Can You Pick my Lice?

As I was innocently perusing the listings on Kijiji (think Craigs List) the other day, making my way through the postings of couches, dining sets, and second hand flip flops I came across an interesting ad.

Could employment be this easy?

Is the economy on the up swing?

So if you’re looking for employment she’s looking for an employee.

She’s willing to pay.

But not much.

    October 26, 2011 | 9:51 am

    Wow! Well at least she is asking for help….I know of one particular mom who I wish would post an add that says “I don’t care to delouse my children, if someone out there would like to do it for me great, but if not they will be fine to have it for 3 years. Because I as their mother certainly won’t do anything about it!!” Just sayin…..
    This ad strikes a serious nerve!
    I must say it’s great she is trying to get help at least, that would take a lot of guts to post that……

Can You Pick my Lice?

As I was innocently perusing the listings on Kijiji (think Craigs List) the other day, making my way through the postings of couches, dining sets, and second hand flip flops I came across an interesting ad.

Could employment be this easy?

Is the economy on the up swing?

So if you’re looking for employment she’s looking for an employee.

She’s willing to pay.

But not much.
