If you think your mother is horrible for showing your embarrassing baby pictures to everyone, think again, because there are far worse well-meaning moms out there.
A concerned woman, named Margot, has placed an extremely unusual and hilarious add on Gumtree, the website known for cheap second hand sales. The advert explains that the woman’s son is too busy studying at Cambridge that he can’t find himself a date for the upcoming ball this May. In order to save her son from humiliation (or more likely humiliate him even more) the well-meaning mother is searching to hire a blonde girl as his date. The suitable candidate is a blonde girl between the age of 19 and 22, who is talkative and has a sincere attitude towards the opportunity of being a geeky Cambridge student’s date. Margot also states that the right applicant won’t have to worry about any expenses – like the right outfit or hairdo, for example.
The woman also states that she wants her son and his date to make wonderful memories at the ball. Talk about ridiculous adverts!
