Last week I created a want ad seeking peace of mind and posted it on Craigslist as sort of a social experiment…
Here are some excerpts from a few of the responses I received over the weekend:
I hope you kill yourself, gaywad.
If you want peace of mind, I would suggest shutting up and going to the bar. Complaining on Craigslist isn’t going to help you.
Nobody is happy or has peace of mind… GET OVR IT.
youmonstersarepeople? what kind of stupid ass email address is that?
I’m sorry to hear that you are unhappy but remember that you aren’t alone. I’m looking for a job right now and coming across your ad reminded me that we are all just trying to make due. It’s scary and I hope that we both end up with a little peace of mind. Godbless you.
I am offer lessons in meditation in Harlem.
MAYBE YOU SOULD JUST KILL YOURSELF!
Don’t join the military. that’s what I did and I regret it.
Here is a suggestion: Cram your entire fist into your own ass and then set yourself on fire.
Hello. I am in search of someone to help in tutoring my son, his name is Alexavier and he is 12 years old, will be coming to states for a visit. My family and myself are current in London, he’s in the 7th grade and am offering to pay $55/hr and the job will be for 8 hours in 2 weeks so get back to me with the total cost of your tutorial lessons.
As regards to your payment, I want you to know that I will be paying via certified check for the payment of the tutorial and also will be sending some extra for the payment of the Nanny to take care of him while he’s there for the lesson. The nanny will be the one to bring him to you whenever he’s suppose to be with you and will also be the one to pick him up after every tutoring session.
If you are okay with my terms and would like to proceed with the tutorial position I will like you to kindly send your full contact information to receive the check so that payment can be sent out to
you on-time. Thanks and waiting to read from you. Kindly get back to me with your full info so as to issue out the payment as soon as possible. Please get back to me asap and i don’t want any delay at all.
Please acknowledge the receipt of this email so that i can understand you got it.
I actually received a lot like that last one. Sometimes there were six or seven from the same person. People really need you to tutor their children or help out their family members in far off countries but haven’t quite figured out the methodology of using separate checks or their own credit cards yet. In the end, I feel like this was a learning experience.
