Fund Raising Car Washes?

Can someone explain this one to me? I am not sure if this is a regional phenomenon but here in Texas they have fund raising car washes where they have kids in a parking lot washing cars and people with signs standing at the road waving potential customers in.

Here is the problem I have - they tend to have young girls in bathing suits either holding the signs or waving the cars in. If they are not wearing bathing suits - they are wearing the butt hugger shorts. Is this not a pedophiles dream car wash or what?

What can the parents be thinking of these orginizations? Am I just being a fuddy duddy?

Heh... Got the same thing up here...

Usually not in bathing suits this time of year, but yes, in the summer.

It happens everywhere. What's even worse is when you have a daughter thats the same age as those girls or worse yet her friends are doing the car wash. You drive by and your wife is like, "that could be your daughter out there."

It's usually the cheerleading squad or a girls HS team. I think it's pretty obvious why...

Left out this bit. I've also seen the local fire dept pull this stunt. They close down a local street near the firehouse and give "Free" carwashes to everyone that goes by. Then they demand a donation. The whole thing reminds me of a Gangster operation.

You've got 3-4 firemen in the road blocking all traffic. They hose you down regardless of desire or open windows. Then wait for you to "Give" a donation before moving out of the way.

I respect the hell out of the Fire Department and anyone who runs into a Burning building for NO PAY. But come-on this is a shake-down and no better than BlackMail or extortion.

They have them here in SoCal. too. Everything from school groups, to church organizations, to funding funeral costs.

I keep my truck dirty just so I can keep a look out for the little High School bikini car wash spots.

It SUCKS when the football team is out there doing their fund raisers. I don't stop for them... no cheerleaders... no washy.
