This Craigslist ad just cracks me up because I totally want the job... however, my current coworkers might argue that this already is my job. It bothers my OCD psyche that this person didn't spell-check though, I would have to charge them more than the $350 they're offering for the spelling issue.


Nemesis required. 6-month project with possibility to extend

Date: 2008-05-07, 2:49PM PDT

I've been trying to think of ways to spice up my life. I'm 35 years old, happily married with two kids and I have a good job in insurance. But somethings missing. I feel like I'm old before my time. I need to inject some excitement into my daily routine through my arm before its too late. I need a challenge, something to get the adrenaline pumping again. An addiction would be nice, but, in short, I need a nemesis. I'm willing to pay $350 up front for you services as an arch enemy over the next six months. Nothing crazy. Steal my parking space, knock my coffee over, trip me when Im running to catch the BART and occasionaly whisper in my ear, "Ahha, we meet again". That kind of thing. Just keep me on my toes. Complacency will be the death of me. You need to have an evil streak and be blessed with innate guile and cunning. You should also be adept at inconsicuous pursuit. Evil laugh preferred. Send me a photo and a brief explanation why you would be a good nemesis.

British accent preferred.


Thanks allot Cory for getting me started on this total time-sucker of an addiction. If anyone is wondering why I didn't answer the phone or show up at your function it's because I can't pry myself away from these crazy ads. If you want to go check out the best of Craigslist you can, but some of it is not for the faint of heart thus the lack of linkage as I have some younger readers.
