I did a deep dive into the weirdest things listed on Coventry Craiglist

You want to get paid to wax someone’s pubes?


Let me keep it real for a second, when I went searching for jobs in the depths of Cov Craiglist, I knew I was going to see some very weird things. This isn't Indeed or Totaljobs. Honestly, after reviewing the job offers, I'm a little concerned that I may be facilitating some creeps who are definitely sex traffickers.

Oh, and there's always the question of "Should I be endorsing a dude who wants to stare at you while you drink coffee stark naked? Or am I being a bad feminist if I assume you don't have autonomy of your own body and therefore, the inherent right to want to sit on a 46 year old dudes face for cash?"

Or maybe I'm being too serious and I just wanted to spend my Monday evening browsing through job ads that make me want to run away and join a Nunnery for fear of all the men in the West Midlands. Kind of like why you'd watch a horror movie or any episode of Black Mirror.

These are some of the most interesting (and questionable) ones I've found.

Good at stalking? Found a job for you

Okay GI Joe, I see you. Looks like you can advertise your "catch your man with another hoe" skills on craigslist.

No judgement. I just want to talk

Honestly. What the fuck? Does that drink come with a side of roofie? What's the deal here?

079 me. We need to have a conversation. Stat.

Discussion point 1: Why can't you shave your own balls?

Discussion point 2: Dude just wants to spoon. "Nothing strange" sksksk.

Discussion point 3: Rumpelstiltskin, if that's you, blink twice.

Look at this absolute gem

I mean, okay Sir

Sounds like an interesting episode of Euphoria to me.

Pull your gloves on and scrub-a-dub-dub

And your heels. Because apparently that's a MAJOR requirement of being a cleaner. Sounds fishy to me.

Student friendly? We like

You can offer to walk people's dogs? What? Absolutely yes.

Also, the English Lit students are SWEATING.

Aristotle or Quentin Tarantino? Take your pick

Are you a Philosophy student looking to work from home? Holler at Alexandre, he wants to throw some cash at you.

As for the other one, watching movies online (like I do anyway) and getting paid for it sounds kind of awesome.

YES

So I'm essentially getting paid to be extremely critical of Wattpad novels? Where do I sign?

Conclusion

Yes, there were several men willing to pay people to shave their pubes and there are several more looking for submissive house slaves. This is not a Fifty Shades Book, Jamie Dornan, get off Craiglist PLEASE.

There were also a couple jobs that wanted a 'Barcs' account and felt the need to add '(totally legal)' on the end. Definitely a fraud boi.

In conclusion, unless you don't mind exploring the inside of a dirty white van unexpectedly, please just go back to Indeed.
