Do You Want To Write A Story?

This title should be sang to the tune of “Do You Want To Build A Snowman,” because I’ve been watching certain videos on YouTube this morning against my will.

Have you ever done any freelance writing work? I have. A lot. While I get some work from word of mouth, most of the jobs I find are on Craigslist or other job boards. And if you’ve ever searched Craigslist for any freelance work, you probably know that you have to go through a bunch of shitty ads to find one decent one worth responding to.

I was browsing Craigslist last night, as I do most nights. I’m not really in a place to do much work right now, but I wanted to see if anyone had anything for a few hours per week. I didn’t find anything of course, but I did find one super shitty job listing. So shitty that it is worth sharing. (Click image to view larger size if you’re having trouble reading it.)

There are just no words for that story line, but I have my doubts about how legit that life story is.

And the compensation–a percentage. So you’re not going to get paid anything to write this unless it sells. It does have Lifetime potential, so it could be the tiniest cash cow ever.

Should I go for it? 😉

What’s the craziest or strangest job listing you’ve ever seen?

  1. That friend I told you about that introduced A and me at a party- that I later found out was an ex stripper- well…she once responded to an ad for a “foot model” and she showed up and the guy wanted her to put on exercise attire and pretend play volleyball where one foot was kicked behind her and just make these random poses- he then proceeded to ask for extra cash if she would let him ejaculate on her feet!!! 😱😱😱😱😂😂😂 lmao- so this is when she told me this story and that she actually did this for that extra money that I questioned her integrity etc- lol- anyone that would let some random foot fetish freak get off on their feet for money would do just about anything…
    Funny what you can find out about people through Craig’s list 😳😂

  2. I found a listing once of a guy who wanted a pretend girlfriend to bring home for Christmas. Travel expenses paid, $500 cash at the airport on the way back. The kicker?

    “We may have to sleep together or at least make some jizz show up somewhere. My mom will check the linens and expect some juice. We have to make it look legit.”

    I kid you NOT.

  3. I’ve never looked at Craigslist. But if there’s stuff like that on there (and stuff like other commenters have left) I might have a look when I need some light relief.
    If you don’t want this premium writing job, can I have it? 🙂
