I felt something wrong with this post

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

If I were advertising for a PA and also required housework done I would advertise for two positions seperately. Trying to conflate these two dissimilar positions casts the guy in a very bad light IMO. Also if I were advertising for a PA, and requiring fairly advanced ability I would be asking for references and details of past experience. Pesonally I would not consider the position as it appears highly exploitative, and suspect, particularly with the added controls put on ones peronal life. It just appears to me like he his advertising for a highly qualified "rent wife".

The guy in the OP sounds like a creep, to say the least.

And what Kuroneko said.

Sir Potato ?
Lol; Has he been promoted ? Head-potato ? :lol:

However, OT, this ad was correctly identified as being "not quite right". The salary may be negociable according to experience, but umm no, you don't expect your PA to iron your shirts, do your cooking, washing and cleaning. (And do you need to specify the kingsize bed ? )

Agree with Kuroneko. This is not a serious position, this is rent-a maid/secretary/companion. It has exploitation written all over it.

I cannot see anything wrong with this add/post, cause it is very simular to the one I wanted to post,,, except I was going to advertise the monthly salary $150 and the extras available, like being able to sleep with the boss.

One immediate issue was noted;
Absolute clarity on the 24/7 Inter-web promise and also confirmed gigabytes available.

I think this job would be great if it were a sexy woman advertising. Can we get him to recuse himself or do an op in Bangkok at least?

All cats are grey in the dark.

Samouth, I think richard made you neurotic, keep calm and have a cup of tea.
