All right, so this post, cleverly entitled “PET SITTERS NEEDED” has been up on Philly’s Craigslist for like a year now. I wonder why they haven’t filled the positions?

Hell, I can name a dozen people off the top of my head who dream of becoming career pet sitters. I mean, come on: $15/hour, part-time, no benefits and a “go-with-the-flow” schedule including nights, weekends and holidays really sets one up for retirement. I can just picture the blessed few who qualify for this job bending over to pick up a steaming fresh dog turd at 3am on Thanksgiving Day, and thinking to themselves:

Here I am. I’ve really made it.
