Happy New Year from Mesquite NV - My 2008 Ends Stuck in the Carwash

Looking forward to the New Year, I thought I would end the year by cleaning off my desk then going to the local car wash before my 1:30 appointment.  Think positive and be ready for some hard work in 2009.

It looked pretty busy so I used my carwash time formula ( 5 minutes X each car ahead of me + 5 minutes for the 3 already in the car wash tunnel ) and figured I would make my 1:30 appointment.

When I was finally at the head of the line, waiting for the car ahead of me to move into the car wash tunnel - it stopped.  With cars piled behind me, bumper to bumper, nothing to do but wait.  The attendants were all in there working on the thing that pulls the cars through - after 10 minutes or so, the car ahead of me moved and they signaled me in.

I rolled the window down and asked;

"Are you sure it is fixed?  I don't want to get stuck in there!"

    "Yes, ma'm, it was just hung up, all fixed, working fine!"

So I pulled in, turned the interior light on and started reading the paper.  All of that swooshing water and whirling brushes and mops were making me too dizzy to read - so I just sat there.

View of Mesquite for 40 minutes in the car washThis was taking a very long time.

I peered ahead through the mops and soapy water swirling on my car and saw no one.

I peeked out the back window through the mops and soapy water swirling on my car and saw no one.

The swooshing water, the whirling brushes, the mops and brushes going around and around, covering my car.

I had been in there for 20 minutes with my car in the same spot.  I started getting creeped out, thought about getting out of the car - can't see in there, brushes coming at me....

Nope!  Too Scary.

I didn't want to get washed to death and I was pretty clean already.

I tried to google the car wash on my cell phone to get their number - but I didn't know the name of the place.

So I called my daughter in Mississippi to look it up online, she called right back with the number.

After a few tries, someone answered the phone -

    "Yes ma'm, how can I help you?"

"Well, I seem to be stuck in your carwash for the last 30 minutes!"

Silence.  Then,

    "Umm...we are trying to fix the mechanism that pulls the cars through."

"Well, can you turn off the washer part?  It is taking the paint off my car and it is creepy in here!"

Silence.  Then,

    "Oh.  OK."

Long story short - Too Late! - They got me out of there, I missed my appointment by 1 hour, but they cheerfully refunded my 22 bucks, and I have a really clean car to start 2009!

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR - THANKS TO ALL FOR A GOOD 2008!
