Valentine’s Day is coming up and if you find yourself without a sweetheart, one entrepreneur hopes you will consider becoming his client. In a sign of the times, a downsized Homeland Security agent is offering to be an escort, driver, or do odd jobs in his new business named ‘Rent-A-Gent™.’
Rene van Uum is the Texas man finding an interesting way to help make ends meet with his ‘Rent-A-Gent™’ business. The Garland man is now online with his unusual business and his Website describes a “educated, mature, responsible, tri-lingual, well traveled, internet-savvy, articulate, resourceful, calculating, punctual, husband & father of twin daughters” willing to do odd jobs to support his family.
The 50-year-old has photographs and descriptions of some of the jobs he can do on the website: everything from oil changes to washing windows or pets. He has helped clients with deliveries and errands; and also worked as a driver and companion on some road trips.
This ‘Rent-A-Gent™ business owner is also available as an escort or date! His wife, Becky, is supportive as long as she approves the event and client in advance. I did notice on the site the rates for an upcoming party or special function for women are $25.00 per hour, and for men, $125.00 per hour!
This enterprising baby boomer also provides companionship for senior citizens who want visitors or some help when it comes to shopping or getting to appointments. Gift shopping is another service the ‘Rent-A-Gent™’ offers. The rate for most jobs is $25.00 an hour.
