Canberra, where the Government sends men to shower your car with mud

By johnboy 19 February 2013 24

mud on car

There were some blokes on my street today doing something to the drains, presumably at the behest of the ACT Government.

Imagine my thrill on walking out to the car, in a hurry to get somewhere of course, to discover whatever they were doing had covered the car in mud.

I don’t expect much from this Government, but resisting the urge to come around and shower my car with mud was something I thought they could manage.

Off to the carwash I go.

Should any flaming paper bags filled with dog faeces turn up on any important doorsteps this week it’s got nothing to do with me.

Do you have a bumper sticker saying ‘my other car is a bicycle’ ?

Perhaps the ACT Govt has picked up on the RiotACT’s ongoing obsession with dodgy parking and has instigated draconian mud-based measures to stamp out the practice? Not insinuating that you parked badly…much.

That was done for free? Did you know that people on Sydney’s north shore pay to have their 4WD wagons sprayed with mud to give them that “bushie” look?

Ah,,, one of those fortunate people who have a wagon as a second car. This leaves the Lexus for the evening golf game.

If it’s not mud, you could say that your car goes like a shower of s***!

Isn’t there a scene in ‘Vacation’ where the family truckster gets similarly soiled?

This a solid Aussie car, mines up 500,000km and still going strong and without the $8.000 exhaust sensors or the $5000 fuel monitors etc etc.

PS Johnboy if your ever in need of drivers side mirror let me know I have one in that colour in my back shed.

That sucks, sure, but it could just be rain + dust which is more likely given what I can see from the picture, although that may be due to poor quality.
Can’t do much about dust other than not dig.

Even if it is mud, Blaming the government is a bit harsh, believe it or not, most people are arseholes and that’s not the government’s fault, Even if they employed them.
Guess all you can do is find out who specifically contracted them and tell them to pick a different, less lazy, group of laborers next time.

Someone was cruelly muderated.

And here I was thinking JB gallivanted around on a big red hipster bike.

What kind of hipster drives an EF Falcon?

and I thought this was going to another of the bad parking threads!!

tuco 7:28 pm 19 Feb 13

Working in drains hey? Sure it’s mud …?

caf 6:54 pm 19 Feb 13

Given that they’ve been doing a lot of sewer work in the inner north lately, you hope it’s just mud…

FXST01 6:44 pm 19 Feb 13

You sure it’s just mud JB?

Cruel but fair the Gallagher boys

Wasn’t a recreation of Ja Rule being Punk’d was it?
