I Think This Guy Is Working A Little Too Hard…Are You Too?

Aug 9, 2011, Entrepreneurship

We’ve all been working too hard lately. Time to do something fun today. Here’s an ad that was posted on Craig’s List:

Seeking someone to live my life for six months

I am looking to hire a white male, aged 35, with short brown hair and a stocky build, to live my life for the next six months. Compensation is $50,000. You will go to work for me, live in my house, sleep in the same bed as my wife, and discipline my children. Applicants must only partially resemble me. It doesn’t really matter. No one pays attention anyway.

I’ll give you a long list of things to remember. You will have access to my gym, country club, and Lakers season tickets. You go to work Monday-Friday, 9am to 5pm, at an accounting firm. I’ve already done all the work ahead of time, so all you will really have to do is sit behind my desk and nod at people.

I will be taking a break from my life and will be unreachable.

Please reply with a bit about yourself and a photograph.

P.S.: If this sounds uncomfortably familiar, maybe it’s time to shake things up a bit. . .
