Worst of Craigslist: The poetic, the odd and the naive
Craigslist is home-base to the weird, the strange, the creepy and the downright perverted (and every once in a while you can get a really awesome deal on a couch!) But who knew that amongst the vulgar expressions, the poor grammer and the sometimes horrendous photos were some poetic gems? It appears some people have taken to Craigslist to vent about their unrequited love to just about anybody willing to listen in hopes of that one person who it seems like they actually had a relationship with in real life happens to stumble upon the personals and know that they are referring to them, and provide them with some closure.

Perhaps because only a very small portion of those listed in the “strictly platonic” section are actually looking for something eve remotely platonic. Rather, you find odd requests in disguise- sort of like this one:
I’m not sure but I think this “wrestling match” which is being sought between two “platonic” soon-to-be friends is sounding pretty homo-erotic.
So, I’m unsure of the legalities when hiring someone to work as a cashier at a bagel store but I’m pretty sure being “sexy” doesn’t give you better smearing skills nor typing skills. However, I do think impending sexual harassment is on the horizon.
And ofcourse, The Worst of Craigslist just wouldn’t be complete without some feet.
Um, this fellow would just like some BBM friends so, if you’re interested feel free to hit him up!
Oh Monique, you come to Craigslist’s “strictly platonic” section with such a modest request, it’s almost kind of adorable.
And finally, for our word(s) of the day:
(Side-point: I think this might be flirting at its’ best.)
