    Default Had to laugh - car park car washers

    Just nipped out to Sainsburys as I'd run out of coffee beans! and as I parked up (in the far corner ) I noticed there were a few of those car park car washers - the ones with the trolley things they wheel around.

    A couple of them were in sight of me in the next row of cars ahead of me so I sat for a minute watching them and their technique - or complete lack of. Was sat there thinking no way would I ever let one of them wash my car - not even for free, let alone the starting charge of a fiver. They were using skanky cloths, no method to cleaning the car, water that was probably stone cold and no sign of any soap suds. It basically looked like thy were just running the car over with plain cold water with a skanky cloth - one sec it was on the wheels, then next it was on a door!!

    So, got out of the car to head inside and one of them stopped what he was doing and started walking towards me. As he got closer he asked if I would like my car washed. Biting my tongue to stop me saying what first came through my head (i.e no effing way!!) I stopped for a second and turned to look at my car. Bearing in mind that I'd given it a quick clean yesterday as this was all it needed to get it looking sparkly clean again having been sealed and waxed not long ago. I asked him, with a smile on my face, if he thought it looked like it needed cleaned. He walked up to it and looked and basically said, well maybe not! He asked if I did it myself, which I obviously replied yes to. As I was about to head off he then said to me "Maybe next time" to which I just turned round and smiled - again thinking something different I my head.

    Lol!!

    A while ago, Shaz took the Punto to Sainsburys, to say it was absolutely hanging doesn't come close!

    The usual Yell across the car park 'you want car wash?' Shaz threw him a look, looked at her car and shouted back 'you trying to say it's dirty?' He scurried off, obviously fearing shaztribution!

    My sister in law works at an Asda where they do the same. I'll let you guess what they bought to put in the water to wash the cars with.
