This 25-year-old woman wants to save parents from Taylor Swift concerts

She’ll go instead. It’s every parent’s dream.

WE DON’T KNOW IF you’ve gathered, but Taylor Swift is kind of a big deal right now.

The singer has sold out pretty much every date announced for her US tour so far, with more shows to go on sale next week.

And with all those parents buying their children concert tickets for Christmas, there will be a lot of miserable parents at those concerts. Which is where this 25-year-old Philadelphia woman swoops in.

The unnamed woman posted an ad on Craigslist late last week, advertising herself as a sort of concert babysitter.


She offered to save harassed parents from the chore of going to see Taylor Swift with their children, because she’s nice like that (and also a massive Swift fan).

Here’s what she makes of the deal:

This is great for you, because you don’t have to go to something that you don’t understand, and I get the opportunity of a lifetime to see Taylor Swift!

She then lists the reasons why the perusing parent should let her take their kids to Taylor Swift, which include:

1. I know all the words to all her songs and can sing along with your kids, unlike you.
3. Your kids won’t have to be embarrassed of you! This is really what’s most important to your kids. They don’t have to be with someone standing there bored with ear plugs in because I will be loud and singing along with them and forcing them to have the best time ever. (JK there will be no force, we will be fast friends and they will have a GREAT time all because Taylor will be there!)
7. Willing to be part of a synchronised dance to Shake It Off.
8. Also completely okay with them standing there and ignoring me and pretending we aren’t together at all, and then escorting them to your car so that you can take them home.

She makes a pretty good case. Come on parents, help this lady out.
