Brazil bird s*** scam !
Just walking along copacobana beech when bird s*** - appeared on jims right shoe. As if by magic, a show shine guy appeared and theatrically pointed it out to Jim , and kindly offered to clean it off.jim took him up on the offer , just as he realised it was his mate who had squired a yellow bird s*** like substance on his shoe ( he had just felt a guy had been too close to him seconds earlier).
As he finished he demanded $30! ( £6)! - gave him $20 - laughed about it and watched them double team another tourist 2 minutes later.
If only these guys would put there imagination and talent into something that actually helped people !
Jim had a it of a moan, until I pointed out that it had cost him nothing because I had given him the $20!
It was worth it for the laugh
