Buying Value Added Friends - Mon, 10/1/12 9:13 PM
Well, I guess I think I've near seen everything now on the net. Therapists conducting sessions via e-mail, Webcam couples counciling, Psychic and Tarot readings via the net. Now a guy selling a service on E-bay that you can e-mail him 3 times a week and he'll respond with his opinion and be your friend.  He has over 40 years of experience listening to peoples problems as his credentials. As if most of us here don't.

This must be the new, innovative, service economy that technology opens when disruptive technologies displace the old ways of doing things we've been led to believe that opens new opportunities. Next someone is going to be offering a virtual restaurant service on E-bay. Order something off the on-line menu and have high-res photos of the food delivered for .99 cents each to your e-mail. Cheaper then getting dressed up and going to a restaurant and gas. Not to mention very low calories and fat. Also gives a new meaning to tipping the server.

Huh. I thought eBay was no longer allowing non-tangible things to be sold. Could've sworn I saw something just the other day about it.

You actually expect a man to keep to himself and just listen while you vent? Even if you paid him?

Yes...I will pay $6. All he needs to do is say "uh huh" "I agree" you're right" every few days. I'll renew.

You mean you expect him to pay attention, suspend everything and really listen? No distractions?
 
Wow.

No...he won't have to read it. Then he will write in a...

***New Jersey residents must add $75 service charge per week***

I will have to have someone else join as well. Then he can solve everything...and I will save lots of money...and get to say "see I am right"

My brother is a Shrink in the SF Bay area, a number of years ago I asked him how could he listen to all the crap all day, he replied, "I don't"
