When hiring a personal assistant, it's important to know they can handle tasks both large and small, and luckily Rick Moranis is totally looking for work right now. Also here to handle small details and big projects alike, Rent A Smile.
Offering to take on almost all of your loathsome responsibilities no matter the size, RAS's a brand new virtual personal assistant remotely handling everything from obnoxious daily activities to more substantial long-term endeavors, claiming their ultimate goal is simply to "make your life better", so...they also make ice cream?! Requestable services start with "personal" favors (avail in monthly packages of 30 or 50, or piecemeal at "a dollar a task"), which cover everything from organizing travel, to booking appointments, to ordering groceries, to even "reading bedtime stories to your children over the phone", but hopefully not "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Dad Who Pays Others to Read His Kids Bedtime Stories Over the Phone". If you need something more Herculean, they also offer to tackle "Projects", with past examples including organizing an extended vacation for a group of 20+ people, planning an entire wedding, and dealing with all aspects of throwing a bday party, from the location, to the decorator, to the entertainment (though if they screw up, you'll be the one looking like a clown).
If you're no pleasure and all business, they'll even complete office-related tasks from researching to spreadsheet-making, saving you from having to one day say "Honey, I Blew Up the Business".
