Is it that you want to clean my car?

I often harp on about the fact that I see so many people just hanging around obviously unemployed but not appearing to be making any effort to get out there and just do something.  The missed smurf opportunity is a case in point.

For example, being in Manilva during the day, there is nowhere here to get your car cleaned, you have to go down the road to Sabinillas where you book your car in and wait a couple of hours for it to be finished.  I don't have that sort of time to waste in a morning so I end up driving around with a filthy car most of the time as I just don't get round to getting it cleaned.  Why does no-one offer a home car cleaning service?

Well, today I came across a flyer advertising such a service.  At last!  But it made me laugh as they have obviously used Google translate to translate the Spanish flyer into English.

It's time to give them a call so I just hope their cleaning skills are better than their English ;)

I love the fact that I don't have to move house to get my car cleaned:

It really is surprising just what you can do if you think about it & watch the fields to earn a few bob. (or it that cents, or whatever!).
Some of the enterprising some mates of mine have done is amazing.
In his bank he mentioned just how dusty his bank was, to be be told "we are between cleaners". He did it that afternoon free of charge. He now cleans a dozen banks & they pay him good money & he's 73!
