Atlanta Man Says He’ll Do Anything (Legal) For A Price
Don’t write-off the U.S. economic recovery just yet. The nation’s industrial sector, which has led the expansion but cooled recently, showed signs of renewed life in recent months. Unemployment claims are down are hiring is occurring in the private sector.
But, some Americans continue to struggle.
Travis Boyles says he will do “what you want him to do for less money than whoever you are paying to do it now.”
Boyles makes 35 (often humorous) suggestions of what exactly he could do for you in a craigslist ad. For example
(For five dollars he will draw your face on a balloon, for 1,000 he will build you a cardboard car and make vroom vroom sounds when you drive it.)
But Boyles also wants everybody to know he is being completely serious, and really will do anything, as long as it’s not illegal.
The 20-year old Atlanta man, who was recently laid off his job as a copywriter, told NPR that he has made 300 dollars doing various tasks for folks who responded to his ad in the week after he posted it.
He’s got a good attitude, and, I hope he doesn’t get MY job!
