I've been looking for jobs on Gumtree and stumbled across this ad:

"I require the best PA in [town name]. I am a successful, busy entrepreneur with multiple business interests. Not looking for conventional or dull. Must be bright, confident, able to organise both personal and business life, be attractive, sassy, good to be around and able to handle all manner of complicated situations. Will need to be able to travel at short notice and be confident in company. VERY attractive Salary and package completely negotiable for the right person. Immediate start as previous incumbent burnt out with the stress"

Ignoring the fact I am neither attractive, nor "sassy" (whatever that is), AIBU to think that this is perhaps the least attractive job prospect on the planet?

What kind of idiot would advertise that the previous incumbent is now a gibbering wreck who wished they'd never applied for the job? Nah - unless it's paying £100k for a 40 hour week I don't think I'd bother. Something fishy about it anyway......

I'd play along and try to find out more!
