Gumtree Ads


I never have any money. This probably ties in well with the last post. Anyhow I decided I should do something about it, so I posted this ad on gumtree looking for some cruisey babysitting work:


Sensible babysitter available


22 year old male babysitter available. Extensive experience in looking after children and very patient.

Based in the north shore and have a car with full license.

Currently full week availability but studying part time soon for 2 days a week. Can select days based on the request of an employer.

Thanks for reading.


I didn’t think that was overtly sexual or anything, but within 10 minutes I got a reply saying the following:


Hi,

I’m a young guy in my late 20s and would like to pay you for the pleasure of your intimate company.

Pay: $150 per hour .

Please let me know if you are interested in some fun and easy cash in hand work.


As tempting as cash in hand work sounds, I did the only thing appropriate and responded letting him know that if he saw a photo of me the price would go up to 300. He didn’t reply.

NOTE: This blog post has some very extensive spacing going on. The only thing more extensive is my experience in looking after children apparently. Now that I think about it, that is a very creepy thing to declare in an ad aimed at impressing parents.
