The vice president of a Massachusetts energy company is expending his resources to keep his daughter off Facebook.

Paul Baier whipped up a Facebook Deactivation Agreement that he made for his 14-year-old daughter Rachel to quit the social site. In exchange for a Facebook-less five months, Baier is paying her $200 in installments. He posted a photo of the dinky contract (see below) on his blog.

One glance at the document could merit a click on the "Like" button. "I plan to use the money for the following purposes: stuff," Rachel writes.

But before you throw shade at dad, get this: it was Rachel's doing. "It was her idea," Paul 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."

While she won't see a cent till her first payment of $50 on April 26, the self-made Facebook fast could make for a very interesting status update come summer.

I like how she plans to use the money for "stuff". I like "stuff" too! It's wonderful.
