The mother of a University of Cambridge student has helped to squash the myth that students are layabouts, by posting an advert for a “blonde female” to accompany her son to an upcoming May ball, because he's too busy to look for a date himself.
Only identifying herself as Margot, most likely to save her son from any embarrassment at her bizarre-sounding post, the woman defends the advert by writing he son is “fully occupied by school works."The woman is oddly aware of her son’s ‘type’, and stipulates the woman must be “blonde, talkative,” and aged between "19 and 22".
Cambridge University Press, a department of the university, is the world's oldest publishing house and the second-largest university press in the world.
The annual battle first took place in 1829 and and sets the two university boat clubs against each other in a four-and-a-quarter-mile race to the finish line near Chiswick Bridge.However, if registering via an authorised centre, you may need to pay an administration fee – speak directly with the centre to confirm costs.It’s always best to check with your school/college first if they can administer the assessment for you to avoid this cost.Listed under the ‘Jobs – Student & Graduate’ section of Gumtree, the advert unsettlingly states that the ‘Contract type’ is ‘temporary'.Perhaps anticipating that the post may attract some joke responses, Margot adds only a “female” with an “honest and sincere attitude toward this opportunity” should contact her.
