Girl Bribed by Dad to Quit Facebook


How far would you go to get someone at home off Facebook? If you’re like me, Facebook is a daily occurrence and can honestly say has become somewhat of an addiction…only somewhat though, seriously.

Well according to the Daily Dot, one parent put together an actual contract that would forbid his daughter to go on the social networking site for approximately 4.5 months, in exchange for some cash.

Rachel Baier, a 14-year old from Wellesley, Mass., signed a contract that was put together by her dad Paul, who clearly took the time to draft it properly (picture above).

The contract calls for an initial payment of $50 that would be received in April and then the remaining $150 would be paid in June.  Is this guy a sports agent? Dude’s a pro!

Actually, Paul Baier is a VP at a Boston-area energy firm, though he states that the whole thing was his daughter’s idea.

“It was her idea,” Baier told the Daily Dot. “She wants to earn money and also finds Facebook a distraction and a waste of time sometimes. She plans to go back on after the 6 months is over.”

Paul also gets access to her Facebook account in order to change the password as he sees fit, in case ol’ Rachel decides she wants back into her account.

      LOL yes he did…I’d have to cough up a lot more than that to bribe my step-son.

    I like how it says that the daughter will use the money “for the purpose of stuff”

      Or the bit about “He/she” when referencing the father could be a loophole for her to escape the contract. That being said it will probably be worth every penny.

    $200? psh. I would have asked for $500.
