I really hate when I try to be friends with someone and they don’t write me back. Assholes.

I have seen this ad on craigslist quite a few times and the wording bugged me. The ads never had a link for me to write them..until now.

Good afternoon. Maybe this has been asked before or I missed it on the ad. I have a 3 year old nephew and if state labor laws allow, I would like him to work as your photographer. I know you said newborn, but I think since he’s older he has better dexterity to handle buttons. He has a lot of energy and only naps once a day. He just recently starting going “ca-kee” on his own too so that’s not an issue. I am not a trained photographer, but I suspect that he may well be more useful than a newborn. Please let me know.

Here are the answers to the required questions. My nephew knows the alphabet, but he can’t type a response (that would just be silly) so I’ll reply for him although I’m not an expert:

1. What photography equipment do you own? — body, lens, flash, etc.
I have attached images of both cameras I have. I also have a disposable.

2. Are you proficient in shooting in manual mode?
Yes. As long as he is shown which button to press. I don’t know what other shooting there is. Digital? Automatic? Stick? I assure you I can teach my nephew to do it.
3. Do you own a laptop?
No, but in all fairness, what’s the difference between a desk top and a lap top? LOCATION. If I take my desk top and put it on my lap it automatically and by definition becomes a lap top. See?
4. What days of the week are you available?
My nephew’s schedule is wide open after morning cartoons and one nap.
5. How far do you live from Wellington, FL?
I don’t know. I left my map in the other car. Can I get back to you on this?
