Everybody needs to vent out some time or another. You can now pay a man £7 an hour just to have him listen to you complain!

Need to let off steam?

There comes a time when you feel like nobody’s available to listen to what you have to say. Don’t worry! In Japan, Takanobu Nishimoto started a service called “Ossan Rental” in Tokyo. It’s all about middle-aged men (Ossan) who will listen to all of your problems for a small fee. That’s not all! They will also do chores or give you life advice!

All applicants are screened and interviewed, to make sure they don’t have a long-winded way with words. Their profiles are looked into very well so as to ensure they are right for the job and that clients are looked after properly.

So next time you have to listen to someone vent, you might as well ask for a compensation!
