    I saw a job posting on oDesk that stated this

    I mean seriously, are you kidding me? I doubt if this some kind of joke.

    Even if it is real and considerate, how awkward is that? "Hey Dad, I'm gonna have a bunch of random people call you. Let me know if you like them."

    I don't think its for some type of pay per call. This person is having good feedback at oDesk and paid over $5,000 so far.

    Ever hear of a caretaker?

    Ever volunteer for the elderly?

    I bet people asked the guy to call the dad for free. In fact, I guarantee it.

    Love for his dad? Sounds like he can't be bothered talking to him himself.

    You can ask people to phone your old man. But to offer payment for it changes the entire relationship.

    New king of old age management by new generation for their parents. The job poster is really genius. He pays a few $$s per hour and saves a lot on sending his father to an old age home.
