Updated on November 28, 2011

How to turn anything to cash?

When I was watching the TV last night, I found an interesting program talking about how to turn anything to cash,

and it’s easy you can do it by renting things from your home on those websites; you can nearly rent anything like your ice box, leader, Car or even more you can rent your bathroom.

It’s really great turning stuff laying around your house were you rarely use them to cash...

isn't such a bad idea regarding the fact that I would never rent my bathroom to a complete stranger that’s will be awkward ,

except later I was really shocked when they started to say that it’s not just about renting stuff you can even rent a friend ha!!!!

Now you can just go online and sign to one of those websites and have a friend charged by hour although ...IT MUSN'T BE A DATE,

plus this service is available world wide, and you can use your rented friend in any activity you want such as take them

to the beach, museums, parties, gym, café or even just to introduce them to people, so what ever activity you will do, you can now rent a friend to share this activity with.

On the following day I couldn’t help my self not to search for this on the internet, and it was true lots of those websites offering the service of renting a friend

were an estimated number for just one website was 285,000 friends available for rent worldwide and more than 2,600 paid members. After seeing those numbers made me search more about where it came from.

later I found that renting a friend was started in Japan and they don’t just rent you a friend they can offer you some one to be a fill in person in divorce, death or even some one to pretend to be a family member and that was popular for Japanese single parents,they hire spouses to fill in for school events.

Tolerance and understanding goes along way

Rethinking of those shocking facts, makes me wonder will the notion of the friend implies “understanding, support, and shared history” start to lose its meaning?

is it because it’s hard to find a good friend this days or may be it’s getting harder to meet people or else those long hour of working gives people limited time to meet new people or

even because people turn into more independent they don’t want to ties up there life with friends,

actually I don’t know there might be several reasons for that matter in addition maybe one day, the majority of us will be living our lives online, and this becomes the only way to physically meet new people.

Are we starting to lose our humanity or we don’t want to do the effort of making friends any more ?….We should rethink our way of living

"friendship" can be bought and sold like a commodity is disgusting and shows inherent lack of comprehension of the true meaning of friendship.

Renting a friend would never give me the laughs, good times and deep friendship that help in the bad times that you accumulate over time with real friends

.As we grow up it is tough to make friend you have mostly colleges but making friends worth the effort, because going with a complete stranger will not be safe and a rented friend really don’t care about you or your problems.

What happened to things money can’t buy?

Renting a friend really got me scared of the future , what shall I do if that became the only way to have friends will I tell my future upset son when he will have a fight with his friend ;

“Don worry about it sweetie you can rent anther one”

I know it is tough to have or keep a good friend … But when you have a good friend who really cares, support....understand who you really are and giving you the time to listen to your problems were also trying his/her best finding the solution.

That really would worth the effort and will surely be much much better than talking with a person while he is looking to his watch and tell you ahhh sorry your time is up…

“Would you like another hour?

      Wouldn't you think that this is almost like prostitution? Selling a service to please another, sound familiar? It's amazing what people do these days. I sure hope we're far off from your future analysis. Thanks for the eye opening hub!
