Copywriter wanted for 18 bucks an hour, will not get access to gun.

Quite possibly, the most insane Craigslist ad ever. Copy writer - marketing materials - $18/hour

The twist: while you are writing copy you will also fill the role of security guard, working 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. We will buy your uniform. You won’t carry a gun. Applicants must be able to pass a drug screen as well as a criminal background check. The security guard spends most of the shift seated at the reception desk, and there will be very minimal security duties. Practically the entire shift you will be able to focus on writing copy – you’ll just happen to be wearing a uniform.

Yep, we are stretched thin. Good thing there's no gun, for that salary the copywriter might end up shooting themselves. Hat tip Caffeinated

A copywriter that passes a drug screening? Good luck :)

A copywriter by day and a security guard by night?

What stop there?

Why not toss in a buck more an hour and also get a janitor, mail room clerk and messenger?

I've always found that a criminal background makes for a damn fine copywriter - drugged or not.

Good copywriting is a criminal offence.

Good copywriting is criminally underrated these days.

But they give you an entire uniform! Most places, you just get badly-made briefs.

Unless you are working on a Hanes Briefs commerical - then the briefs may be well made, butt.....
