I have a friend who works as a nanny. She works primarily for one family, which she hates, and helps out two others that she kind of likes. All the families pay her hourly (due to her experience, she averages around $13 or so an hour), and she probably makes slightly less than what they're offering this person here on a yearly basis (she's a college student as well, with a place she shares with roommates, so she's not a live in. She's stated she NEVER would.).

I'm not seeing what's making your blood boil here...this looks pretty standard.

None of the families she works with would allow a nanny to live with them who didn't speak fluent English or had other children (if they don't care, they get an Au Pair. Going rate for those as a live-in is $200 a week plus room and board, BTW.). Too hard to communicate, and they don't want to integrate their own kids with someone elses. They also like references or at least some kind of proof that you're not a complete idiot, which having an education will provide.

And while the security deposit part is a bit jacked, the year contract and credit/background check are completely standard when you're bringing someone in to work with your kids. You don't want them to leave right away, and you REALLY don't want them to be a criminal.

As for the job description...as my friend put it to me "my job description is to do whatever needs to be done right at that moment. And sometimes that means laundry and picking up prescriptions for mom. I don't really care, as long as they pay me for it and it's not illegal."

Overnights, weekends, and nights? Hey, that's when my friend who does this tends to work. And she will get paid hugely for this, because she's hourly. This might be a bit of a rip due to the salary.

And the salary? A bit low, probably. But a free car, cell phone, and place to live? Hey, if you took those three bills off my plate, I could have my salary lowered to 15K a year and actually still get by reasonably well. And this person probably won't have to buy their own cable, internet access, or most of their food either. In my personal situation, I'd actually be about as well off if not slightly better off than I am now in this case.

So, what is the problem with this? I'm not getting it.

Wow, perhaps I am out of touch; I guess here are my beefs:

They obviously want a live in nanny/maid. As I see it that is part of the of description and for trading off any sort of independent life for a year, you should not be charged for room and board.

"At least 40 hours, including some evenings and weekends". This is pretty open ended and one sided; no mention of guaranteed days off.

Free car and cell phone; I think that those are tools required to perform the job. It is like a ad that promotes that fact that you get a free Blackberry with the position. The reason they are giving you the Blackberry is so that you can be contacted 24 x 7.

Security deposit. These people seem to be accepting no risk in the deal. What is to say that they don't screw the nanny out of the security deposit and her last paycheck as well?

Paid vacation. OK, I'm totally reading into this, but I would bet that the paid vacation coincides with the family's vacation and they send you packing for the week.

I guess it was that the whole thing came off one sided and like they are doing you a favor by becoming their indentured servant, and as my dad always said "Don't do me any favors".

I agree. I'd run as fast as I could from an ad like this.

And advertise on Craig's List? For a nanny? Don't think so. Phone sex, maybe.

I know a few married women who would jump at the chance at this kind of work for approximately 40 hours week with pay. Many do the same work and more 24-7 for no pay, plus they have to have sex with husbands they can't stand.

Oh, this is definitely not an ideal position, by any means. And the security deposit part is kind of jacked up.

But, I get the feeling that in that world it's not exactly a terrible offer either. I should show it to my friend and see if she thinks it's OK. LOL

The deal breaker for me was the 3 year old. The 11 and 13 year olds can pretty much look after themselves. But the 3 year old would be a gigantic pain in the ass. Constant supervision.....and I think you would have to feed it or something. :P

I hate snow and country music, so no perk there either.

Found this real personal ad from a 25 year old gay guy in Olympia:

Not too long ago, a guy had me over to his place. he let me fu** his fleshlight. he held it for my while i f***ed it or i would kick back and he jacked me with it. I cant stop thinking about how good it was. If that dude is out there, it me up again and lets repeat. or any other guys interested in doing something similar who have a flesh light, Email me. Dont email me unless 1) you are serious, 2) you have a pic and 3) you have a fleshlight. PS - NO TOUCHING, just jacking with the fleshlight.

Another good one:
I love having my bare bottom smacked with a hand or maybe certain implements in any position. I have a very pert little bottom. I live fairly central and should be moving to the Temple Bar area in a few weeks.

Spanked by a man - fee (see below)
Spanked by a man with a woman present (eg your wife?) - no fee

Email me if you are interested in hiring me so that you can act out your fantasies. Perhaps just one time if you like ... or maybe we could build up an ongoing friendship.

I will reply to all friendly, chatty emails.

Please tell me how much you're willing to pay for this service. I'm not just doing it for the money - I genuinely love it - but a boy has to pay his rent! I don’t want to rip anyone off here and intend to charge less than an escort would charge, though it depends because I’m fairly new to this.

If you can arrange for a woman to watch, I'll do it for free!

Probably because he gets off on it when a chick is watching. If it's just a guy, it's a job...like the gay for pay porn starts. I dunno...just a thought.

Or maybe it was poorly phrased and what he meant to say is that the woman can watch for free but the man still has to pay. Not unlike those restaurants where "kids eat free", but only if the parents pay for their meal.

And maybe the "free" woman is good for business, because it will attract some guys who figure that "it's not gay if my wife is there watching". So I guess even the sex industry you can use marketing gimmicks :D

30's asian american female seeking an Irish Gentleman - 38

hello,

I have given up on dating in LA and thought I would give Ireland a try. I'm a 30's single female (never been married) looking for a serious committed long term relationship and looking for a marriage minded individual.

I am college educated, well read, well traveled.

Please take a look at my ad and if it piques your interest, feel free to drop me a line! hope to hear from you


That seems like quite a jump, doesn't it? Hate to tell you, but if you couldn't find what you were looking for amongst the 10 million or so people in Los Angeles, the odds don't look too good for you in any country.

According to 2006 estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau, the population of Los Angeles is 3,773,846 making it the 2nd largest city in the U.S.

Now, if you are talking about Los Angeles County, the 2006 estimates is 9,948,081.

But, I can understand her frustration though.
