finally a day warm enough to wash the car, yay!

The line was long. Really long. Like wait 20 minutes in line long.

When it's finally my turn, I plunk my quarters in and get to work, mainly just to get the sand/salt off and underneath.

I finish and notice there's about 5 minutes left on the stall, so I walk to the car behind me to tell them 5 minutes was on me . When I approach the car, the man in the car rolls his window down and says " it's about TIME. you didn't need to take so long! I've been waiting for an hour!"

I smiled and let him know that although there was time left on the machine, looking at it from *this* angle (squinting and leaning awkwardly sideways), I thought it might need another rinse.. and proceeded to stand in the stall, spraying the wall for 4 1/2 minutes .

mean fucker.

I love you man

Seriously, I would have done the same thing. It is not your fault that everyone wanted to wash their car today and it is not your fault that he had to wait just like you did. What a jerk!

Also love you
