Not the topless car wash they expected
August 20, 2007
SHIRLEY, N.Y. --Male drivers who paid $5 for a topless car wash ended up getting hosed.
Young women held up signs along a parkway advertising the car wash on Sunday and telling the drivers where to go. But hidden behind a big blue tarp, it was shirtless male firefighters who were washing the cars.
"A little bit of a bait-and-switch," Assistant Chief Donald Prince admitted. "All the guys back there are all topless."
Female drivers didn't seem to mind the shirtless firefighters. Male drivers, though, felt they were getting burned.
Mike Matias was hugely disappointed when a man soaped up and rinsed his car. But he said at least his $5 went to a good cause: All the money raised will benefit school booster clubs and charities, the Brookhaven fire department said.
