Caught in the car wash –
I had a very dirty, Mad Max Camry so I decided to stop at a super cute brand new car wash.
As I was pulling into the car wash – a kid guided me onto the conveyor and before I completely pass him – a cute blonde girl comes running out and pointing at my drivers side rear area – he boy shrugged it off and I looked at them like ??? what??? They didn’t stop me so I kept going.
I go thru the drive thru – car in neutral, no brakes – then at the end – and my car won’t move forward.
Next thing I hear the loud grinding and shutting down of something mechanical.
I open my car door, get out and turns out a dog leash had been hanging out the back door (what the blonde girl saw) and it had hooked on the teeth of the conveyor, and was completely looped over 2 teeth plus was under my tire!!
It was soo tight I had to get back into my car twice to back up far enough for it to slack up.
Third try – I got out again, opened the door, finally unhooked the thing – – the ground was crazy slippery, no one was anywhere and I didn’t hear any bells or whistles going off. So I drove forward out of the washer.
Before I left the parking lot -I decided that I needed to say something to the staff – in particular the blonde girl who pointed out the potential issue from the very start.
So,I pulled around and the same kid who let me in the car wash, opened the drive thru window.
Perfect! -I said ” Hey, that girl was right – I totally got stuck in there– but it’s cool because everything was fine– but – she was right and deserves an A for the day.”
The kid kinda stared at me for a second – maybe waiting for me to freak out on him…and apologized.
No harm, no foul – and TOTAL GIRL POWER!!
