Ok... So in NY we had a very mild Feb. day, 50 degrees and sunny. So I got through with work a little early and decided to take my truck and get it washed, so I drive 10min. out of my way to the self serv car wash and find the line wrapped around the parking lot. I get in line and wait my turn (about 15min.) Well I have $30 in cash on me, a $10 and a $20, bummer, all I need is $5 in quarters to clean the rig. So I say "fuck it" and toss in the $10..... The damn machine spits out 3 quarters and makes a bad noise.... Red out of service light pops on... SHIT! The fucker ate $9.75 of mine and now I am stuck with the $20. No way in hell I am trying that in the only other quarter machine working.

So I pull out of the bay and drive down the street to a gas station where I but a coke and get change. Back to the line at the car wash.. Yeah, I know at this point I should have cut my losses and gone home but I was pissed and stubborn. I wait my 15min. and ironically pull in the same bay. Get up to the machines and get my money... Going good.

I ge to washing my truck thinking about all the car wash stories and chuckling to myself about all you tools on ARFCOM and my luck so far..... The freaking hose to the soap brush gets hung up on my bumper... I give it a yank and I hear "CRACK" Shit, I snapped a piece of plastic on the bumper cover...

I couldn't help but laugh. The stories here at ARFCOM just may have saved me from having a stroke today. You should have seen the looks on the people waiting in line. They must have thought I was crazy, I just busted my truck and I am standing there laughing. I also ended up getting soap in my eye to top off my wonderful car wash experience.

$14.25 car wash

A broken bumper cover

Soap in my eye

What kind of carwash story is this ? No college aged girls on all fours and bending over while vacuuming out their cars' floorboards.

Congrats. on the 5k.

I usually wait till spring time to wash my car. All that spring rain cleans the car off real nice

Best season average if neither makes it into post season. Best post season average if they both make it. If one makes it and the other doesn't they win automatically.

Posted jersey pics and a 6er to the winner. Deal.

For all those that don't know of last years bet.... Don't ask.

Interesting.

Where I come from, good car wash stories involve tight white t-shirts and lots of suds.

But this was still entertaining.
