Some things are just too funny not to post

I think I mentioned way back when that to me Craigslist is comedy gold. I know that's not its intent,but good lord, with stuff like this how can it not be? Honestly, I may not need to sell or buy a thing but I find that I look at Craigslist regularly just so I can find little gems like this:

Need money, can do many types of jobs < location redacted>

I am in desperate need for rent money and am looking for any odd jobs that people need done so that I can keep my place.

I am a 22 yr old girl out of cosmetology school that needs some extra cash.

I am a great listener and will keep people company
I can help people move to their new apartment
Babysitting, I'm very good with kids
Being someones date for an event, I am very personable and cute!
Event shows
Handing out flyers
Anything within means, this is not meant to be perverted, I just want to help other people and be able to stay at my apt this month!

Please email me reasonable requests,

Sure she says "reasonable requests". But,Let me spank you while I wear a gorilla costume might be a perfectly reasonable request to Chester the molester.

I feel for this girl,kind of, because I know what it's like to be young and broke. But there has just got to be another way. Seriously! She didn't have one non-crazy friend to talk her out of placing said ad or uh wording it differently. It also puzzles me that she makes a point of saying she's just out of cosmetology school yet doesn't talk about hairstyling/cutting or perhaps doing makeup for a special event. I would think that would be the first thing she'd want to to do. But i'm guessing that she was high when she placed this ad... so common sense probably flew out the window.

*sigh* I have little hope for our future.

Sadly, I remember when I had to make the decision whether I should stay in school, and be completely broke, or start a career. I saw a documentary on Vancouver's 'ladies of the evening'. The one woman was probably 40 but looked about 90 and had no teeth... which might actually be a selling feature in her line of work... booked everything online (ie. no middle man, ie. pimp), worked 2 days a week and pulled in $62,000. Not going to lie, I was tempted. Curse you, morals... curse you!!!

ps... I would hire to do such odd jobs as: following me around, taking pictures; taking dictation of my everyday thoughts; sorting my pantry based on UPC code and de-shelling my pistachios. I also wouldn't mind having my toilet paper folded into a point, like they do at hotels.

Just to name a few...
