Northbourne Ave and dirty windscreens

By luther_bendross - 13 October 2008 86

Have I missed something?  Is there some mysterious mud storm down Northbourne that causes people’s windscreens to get that dirrrty (thanks Xtina) that they MUST be cleaned at every intersection?  Do I live in a mud vaccuum where I do not get touched by said storm and also have the skills to clean my own windscreen when it gets dirrrty?

The questions I pose are thus:
1. If anyone has paid for such a service, how much was it?  Was it worth it?
2. Are all the dudes in cahootz?  Are there bloods/crips rivalries for the more prestigious intersections?  Likewise, do you need a buskers ‘licence’ to perform such a community service?

And most importantly:
3. If you out there reading this are one of these car detailing experts, how much coin are you making out there?

What’s Your opinion?

Yes because in Canberra, it’s peak hour traffic all the time, they are guaranteed the same amount of money from each person, and rosie-bubz sees and knows all.

Like I said, you yourself don’t think the reward is worth the effort so it’s a moot point anyway.

Yep thats why i joined this site so i can prove people such as yourself wrong. 🙂
anyway, i never said the reward wasnt worth the effort, i jut said i wouldnt do it.

These people are scammers. They recieve their dole money, which is fair enough, but then, say they wash 3 windscreen at every light change (if red light every 5 min) and work an 8 hour day, thats $288 per day which equals $1440 for a 5 day week.
Thats more than i earn, and yes i could go and wash windscreen myself and i would most probably make a whole lot more than i currently do, but i wouldnt put myself through that. You would have to be on drugs to do that, and thats exactly what these guys are on.

Your stats are so overinflated it beggars belief.

When have you seen anyone do 3 windscreens per light change, let alone regularly, even during peak hour traffic?

my stats are so overinflated..??
so you are saying there is only one light change every 15 minutes, they work a 3 hour day and 2 days per week?
Well even if that was the case they would still be earning rouglhy $200 a week

I regularly see them clean 2 -4 windscreens per light change during peak hours.
And, although i have never timed it, i am 99% sure there is a light change more than once every 5 mins (which is what i stated above as a rough idea) which means they would be earning possible more than what i said

Yup. I get the lag, but I just thought my computer was out to get me ….
