$10.00 per hour?  IS THIS PERSON "F"ING INSANE?????????????  How about you put the crack pipe down and get yourself sober you FREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
These are the kind of people that never find the right person because they WANT too much and expect people to work for nothing!  Yeah I'll do all this and more for you - FREAK! 
I'm still laughing...............I laughed so hard I responded to THIS FREAK and told them they WERE A FREAK! HAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!  I felt so much better after I did that!


  1. The whole time I was reading I was thinking "$10 an hour????!!!!"

    My boss just hired someone who used to be an exotic dancer. I wonder if she realizes she'll make minimum wage and no one will be sticking dollar bills in her waistband!

  2. And here I thought being a laundress and taking care of designer clothing was the ultimate job!

  3. The babysitters in my neighborhood get $10 an hour, just for staying awake while the kids are asleep.

  4. The FREAK did not respond! I didn't expect the FREAK would though!

    What's funny about this is that the town it's in is just a few short 15 miles outside of Boston in a very afflent town - it seems to be that its the usual case of the more you make the less you pay............The FREAK is CHEAP!
