Dave and Mike had a problem: The bros (in every sense of the word) have been told that they must bring dates to their cousin’s upcoming wedding in order to prevent them from “harassing” the bride’s friends all night.

In a throwback to the roaring 20s, Maneesh Sethi recruited a slapper off CL to give him a hand in staying on task, and saw his productivity quadrupule.
Said Sethi, “How could I leverage Craigslist to improve my efficiency. To me, the answer was obvious: I hired a girl on Craigslist to slap me in the face everytime I used Facebook.”
