Does the rear wiper pull away enough to get a squeegee behind without touching the wiper?

Since Acadia's butt and rear window get dusty or dirty quickly, I clean the rear window with a squeegee every time I fill up. I've noticed that the rear wiper doesn't pull away from the window much. Not to about 90 degrees like many other vehicles. I find that either the last wash or squeegee swipe under the wiper touches the wiper or bumps against it.

What's your experience?
Or, am I missing something?

By the way, the first time it rained and I used the rear wiper, I thought it was most cool and clever that the fluid squirts out from two spots on the blade rather than down from the top or up from the pivot. Takes a bit of getting used to the swipe the rear blade makes, but it is a sufficient clearing and works very well.

I've already broken a rear wiper when I was cleaning the rear window with a towel. The dealer did replace it for free (GM likely paid under warranty). Yes it does seem a bit closer than other SUV rear window wipers I've pulled out to clean.

I was warned about the not far pull out wipers from a fellow on-liner.......I'll keep it in mind when cleaning. I do frequent a gas station that cleans windows (a real jewel, huh!!) while filling my car.....I guess I'll have to teach them too.
