Clean this Dude’s Fridge for $30

Surfing the “Gigs” section of Craigslist is almost as fun as reading the Missed Connections personals. People seem willing to pay for anything, like this Lower East Sider who recently broke up with his girlfriend. The fridge devolved into a nasty mess since the incident, and he “doesn’t want to deal with it.”

Would you clean the insides for $30?

To the listing:

Pretty simple, I have a 1br on LES but broke up with my girlfriend a couple weeks ago and have been away since then until yesterday. Now the fridge smells terrible and I don’t want to deal with it. I just want someone to throw everything in there away (I’m sure plenty of it is good but I don’t care) and put it all in trash bags and clean the fridge so it smells normal again. I’d imagine this would take 45 minutes at most, maybe 15 to empty it and 30 to clean but probably significantly less. But it does smell awful (though the apartment doesn’t smell at all unless the fridge is opened) so be prepared. Anyway email me your number and time availability tomorrow, I’m kind of busy but will be in the neighborhood and want this done 1-5pm so it doesn’t smell bad when I get wine for my date tomorrow night. Just be not sketchy and trustworthy because I will be nearby with keys and don’t want any drama.

Also: I have other things I’d like cleaned in the apartment: IE my shower so if this works out there may be other opportunities in the future, or possibly even a regular thing.

RE:EDIT: Ok so I’m having a serious case of insomnia tonight and after getting more than 10 responses in like 2 hours in the middle of the night I realized the reason is because 30 dollars for 45 minutes work is kind of insanely high amount of money. But nonetheless I won’t drop the price or tack on any serious duties. All I’m going to ask in addition to the fridge is just to tidy up the apartment. There’s beer bottles and things scattered around and garbage (but not anything gross, just bottles and paper stuff basically) under the sink and I’d like taken downstairs. I can’t imagine that will take more than 15 minutes and it will be easy, so I’d still estimate the “gig” will probably take around an hour or less. And as I said before: no I don’t have cleaning supplies but also no you don’t need to be a professional maid, I can’t imagine this will be terribly difficult.

Sorta reminds us of this gem…
