It’s no secret: being a parent can be hard at times

There’s a seemingly infinite amount of ways one can attempt to handle situations with children and often times parents become riddled with self-doubt.

Luckily, there is someone out there who is looking to fulfill all the duties of an ideal parent, but for a price. Jake Orr, a truck driver from South Wales, has decided to change his career to a parent for hire.

Yes, you read that right. Jake has started his very own, “Rent-A-Daddy” business that aims at those looking to fulfill the position of the ideal parent.

In a time where most people are getting laid off or furloughed, Orr believes this is the right time for his business to flourish.

“Has your baby daddy been acting up? Tired of him playing games?” Says Orr in jest on his social media post. “Does he put drugs in his maids before his kids? Get yourself a Rent-A-Daddy!”

Activities such as picking your kid up from school and attending sporting events are just a few of his responsibilities.

However, he makes it clear that there is a limit of “up to three activities of the kids’ choice.”

In addition, Orr has stated his rate will be no less than $30 an hour. He also promises that he will dedicate at least 3 hours of foundational learning that aim to teach practical life skills such as car maintenance and lawn mowing.

“Trying out a new career move to get away from trucks so everybody get onboard and support your boy. Rent-A-Daddy today!” posted Jake Orr on social media.

Orr bundles his services with “private time” which will have him attend huge family gatherings and events, pose for group pictures, and even change his social media status has requested.

He claims this is “negotiable upon application” on the stipulation that the child or children must be asleep or out of the home. One thing to note: Orr does not mention cooking nor cleaning in the ad.

Willing to sign up for Orr’s services? Then you can contact him directly. He does accept various forms of payment including a cash, debit, afterpay, and Zip pay. In terms of cancellation, we’ll let Orr handle that with their clients personally since he hasn’t discussed his breakdown of a refund policy…if there even is one.

If you thought Orr didn’t have more to offer with his startup, then think again

He claims clients are able to take him to dinner, but will be paid by the clients with a 20 per cent surcharge. It sounds like Orr took some time to make sure he covered all the bases!

With all this planning and advertising being laid out, the business remains to be seen with any line of work or clientele. We can’t tell if Orr is being serious with his offer, but we’ll go ahead and entertain the post for what it is.

He at least sounds detailed in his approach and you could tell that he may just be up for the challenge if the right buttons are pushed.

Whatever the intent is, we’re sure getting a laugh at how outrageous it seems to hire a stranger to take care of your little ones.

Most of us have a hard time trusting people we know, let alone complete strangers who offer their help via social media. The ad has since gone viral and has been shared more than 1200 times.
