Just a quick rant to ease some frustration. I went to Country Club Car Wash today to have my nasty car washed. It was one of those that guide your car along, which I hate and I didn’t know that until I’d already purchased the car wash or I wouldn’t have done it. Anyway, I’m driving into the car wash and all of the sudden, my left front hub cap breaks in half from the dumb guider thing. This lady comes running out and motions for me to roll my window down then says in this snotty, condescending voice, “You’re not supposed to steer. You just broke your tire. You have to read the sign!” I then ask, “Uhh, what sign?” She points. Oh, you mean that tiny little sign on the sidewalk to my left? Gee, I’m sorry, I was staring at the giant flashing green sign in front of me that said Drive forward. Silly me for not craning my neck to the side to check for further instructions. So what does this lady do? She picks up my broken pieces of hub cap and hands them back to me and tells me to be more careful! I was so pissed off. So now I have a barely clean car and a broken wheel. Nice. I mean, I know it was technically my fault. I get that. But the lady was so obnoxious about it that it made me even madder. Okay, I was hoping that ranting here would make me feel better. It didn’t. I’m still annoyed…


  1. If it makes you feel better, I was going through the car wash a couple of days ago, and the flapper thingy grabbed my antenna so hard that it actually pulled that part of the car out of position! Why couldn’t it have just broken the antenna? I know it says remove your antenna, but honestly I have been through that thing five plus times without a problem, and never even knew my antenna came off until recently. Ugh. I feel your pain.

    I lost my side mirror in a car wash. This was in the same type of car wash. They weren’t about to pay for anything.
