Featured Odd Job: Gum Buster
You know when you're chewing gum and you get that uncontrollable urge to stick it under something? Yeah, I know you do. We all do it. And I can safely say it's not disgusting, you should actually keep doing it. Because If you don't, you'll put the Gum Busters out of business. That's right, the Gum Busters.
Back in 1998, a Dutch chemist created the Gum Cart, a little dry steaming machine that conveniently removes gum from its eclectic locations in just 5 seconds. This was specifically designed to solve the 'Gum Pollution' problem plaguing the west. GumBusters was birthed out of the creation; the rest is history.
Based all around the western world including England, Austria, Switzerland, and the U.S., GumBusters gets countless contracts to remove gum anywhere from amusement parks to sports stadiums. Just when I thought this was the city workers job...except not really. Who'd fucking know this was an actual international business that will never go out of business. As long as people keep instinctively sticking gum under public benches and tables, you can count on running into a Gum Buster.
