Seattle mom seeks prom date in Craigslist ad

Only weeks after a report came out saying the
average cost to fund your kid’s prom night costs more than
what I paid for my first car, a Seattle mom is willing to
shell out hundreds of dollars on an escort for her
daughter.

The mom, who wished to remain anonymous, according to 97.3 KIRO FM’s
Dori Monson Show
, wrote in her Craigslist ad: “My husband
and I
are looking to hire four prom dates for my daughter and
her
three friends. All the gals are very good looking, trim,
friendly, and fun. We can trade photos.”

Whoa! If that was my mom, I would be mortified, which
might explain why she wouldn’t indulge Dori in an
interview. Her daughter was probably threatening her
within an inch of her life, or at least that’s what I
imagine as a former daughter of prom age.

While I’m mortified for the daughter, Dori thinks the
whole thing is just creepy.

“As the father of daughters, this is horrifying to
me…Why can’t they find a date to prom?”

It’s not clear the motive for the post, maybe the boys at
the school are sub-par at best, maybe the girl is really
shy, or maybe the parents just want their daughter to come
away with some stellar photos.

The mother did say she would rather keep quiet about the
whole thing. Well guess what mom, too late for that!

My daughter and her friends attend a small private
school
in Seattle. The Senior Prom is June 2nd. My husband and I
are looking to hire four prom dates for my daughter and
her
three friends. All the gals are very good looking, trim,
friendly, and fun. We can trade photos. The time
commitment
would be seven hours..5pm to midnight paid at $50 per
hour.
If you are taller than 6feet, good looking, fit and
outgoing, please send your photo to me as soon as
possible.
You will be required to interview, if selected, you will
also need to meet for a one hour strategy session and tux
fitting in advance of prom night. All expenses will be
paid
by us, tux rental, pre-party at down town high rise condo,
limo, Senior dinner, and prom. To be clear..all expenses
paid, no compensation for interview or tux fitting, $350
for
seven hours on Prom night.

I look forward to hearing from you.
