News, but not the serious kind
I’m workin’ at the carwash man, in Afghanistan…
Blog Guy, I’m about to graduate from college in December, and I could use some career advice. I know you’re great at that.
Well, it depends on what you studied, of course. We need doctors, teachers, engineers….
I majored in creative writing and film studies.
Oh. Have you considered the carwash?
Yeah, but I have only a B-minus average, so the better carwashes won’t even look at me.
Not to worry. There’s always the carwash in Afghanistan, as you can see in these photos. Plenty of new business, too, since the average car in Kabul lasts four and a half minutes.
Awesome! Thanks for the advice! Say, why are these pictures in black and white, anyway?
I believe they ARE in color, but that’s just how color looks in Afghanistan.
Thanks, I can’t wait… You want rust-proofing too, sir?
