Working at the car wash (oh oh, yeah yeah)

They have managed to find another job to do that’s more interesting than putting up a building!

Welcome to the really-quite-rusty-and-not-particularly-shiny new Salisbury Road Car Wash!!!

Previously the truck had to stand on the ground, so couldn’t get the bottom of his socks properly rinsed off. Problem solved!

They do seem to be having a bit of a problem with the mud. They did make another stunning attempt to solve the problem. Last week they laid tarmac over the middle of the site where all the delivery trucks go. If the delivery trucks didn’t have to get their feet muddy, then the mud wouldn’t spread, right? After all, there aren’t any other vehicles that might need to cross the tarmac, thereby spreading the mud.

That worked beautifully while it was lovely and dry and they didn’t need to worry about the mud anyway.

Then it rained.

The bit between the red lines is roughly where their very nice black tarmac is.

Buried under the mud. Already.

Well that worked. Good job guys.

P.S. On a different topic, someone eventually noticed how bad the University sign over the folly looked. They’ve fixed it! Yay!

Digger clearly afraid of getting its toes wet. So safely up on pile of tarmac.

And it gets worse. Later in the day the truck arrived to carry away the tarmac. So the digger started loading the pile of tarmac into the truck. While still sitting on the pile, digging it out from under himself. WTF?

They pulled the same stunt with a smaller digger a few months back when digging a hole. They looked so surprised when the digger fell into the hole. Can’t imagine why that happened…
