The Rental Society

Renting a car for a short term use or renting a home is a normal phenomenon in our society. You’ll see skyscrapers in many of the cities across our country full of rental apartments and in the suburbs, you’ll find plenty of homes ready to be rented for those who may be looking for a new home. Car rentals make sense for the on the go passenger who wants the freedom of travel without the hassle of calling for a car service

But our society has changed to fearing any type of commitment. While there is sometimes a reason to rent things, some of these things are kind of crazy!

My husband and I were talking about different types of rentals the other day, and I was stunned at the things that you can rent nowadays. One of the companies you may be familiar with is Rent the Runway. No need to purchase clothes when you can rent them.


You might need to Rent the Runway when you rent a date. Not feeling courageous enough to tell mom or dad that you haven’t found the “one” yet? Well, no worries, you can rent a date! Or, feeling like you can’t make it on your own at a social event? You can now rent a date instead!. I know that there are jokes that prostitution is one of the oldest occupations, but this takes a slight spin on this, while implying that it is just for impressions and not for anything more than looking good in front of people.

Personal Cuddlers

Did that date not suit your fancy? Well, you can get a little more intimate without getting intimate! Have someone hug you by renting a personal cuddler.


Want a furry friend without the hassle? No worries! You can rent one of those too! I truly worry about the animals that have to go through this craziness as animals do like schedule, certain smells, a safe space to feel at home. This just feels like animal abuse to truck an animal from one home to another.


While you have your rented pet, date and clothing, you can also hire people to follow you around to take pictures of you. Make sure you put on make up. Is that rented too?

A crowd of people

That crowd of people waiting for you, you rented them too! Can you imagine having all those people fawning over you? Well, you paid for them!

Mourners for a Funeral

Was your family member a stinker, but you don’t want to let anyone know? Well, you can rent people to make them (or you) feel more important than they were.

Line Holders

Want the latest iPhone, new game or whatever is on your list? You can rent someone to stand in line for you. Renting a human has never been so easy.

Rent a Pool

Yes, you can rent out someone’s pool for a pool party. This sounds like a liability waiting to happen for a homeowner.

Rent A Yard

Don’t like the dog park? You can rent out someone’s yard for your dog to play in all by themselves! Make sure you pick up after your pooch!

Rent a Driveaway

Not sure where to park? Well, you can rent someone’s driveway so that you won’t get towed!

Rent a Tire

Don’t want to pay for new tires of your car? Well, you can rent them! Not sure what happens when you get another nail in that tire and have to replace that one too!
