Although it's been 10 million years since I've used Craigslist, I know that the site is a great way to put out advertisements to the world. HOWEVER, I feel like one Craigslist ad has gone to the extreme.
On Twitter, comedian Kimberly Harrington shared pieces of a Craigslist ad seeking a "household manager / cook / nanny," but y'all...the requirements of this role are ASTOUNDING.
So the ad started off pretty straightforward — they wanted someone long-term who exhibited all the good signs of "leadership, strategy, drive, attention to detail, high energy, and kindness":
They also pointed out that the mom is a CEO and "needs to relax on weekends":
Then it got exceedingly more detailed. This person also needs to ideate vacation options, put those ideas in Excel spreadsheets, compare "using credit card points to booking vacations versus paying cash":
This person needs a Google calendar for the gardening, child. OH, and the owner of the ad made sure to note that they can specifically "eat duck eggs" :
Wait y'all, I am ROTFL — this person needs to "correctly quantify how much fish to purchase for five people" :
On top of all that, the person also needs to be "physically active," can "influence the children positively in many areas including self-soothing, self-discipline, organization, conflict resolution, perseverance," and would ideally be able to "speak Spanish or French fluently, able to teach the kids to play the piano or guitar and Water Safety Instructor certified." Simple, right?
Honestly, is there any price too high for ALL this?
I mean...happy wife, happy life:
Some people are now questioning their entire parenting styles:
