This was an actual posting. Luckily I printed it as soon as I read it, because it was too good not to save. I tried to send a friend the link this afternoon but the ad has since been pulled. Here is the ad - verbatim from what I printed.
"Nemesis required. 6 - month project with possibility to extend"
I've been trying to think of ways to spice up my life. I'm 35 years old, happily married with two kids and I have a good job in insurance. But somethings missing. I feel like I'm old before my time. I need to inject some excitement into my daily routine through my arm before its too late. I need a challenge, something to get the adrenaline pumping again. An addiction would be nice, but, in short, I need a nemesis. I'm willing to pay $350 up front for your services as an arch enemy over the next six months. Nothing crazy. Steal my parking space, knock my coffee over, trip me when I'm running to catch the BART and occasionally whisper in my ear "Ahhhh, we meet again." That kind of thing. Just keep me on my toes. Complacency will be the death of me. You need to have an evil streak and be blessed with innate guile and cunning. You should also be adept at inconspicuous pursuit. Evil laugh preferred. Send me a photo and a brief explanation why you would be a good nemesis. British accent preferred.
OK folks, just how darn bored with your life do you have to be to post an online ad inviting this stranger into your life?
There have been some famous hero - nemesis partnerships
So now I have to wonder if he got any responses. And then of course my dark twisty mind went to work thinking about what kinds of things his nemesis could do to spice up this poor lonely (naive) guys life. I thought his suggestions in the ad were a little tame (or lame)
Lets see, Get the the $350 up front and then steal the guys car, leave it in the yard of a local House of Ill-repute and report it stolen. Ummmm, steal his credit card, buy sexy lingerie, send it to his wife at home with another womans name on the card. Ahhhh, hack his work email account and send imappropriate emails to the boss's wife. Well......they guy said he wanted to spice up his life..............
I did consider applying (briefly). I practiced my evil laugh all day Muwahhahhahaha
Any other suggested activities for a pure evil nemesis? I know I have lots of readers here with dark twisty minds like mine. Suggestions??
Just think - this guy could be following YOU around
