Instead of summer camp, I work at a car wash

While so many kids go to camps over the summer, I have something else that I do. I go to the car wash my dad manages in Brooklyn and I sometimes work there. I believe that it is wrong to not be active while you're on vacation.

The summer days are very busy with lots and lots of cars coming in to get cleaned. Besides just washing I also like cleaning the wheels. That takes a little extra work to make them look nice.

Even though it's a car wash, I still get paid and it's decent. I go there three or four days a week and I love it. It is not just work, it is fun too.

When I am working on cleaning up the cars, sometimes I even work the cash register and do other chores for my dad around the place.
