Maneesh Sethi hires a “slapper” at $8 an hour. Her role: to slap him if he goes on Facebook. As a self-employed computer programmer and blogger, Maneesh needs someone in authority to prevent him wasting time on social networking sites. So he put up an advert on Craigslist. Within an hour, he received 20 emails in response. His makeshift boss has increased Maneesh’s productivity by 98%. He has since engaged different women to slap him, keeping him on track.
