Ask your boss to wash instead.

#1, Ask to wash your boss instead. Just by reordering your exact words, I turned a "firing offense" into a strategy for raises and promotions.

Isn't OP supposed only to do things described in her contract? Shouldn't there be a list of duties? It is USA, so the law system is supposed to work. Or is slavery legal in USA (again)?

This is probably not a union job so no contract spelling out the employee duties. Maybe the store was having a promotional or a fund raiser. I had my windshield washed by a couple of bank employees once, working for donations for charity.

I would just like to point out, that this wasn't being done for free. If you're hourly, in less you clocked out, you're still being paid. If you were clocked it, it was illegal for you to HAVE to stay. If you're paid salary, you get to do whatever the f they want you to do for the same pay. Also, I worked at a grocery store. One time I had to go work at the store next door (that was more of a general store) because we were slow, and the managers were friends. I was confused.

84, let's say, if I work as a programmer, I do not expect to lift grates, unload furniture or drag 50kg safe onto fifth floor alone via stairs. That's because I have different set of skills and suddenly doing heavy lifting might be harmful for my health, plus I won't be very good at it. Same goes for suddenly washing cars, or suddenly working at a store (It might not be "harmful for your health", but since it isn't your primary skill, there's a good chance that you won't do a very good). As I understand that's what contracts/list of duties for. Still, I don't live in USA< so I have no idea how you're doing things there.

I am assuming, according to all the context we have, that OP is a hot chick. A car wash can sell ANYTHING. I'm not justifying anything, but this is the boss's approach and as a client I wouldn't mind :) he's a terrible boss. FYL OP. :(

#15, hah! You should see the tips I get when I remember to "tend the garden" down there and find a top that flatters my moobs! They give me a fortune to do extra work on the wheels and tires. I tell them I can give them a "rim job" for 50 bucks and they always go for it.

#28 Thank you for tending to that garden of yours. Pubes sticking out of those skivvies are never a pretty sight. You're not the only one that's not into zig zags! :P

I didn't question whether you were right or not, in both your comments (plural - yes, #21 & #23 = 2 commentS). I'm not sure you can quite call it irony, but it's pretty close when you're talking about 'people who declare themselves as "educated"' while following that by 'In what way is that condescending?'

You weren't doing it for free If he was still paying you your hourly wage or whatever. It could help bring in more customers, but that wasn't in your job description so I don't believe you should have had to do it.

They don't but how long would they go without a paycheck while HR decides to fire the boss and give them their job back. Or if they go the court route, how long in court with no paycheck and the lawyers bill?

I think it's the owners of the cars that don't have to pay for the car wash. (Little do they know, it's a verbal agreement to a two years contract. Signed in blood)
