Advertising is done differently in this part of the world.
Sure, we have people dress up in silly costumes and hold signs to draw in customers in the US.
But this is different. This seems much worse.
This is on Avenida Santa Fe at Plaza Italia, one of the busiest parts of the city. These workers are out here it seems every weekday afternoon for hours.
When the light turns red, dude in charge blows the whistle, and the group walks out to proudly display they ads. As the light is about to change, dude blows whistle, and everyone walks back to the sidewalk. Repeat.
These guys look like they are ready for Jamaica holidays lying on a beach and not lifting their arms for a while.
In the first post in this odd jobs series, I told you about a job I would actually enjoy as a dog walker (as long as no one starts enforcing the new law that you have to pick up dog poo).
This job… not so much.
5 Reasons I Would Hate This Job
- Breathing all of the exhaust from this high-traffic area.
- Sore arms.
- Bored to death within 10 minutes.
- Melting into a pool of sweat during the heat of the summer.
- The horn-honking in this city, especially on Santa Fe is out of control. The incessant honking would probably drive me insane, and I would be laying on the ground in the fetal position.
