College just SEEMS stressful . . . compared to real life, where you have actual responsibilities like a job.  But apparently school seems SO stressful these days, kids would rather be horribly MAIMED than deal with it.


Last week, two female college students at the University of Georgia posted an ad on Craigslist with the subject, "Hit Man Wanted." 


But they weren't looking to kill anyone.  They just wanted someone willing to hit them with a CAR . . . so they could get out of taking their finals.


The girl who posted it wrote, quote, "I am looking for someone to run my friend and I over with their car.  We do not want to die, we just want to be injured enough to get out of taking our finals here at UGA.  Please do not kill."


Then she posted it in the "skilled trades" section.  And since they're both students and don't have any money, she said that in return, you'd, quote, "[get to hit] two lovely ladies by vehicle, with permission."


We don't know if anyone actually responded to the ad, or if it was just a joke.  But Craigslist eventually yanked it for violating their "you-can't-hire-hitmen" policy.
