A San Francisco Bay Craigslist ad has gone viral – the crazy, rambling ad, “Personal Assistant MUST LOVE DOGS – PT/FT, $15 – 35/hr (SOMA / south beach)” has gained so much attention that it’s lighting up Twitter and taking on a life of its own.

crazy Craigslist ad

The ad starts off by simply asking for a personal assistant for two busy 40-something executives living in the city with their dog. It then continues into a rambling dialogue about the couple’s crazy, overwhelming life.

We’re resorting to unhealthy take-out and processed foods — anything we can grab and munch on in-between working on our computers, we aren’t getting enough sleep (8 hrs/night is a must but rarely achieved), that very cute dog I mentioned doesn’t have someone to play with daily, personal social media accounts are neglected, I buy fresh flowers but don’t have time to trim daily and change the water, indoor plants are dying.

Not only is Twitter going nuts for the run-on ad, but the people who posted it are apparently being inundated with inquiries as well. The updated ad states:

*WE’RE RECEIVING A LOT OF INTEREST. PLS MAKE SURE TO SEND A VIDEO!*

*UPDATE: DUE TO HIGH DEMAND WE’RE OFFERING $15-35/HR (VS. THE FORMER $25-30/HR).*

*UPDATE: WE’VE RECEIVED A LOT OF CURIOSITY ABOUT WHAT WE DO FOR A LIVING. WE’RE IN BIOTECH. TO PUT IT SIMPLY, WE DESIGN DRUGS THAT ENCOURAGE THE IMMUNE SYSTEM TO ATTACK TUMORS.*

Before you rush to apply – take a peek at the typical schedule:

    Very interesting – I applaud these guys for their consideration for their dog and make sure he is well taken care of. There may be a lot of other work involved for they are willing to pay a good amount of money hourly – don’t think it is unreasonable.
