Hey everyone, sorry to sound desperate, but I am. I hate begging for help, but because I'm so desperate I'm begging away.

I am taking sociology this semester, and one of our assignments is to write a paper. Part of the assignment is to read a book (which I have had done for awhile now) and interview someone in the service economy (retail, restaurant, maid, etc). Well, the deadline kind of snuck up on me and I haven't done the interview yet. The paper can focus on any aspect of service economy workers, and I would like to do mine on childcare, but at this point I'm so desperate, I'll do any topic.

I can't interview someone I know. So, that's where you guys come in. I am wondering if you have friends that fit these requirements:

~ Must be in the service economy.
~ Must be full time.
~ It'd be a plus if you knew someone who has children in childcare, but it's not a must.
~ Would be available for an interview (lasting about an hour) where they are willing to talk about their job SOMETIME BETWEEN NOW AND TUESDAY (yes, this coming Tuesday, I told you the deadline snuck up on me)
~ If you know of someone who is willing, but not available until later next week, please let me know and I can probably get an extension.
~ The person can't be someone I know. If I've met them or talked to them a time or two, that's fine, but I can't just pick a good friend and interview them for the sake of ease.
~ Oh, and I can do a phone/IM interview for all you long distance friends of mine, so please don't dismiss this request because you're not local.

They will fill need to sign a permission paper and we are required to make a name up for them, so their real name won't show up in the paper.

Thank you all so much for your help!!!

I sent your mom an e-mail to get to you, because I don't have your e-mail address :) So look for that!
