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 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. I also mentioned that I'm a dude. He didn’t reply. The worst part is that was the only reply I received. I suck at job ads apparently.
