Dubai classifieds weirdos

I’ve spent some time looking at the classifieds section lately to help out someone looking for a job and I’ve come across some weird ads.

*****

Looking to hire housemaid/nanny for a small family of 8.

Whoa, I wonder what a big family means for this advertiser!

*****

Wanted maid to take care of a 3 year old toddler while we both work. Must know: cleaning,  ironing, car washing and cooking. No boyfriends, NO SRI LANKANS!

Wow madame, you must have your reasons but that just doesn’t sound right!

****

Dear Sir/Madame, if you are looking for a hardener/house boy, please call this number: xx-xxxx-xxx.

Speechless.

*****

Housemaid/nanny wanted

We will provide visa, accommodation in your own bedroom with private bathroom in a brand new apartment with beautiful pool and gym.

As if the maid will have time to frolic in the pool and gym!

*****

Expat moving back to own country. Looking to sell a 2 year old bedroom set immediately. Original price at 3,000 dhs, selling for 2,000dhs. No time wasters! No offers! No discounts!

  1. Indeed weird ads but then again one has to look at the context and the culture. A family of 8 might be huge for westerners but in some cultures that’s a just as small as you can get: dad, mom, grandpa, grandma, 2 kids, one uncle, an aunt there you have it. I seriously laughed at some of those ads because I can identify with some of them.
