Is there anybody in your family named Bill, Randy or Dave, who’s a dad and can barbecue?
Know of someone in your family who fits the bill of “BBQ Dad”? Well there’s a group of roomates in Spokane, Washington, who are looking for one.
A group of roommates in Spokane, Washington, placed an ad on Craigslist seeking a “generic father figure” to attend their Father’s Day weekend barbecue. The ad reads that “While most of us know how to operate a grill, none of us are prepared to fill the role of ‘BBQ Dad.’ “Duties include: Grilling hamburgers and hot dogs (whilst drinking beer); Bringing your own grill (though this is subject to change, we will provide all of the meat); Refer to all attendees as ‘Big Guy,’ ‘Chief,’ ‘Sport,’ ‘Champ,’ etc. (while drinking beer); Talk about dad things like lawnmowers, building your own deck, Jimmy Buffet. Funny anecdotes are highly encouraged. All whilst drinking beer. Desired experience: A minimum of 18 years experience as a father. A minimum of 10 years grilling experience. An appreciation of a nice, cold beer on a hot summer day.”
The post also states “preference will be given to applicants named Bill, Randy, or Dave.” The post was flagged for removal by Craigslist, but not before the roommates received some emails from interested dad-types.
For more on the story have a look what NBC posted.
