Agent wanted for talented author

I am currently looking for an agent to handle my affairs with
publishers. You need to be absolutely qualified and have experience in
this field, with a resume and a portfolio of people you have helped
publish in the past.

You must know that I do not pay you up front for my work you get paid
when I get paid and my writing is published. I have done a lot of
research so please no gimmicks. you either want to do it and love it or
you just are not qualified for the job. very simple.

I am a laid back guy, and I love to write and may have a lot of ideas
for other books outside of my specific genre, are you ready to tackle
this task if so contact me here. If you try one over on me and or
attempt to steal my work which is copy written Then the laid back just
does not apply
.

Hmm, I wonder how many hits he'll get.

I'm guessing...

ZERO!

My guess is that he will be an irresistible draw for scammers.

I've met so many of those that I wouldn't say necessarily arrogant, but unaware of white male privilege: yes. They just sort of assume, after having been the apple of the parental eye, and being coaxed and jockeyed through school, that the world is waiting for them to add their wisdom to it.

This is Craigslist we're talking about. I bet he gets a few responses. Not to his standards...but responses.

You'd think a talented author would know about punctuation and capital letters at the beginning of sentences.

Dear Talented Author:

I want and love books that utilize proper grammar, capitalization, and other common rules of the English language. As this doesn't seem to be the case for you, I am sad to say I'm not qualified.

Sincerely,
Agent

I'd love to clue him in on this but I fear he won't believe me. Ah well.
