The News Minute | July 2, 2014 | 06:06 pm IST  Gone are the times when being a professional meant you were restricted to one of those several serious nine-to-five jobs.  Today, you can turn anything you are good at into a professional. Take a cue from this woman in New York who recently posted an ad on Craigslist, a classified advertisement website, for herself as a professional bridesmaid.  Before you dismiss it as an unimportant work, go through her reasons. The job requires a lot from the professional than meets the eye, and she seems to have considerable experience too.  In fact so inspiring was her advertisement, that Jezebel not only carried a story on it, but the author of the report also wrote down her version of a similar ad- ‘your next Embarrassing Drunk Friend’- in the copy.   Here is the professional bridesmaid’s advertisement in full.  ‘When all my friends started getting engaged - I decided to make new friends. So I did - but then they got engaged also and for what felt like the hundredth time, I was asked to be a bridesmaid. This year alone, i've been a bridesmaid 4 times. That's 4 different chiffon dresses, 4 different bachelorette parties filled with tequila shots and guys in thong underwear twerking way too close to my face, 4 different pre-wedding pep talks to the bride about how this is the happiest day of her life and marriage, probably, is just like riding a bike: a little shaky at first but then she'll get the hang of it.Right, she'll ask as she wipes off the mascara stained tears from her perfectly airbrushed face. Right, i'll say though I don't really know. I only know what I've seen and that's a beautiful looking bride walking down, down, down the aisle one, two, three, four times so far this year. So let me be there for you, this time if:-You don't have any other girlfriends except your third cousin, twice removed, who is often found sticking her tongue down an empty bottle of red wine.- Your fiance has an extra groomsmen and you're looking to even things out so your pictures don't look funny and there's not one single guy walking down the aisle by himself - You need someone to take control and make sure bridesmaid #4 buys her dress on time and doesn't show up 3 hours late the day of the wedding or paint her nails lime green. Bridesmaid skills i'm exceptionally good at:- Holding up the 18 layers of your dress so that you can pee with ease on your wedding day- Catching the bouquet and then following that moment up with my best Miss America-like "Omg, I can't believe this" speech.- Doing the electric and the cha cha slide.- Responding in a timely manner to pre-wedding email chains created by other bridesmaids and the Maid of Honor ’
