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 – the 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!!
