. Also, explain what your fee for the service is.

Dear Sonu,

How are you? I hope you are doing well. I hope this letter finds you in radiant health and the best of spirits. I am glad to see your message, and I am writing to express my deep concern that I will not be available this weekend for babysitting since I was already engaged by another person two weeks ago.

I am really sorry to disappoint you this time. Usually, on weekends, most of the time, bookings will not happen. However, unfortunately, the slot has been booked for this Saturday due to unavoidable circumstances. On the other hand, I wish to inform you that I will be free by next weekend. Indeed if you have any plans to go out, let me know if you need my service to engage your child at that time.

Besides that, I would like to share my charges as per your request in the letter. Generally, charges per hour are 35 dollars till midnight, and if I need to extend my time, overtime charges of an additional 5 dollars would be added to the normal one. Also, leave me with any special instructions if you have any, and please provide me with an alternative contact number in case of any emergency.

Once again, I apologise for not helping you out this Saturday. I would be glad if you would reply to me back if you need my service for the upcoming weekend.

Looking forward to hearing your positive response.

Best Regards,
