Dare I Say, A Brilliant Business Opportunity

I've got until the end of the week to do my online traffic school and get the results to my local court. I've had it on my list of things to do for about eight weeks now, ever since I paid the outrageously huge fine for driving at the speed of light. It's looming over me now, like all icky tasks do that we put off and put off until we have no choice but to complete them and cross them off our freakin' list.

Here's what I'm thinking, though. We're always looking for ways to make extra cash, right? I mean, except for those immune from the current economic woes, like the drunken AIG executives and the prostitute-using Citibank leaders, we all could use a bit more, right? [Wouldn't it be too funny if someone from Citibank took umbrage at my accusation? Notice I didn't say anything about AIG being offended 'cause, come on, it's true.]

Someone should hire themselves out to take those pesky online traffic courses for other people. Post it on craigslist under "etc." in the "Jobs" category. Along with the Adult Fantasy Phone Artist and Stage Combat Instructor, why not Traffic School Student? Frankly, I'd be willing to pay $25 through my PayPal for that.

You just might be on to something.

If Citibank takes umbrage and passes along a savings to you, send them my way. They are our mortgage company. :)

Your business idea is inspired.
