The customer can give up uncomfortable tasks or receive on-site support, by buying himself time, pleasure or advantages. The sometimes bizarre and deterring scenarios on the website show everyday moments in a not so distant fiction, in which one or the other visitor can find oneself. This project aims to address the question of how human behavior could change through intensive use of outsourcing services.
