Do My Stuff

DomystuffI find this appealing — an eBay-like service where people post their chores they don’t want to do:

Whether is cleaning out your gutters, buffing your car or being a good father to your children, you can post it up. People then bid down on your task, until you select someone to do the work. You then place your money in escrow with the company, until the task is accomplished and your new slave assistant gets paid. It’s possible to limit bidding by location, and, well, that’s it.

It’s called and if it catches on (the way eBay has done), it could become one of those indepensible things of daily life (for some).  One wonders, however, how far people will take the phrase "do my stuff".
