Richie Walker, 34, was ecstatic to find a master bedroom in a house for rent at the absurdly low price of only $1 (technically 1 euro, but the exchange rate is comparable). However, as with everything in life there is a catch because nothing is free and if someone says it’s free they’re probably plotting to murder you. In the ad placed by the 63-year-old landlord, he requests that whoever rents his master bedroom “treat him as a domestic and financial slave.”
You might be thinking “ew,” but that’s actually pretty sweet. I’d imagine it’s like having your own personal butler, except you pay him rent and said butler is willing to go out and buy things for you too. “Butler, bring me a can of Sprite and then scurry out to the store to buy me a pair of brand new socks, and don’t dilly-dally on the way if you please.” How great is that? You don’t have to lift a finger. Ever. I am the queen of being lazy and this is my dream come true.
The advert reads: “I have a lovely house in Fulham with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and garden. I am willing to offer the master bedroom suite free to a lady or young couple who will make and treat me like a slave.
“The master bedroom has a large ensuite bathroom and a small attached room which can be used a study/dressing room. A bit about me. I am 63-year-old professional man.
“I have been a slave before and those were the happiest days of my life. I do not seek an intimate or sexual relationship and see myself as a domestic and financial slave.”(via)
For those of you who got excited about renting this London flat, sorry not sorry – the ad’s already been taken down for not being “entirely suitable for the site.”
