Bizarre Video Of Car Service Worker Jet Washing Inside Of Customer's Vehicle Goes Viral
A service worker over at a car wash station took his job a little too seriously, as he was caught jet washing the inside of a customer's vehicle.
Passersby were left in hysterics as they filmed the worker blitzing the boot of an Audi A6, thinking they were looking at someone cleaning up a crime scene.
Just as they thought he'd done enough damage, he then opens the front door to blast the driver's seat, leaving the interior of the car absolutely sodden.
Former valet/stunned witness Sam Edwards shared the clip on social media, explaining that it seemed the staff member had been a little overly enthusiastic about his job.
He said: "The comments [about it being a crime scene clean up] made me laugh but you never know these days. It could have been anything to be honest."
While hundreds of people took to commenting on the post in disbelief, Sam revealed the very innocent explanation. Apparently the cleaner at IMO Car Wash in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, had been asked to do the inside to remove oil and paint spills.
Sam added: "It's a very strange request. If you wanted to clean the inside of your car you wouldn't do it with a pressure washer, I know that. You'd do it by hand with a wet [vacuum].
"Even to get paint off you don't pressure wash it. I was shocked when I saw it. I couldn't believe what I was seeing to be quite honest.
"I was with my missus and we were both sat there gobsmacked [thinking] 'that's not very good! The poor owner of the car.'
"The next thing you know, he's opened the side door and started washing the door and the window inside the car and I was like 'Jesus Christ!'
"That's why I recorded it because I thought no one is going to believe me if I don't. I then locked our car to be quite honest so he couldn't wash the inside of our boot. It would probably have been our luck that he tried to wash it!"
Like Sam said, even taking the request into consideration, it's never a good idea to pressure wash the inside of a car as it could cause damage to the electrics and lead to mould on the seats.
That said, an IMO Car Wash spokesperson offered assurance that no damage had been made to the car.
They said: "We have spoken to the operator who has confirmed that the customer is a regular customer who had specifically requested that our operator attempt to remove some oil and paint spills from his car through jet washing.
"No damage was incurred to the car and the customer was happy with the result and had no issues with the method of removal.
"This was an unusual customer request but carried out in good faith and with no damage to the vehicle."
Guess it's a gold star for the worker, who was only carrying out the job he was asked to do. As for the customers, that must've been one clammy journey home.
