Awkward Human Contact

Earlier this week Lizzie and I were returning from church and we needed to get gas so I took advantage of the time to get my truck washed... That was our fist mistake.

We went to what I thought was a drive-thru car wash that I could just punch in the code and get a simple wash, but it was not so. We pulled up to the wash that appeared to be closed. "Ok, I'll come back tomorrow," I thought to myself. When out of nowhere comes this guy from the store, obviously perturbed that we would patron the car wash at 10:00 p.m. at night. He asked if I purchased a wash, I said "Yes, deluxe!" He looked back at me like I'm totally insane.... I had to hold back my laughter.

At this point I'm thinking to myself, ok that was weird, maybe their machine was down when I see him soaping a brush.... He's going to wash my truck!!! I thought this was self serve.

After the awkwardness of having to see him through my windows WASHING my truck, he starts the machine for me to drive through. As we are inside we thought we would never see him again because this comes with a blow dry... NOT! He was on the other side with towels.

Needless to say I had to give the man a tip... but he didn't stick around long enough to make it seem natural, so I had to yell at him to come back, about 20 feet, to get a wad of ones I had fished out of my wallet...

I learned a few things that night, one is that I will never come back there again...!
