Hangover Helpers: Every Parent's Dream

Have you ever gotten really drunk and thought up an idea, written it down, and in the morning called your best friend to tell them about it? You pick up the phone, you dial (quietly) and then you whisper in your loudest hang-over voice, I had the best idea ever last night, it’s right here on this piece of paper that I can’t see because I’m too hung over. Then you drop the paper with the fantastic idea in a puddle of spilled beer and it’s gone forever. You should have called Hangover Helpers instead.

At the University of Colorado, for a mere 15 dollars per roommate, these guys will come over, bring you breakfast burritos and Gatorade, and clean up your mess. This leaves you plenty of time to recover from your hangover without having to worry about anything but feeling better; and after all, aren’t you worth a little pampering?

No doubt hundreds of parents will be excited to learn that part of the money they sent little Sally for her education has gone to ensure she doesn’t have to clean up after herself and her friends when a party has gotten a little out of hand. Yep, thanks to their generosity, Sally, and many other students just like her, can sit back, chug Gatorade and let someone else clean up the plates, beer cans and puke.

I think I can safely speak for all parents when I say, “Thank you Hangover Helpers. It’s people like you that make it easier for my kid to earn a bachelors in business and look forward to a promising career at McDonalds. There is nothing a parent enjoys more than seeing their child act irresponsibly and not have to suffer any of the consequences for their actions.”

Now we just need to find someone with enough guts to hang out under couches and beds in frat houses and start the business: “Condom When You Need One”.

      Stan- OMG (Oh My Googleskills)! That's hilarious. I chose 333 because your shrink was on that road!

      333 - Why, yes, it is! I thought of you today when I realized my shrink is on 333rd Ave!

      Stan- I was surprised when I came across this story that you weren't in the mix somewhere. This idea had you written all over it!

      rotl- too true! I can see it now, McDonald's, PayLess, and Hangover Helpers. Hmm. Hangover Helpers sound a lot like Hamburger Helpers, which ironically makes me feel like I have a hangover.

      Chris- I heard the United States government was giving away money randomly. Now, granted, it's not their money, but I think if you sign up to help give it away, you can at least FEEL like a philanthropist.

      Cleaning up crap can be another government job for you, one that won't make you feel as great, but it's a life-time of rewarding work. Good luck if you take up this one, though, the dogs on the hill don't take to kindly to crap-cleaners.

      Wow... I guess now I have seen it all. They can make a lot of money by franchising to big state schools all over the country.

      Sue,

      Great to see you expanding your repertoire of poo related matters to vomit. You seem to have truly found your niche (OK so I did a hub on peeing and another on farting, but that's two out of fifty...)

      This is not helping me in my search for a new career...

      And yes, in Lemon County you can pay to have people come and clean up after your dogs - another possible path.

      I want to be a philanthropist, but I can't find any openings anywhere.

      Chris
