I took the day off from work. What does that mean? Sleeping in late, going out for breakfast, getting a carwash. Fun times.
I needed gas, and it was about time for a carwash, and I'm too big of a sucker to pass up saving $1 off the automatic carwash by purchasing it when I'm buying gas. $8 instead of $9 for a $2 carwash?! YES PLEASE! (I assume $2 is a fair price for the service that is actually provided. I don't actually know a place where an automatic carwash can be found for such a price.)
So, I pull up to the carwash, use the keypad to enter the magic number from my receipt. The door opens… and there's an older guy standing in the middle of the carwash with a garden hose. He waves me in.
My first though was "are you serious?! the carwash is broken and i just paid $8 to have some guy spray my car down with a garden hose?!" I hesitated. He waved me in again. I pulled forward slowly, and he got back to work — spraying off leaves and dirt from the walls and windows of the carwash.
I was relieved.
I locked my doors anyway.
