CL-WTF?

mpp thanks
.... WHAT?!

1) Looking for a Babysitter (D.C.)
I'm a live-in nanny in Georgetown, but I'm looking for someone who can look after the kids when I'm off. The kids are great, but my boss is kinda weird... if you're a girl, you've gotta be cute; if you're a guy, you've gotta look gay (just look it, not necessarily be it)... He'll pay you $100 a night and will probably give you a raise if you stick around long enough. Let me know if you're interested and we can set up an interview!

About the last one- no one's going to pay $700 for new year's eve care in New Jersey!! That's laughable!!

shame on you said...

40 dollars an hour.. I hope someone pays that to her, and she can reinvest it into an education of some sorts. If you're going to try to charge someone 40 dollars an hour, maybe have someone proof read your horrible ad first?

700 dollars.. yeah - I'll pass. haha.

Maybe I'm missing something, but why is #3 on here? Just because she's a nanny? It doesn't even say anything about looking for a job. And it's in the personals section, not the childcare section...

nc said...

I didn't really get why #3 was on there either.

my guess said...

#3 is on there because she is advertising for a date with a photo in the Ad... with her charge.

NanGAL said...

Whoa what about #1?? what kind of employer wants their male nanny to look gay??

CuriousDad said...

#3 My Guess, the kind who wants and person with a woman's outlook dealing with their kids and does not want another "man" interfering? Or maybe he is Bi-himself and swings for both fences? Otherwise, yeah it is weird.

CuriousDad said...

Sorry that should be #1 not #3

MissMannah said...

I took a second look at #3 and sure enough, the little boy is in the picture. That is really creepy. Also, a little naive, but what are studs and fems? (or do I even want to know?)

LOL at the last one, $700 for the night? I'm really hoping she meant $70.

MissMannah said...

Also, did anyone try to watch the video of Jason the ADHD child in #12? The link took me to a dating website! Is the ad a phony or did the parent just give a wrong link?

talesfromthe(nanny)hood said...

I think it's likely that #12 is a virus of some sort. Don't click the link, or, if you already have, run all your scanning software!

MissMannah said...

I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to this stuff, but can my laptop get a virus from a legitimate website? I didn't actually click on anything on the site, immediately exited out when I saw what it was. I think I'll defer this to hubby when he gets home.

lala said...

In #3, the woman posting the ad is a lesbian, posting a personal in the "Women Seeking Women" section. "Studs" are lesbian women who are more traditionally "masculine," and "fems" are lesbian women who are more traditionally "feminine." She's saying she is interested in either. I can barely see the little boy in the picture, so, yeah, it's not a great choice, but it looks like a pretty low-res cell phone pic, I don't think anyone could even tell who the child is in that picture.

Marypoppin'pills said...

Calm your fears everyone... #12 is NOT a virus. She does have an Ad up on a legitimate Dating site with a video of her son posted on it. I used my scan to check for everything first and it is safe. I would never knowingly put up a Link that would be detrimental to anyone's computer.

What is wrong with #14? Am I just not seeing it?

gym rat said...

# 14: "a person who loves kids and would like to care for my child for discounted rent or rent free" = NO PAY!

Why is someone always trying to trade discounted or free rent to babysit? Hell if I would ever do it. Besides, you eventually get sucked in doing more hours than was ever intended and get taken advantage of. I have seen it happen.

Christina said...

i tried to go that website, i signed up and searched the name but no results...

talesfromthe(nanny)hood said...

mpp, I know you wouldn't do anything knowingly, but hackers are constantly one step ahead of us "regular folks", and I personally never click links from people I don't know AND trust.

No insult meant!

Marypoppin'pills said...

No offense taken, TFTNH. You are correct... so I will remove the Link.

Curiouser said...

CuriousDad, I don't understand your comment about #1. Are you saying that gay men have a "woman's outlook"?

CuriousDad said...

Curiouser, nope.
I have male and female gay friends, I know better. Either he swings for both fences or thinks a gay guy has a "womans outlook". Both are wrong reasons for hiring a baby sitter. I do not know ANY of my male gay friends who have a womans "outlook". A couple of the guys are pretty extravagant, but no womans outlook there. Better dress sense then many women. :)

lol said...

I love number 12! lololol she put the video on her "dating profile"

lolololol :)

Ed said...

It really baffles me how little people are willing to pay for child care. They should just come out and say "I'm looking for an illegal alien to take care of my kids for little waages and no respect" ughh!
