This week we are moving from our small beach bungalow to another small beach bungalow 300 yards away. Most of our 600 square foot residence has been packed up, but I realized that help would be a necessity. For those of you that know me, you have already guessed that I turned to craigslist. Within 5 minutes of posting an add seeking “moving help” I had 10-15 responses, 8 hours later my inbox is flooded. These are not auto responses, and while there are certainly a few people that seem shady or severely overpriced for what was described as a small and short move, most of the responses were people genuinely looking for work. Selling themselves for a moving job, and I am sold. There are 4 or 5 of these guys I legitimately would like to hire based on their 3 sentence response, but unfortunately I only need 1. The fact that I had so many offers, so many offers under what I was expecting to pay, makes me a little sad. I am not in a position where I hire people, see resumes, or really have any clue how many people are truly seeking employment (other than stats in the news), but this craigslist post from a small corner of LA opened my eyes to how eager many people are to make a buck. So, I am going to give one of them a few, and hope that my Faberge egg collection makes it safely to its new display case.
