Students ask hitman to run them over (to get out of an exam)

What's the most desperate thing you've ever done to avoid an exam? Once in school I rubbed ink eraser onto my eyelids (I was allergic) so that my eyelids would swell up and I wouldn't have to do some jogging in P.E. At the time, I thought that was pretty desperate. Turns out, I was wrong.

Whatever you've done to avoid exams, it's not as desperate as these two uni students, who tried to employ a "Hit Man" to run them over so they could get out of taking their finals year tests.

The two female students took out an advert online, politely asking that the hit man refrain from killing them with their car, even though there would be no monetary compensation for the job.

"No time wasters."

"Please do not kill"

The advert, posted on Craigslist asked that the hit man provide their own car for the task, which might put some potential hitmen off. As well as this, the only compensation offered was described as "hitting two lovely ladies by vehicle w/permission".

They were essentially hoping to find the kind of person who browses Craigslist in the immediate vicinity of the University of Georgia hoping to find some "lovely ladies" they could run over and injure slightly but not kill.

And they wanted this person to be so enthusiastic about doing this, they wouldn't mind doing it with their own car, for no money. Like how you might take an unpaid internship at a law firm, these two wanted to find an intern hitman trying to get his foot in the door.

Skilled tradesman / artisans only

The two students were smart enough to post the advert in the skilled tradesman / artisan jobs section of the site, because when you're asking a hitman to injure but not kill you, you sure as hell better hire an artisanal hitman. You need that hitman to be at the top of their game.

If you fit this (very specific) bill and happen to also want to run over a couple of "lovely ladies by vehicle w/permission" you unfortunately still won't be able to get in contact, as the post has been removed by Craigslist.

The final year students most likely had to resort to studying for their exams after their last ditch attempt to get run over by a car failed.
