Now hiring: undercover hipster

In what sounds like the plot of an 80s B-film starring Jon Cryer, but with a wacky 90s CraigsList twist:

Private Investigator / Detective Needed for Covert Assignment

Licensed private investigator needed for covert infiltration into a network of hip, socially powerful individuals. The individuals are middle-class, middle-aged and racially diverse. The investigator must have STRONG social skills to gain their confidence, establish friendships, and get welcomed into social circles.

Assignment will be on a solo basis, independent of any agency. It is anticipated to span several months on a sporadic basis, depending on the timing of events as the various relationships evolve. NO physical danger is anticipated.

Please email resume and California license number. Thank you.

  1. What, no requirements for ironic asides and devastatingly witty repartee? No politically poignant facial hair and jewelry? No fancifully decrepit, fashion-forward-backward sense of style?

    I smell a rat!

  2. damn why on earth would anyone want to infiltrate my ‘hood – just ask me for the invite and you can join our boring middle class games.

  3. lol, didn’t catch the “hip” part, definitely not me…the diverse, middle aged and middle class sums me and my ‘hood up though

  4. Great, you’ve blown their cover (preemptively): now “network[s] of hip, socially powerful individuals” are going to be wary of new acquaintances with “STRONG social skills to gain their confidence, establish friendships, and get welcomed into social circles”.

  5. Agent 2009 (aka Daniel Craig-slist), your mission is to infiltrate the Silverlake Trader Joe’s this weekend.
