You Can Now Hire a ‘Professional Arguer’ on Taobao to Fight Your Petty Battles While You Relax
Arguing can be very taxing to a lot of people, luckily, a service is now being offered on China’s e-commerce site Taobao that can save you from all that trouble.
Red Star News, a news outlet in China, recently tried to hire the professional arguer service to see how the process works. According to the report, the fee for a professional arguer ranges from 5 Chinese yuan ($0.74 cents) to 20 yuan ($2.95), as translated by AsiaOne.
The “hired professional” would then shout at a target through a phone call or send out a text message. However, before one can render such services, the client would have to undergo a short screening process first and answer several questions including: “what kind of argument you want, what you want to argue about, what dialect you need to use, and how long you want to argue for,” the report explained.
Then, once the screening process is completed, the client pays for the service using WeChat or QQ. While the process is pretty much straightforward, there are matters in this service that seem to be quite confusing.
Some of the questions that may arise include: Will the company behind the service refund the money paid for the service if the professional loses the argument? Does the rate cover only one call/message or for the entire length of the argument? If the target person decides to file a case against the professional arguer, who will be the person in trouble — the client or the hired person?
