We’re low on firewood, so I thought I’d check out Craigslist to see if anyone was giving the stuff away. That’s when I stumbled upon the following ad:
free 1 day of work (Los Angeles)

Hello I would like to ask someone to give an opportunity to my husband. He has 10 years of experience working as a painter. He knows how to paint with sprayers, rolls, brushes, and cloths. He also has two years of experience working staining fine furniture. He needs a permanent job. I understand the economy and business is extremely slow. If there’s anyone that may know someone that is hiring for a long period of time. We would appreciate. He also has some experience driving forklift. Any job as a painter, stainer or forklift will do! Christmas is coming and we would like to have a secure coming New Year! If there’s anyone that can give him an opportunity please email us back. The only bad thing is that he doesn’t have a work permit and his English is not so great. I will give 1 day free to demonstrate my work.Thank you
Kind of a kick to the gut. A reminder of how lucky some of us are.
