Posted:I just want everyone here to know that today I drove into the car wash under a partly cloudy sky.

And when it spat me out 3 minutes later, it was raining all over my freshly cleaned car.

My condolences on the fact that your clean car got... wet.

Posted:i work at a servo that has a car wash - i have sold people car washes, and seen them go thru, and then park near a pump to squeegee the windows - in the pouring rain. i don't understand. i think the car wash has magical powers to suck people in to thinking that they absolutely have to wash their car right that second!!!

ubblol

if at first you do succeed, try not to look too astonished!

Posted:Umm, Den... I've been to MI several times. Ad from what I've seen, you don't exist unless you have at *least* one car. It's crazy. No busses! No public Transport!! *dies*

Sorry to hear that your car got rained on after you got it washed. I've washed my car (er, the parents' car) in the rain before. But that was just odd.

that applies to like 95% of the USA actually - have a car or do nothing except sit at home and starve to death.



that is part of the reason I am loving Berlin. It is almost a pain in the neck to have a car here, and you can pretty much get where you are going on the public transit faster than driving there and spending 10 minutes looking for a place to park you car and then walking the 4 blocks from there to where you are going. And if it rains, you are not going to get any less wet taking a car because of this.

Posted:Same here. All the midwest suburban moms who love their SUV's too much all voted against the levy for public transit here, which would have been such a big step...grrrrr.
But Lightning, if you think your weather sucks, try coming to Cincinnati. It was in the 80's last week, rained all weekend, was 40 today, it's supposed to frost in the next couple days, and then get up to 70 by Friday. MAKE UP YOUR FREAKING MIND, DAMN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think we had a snow day a couple weeks ago, too.
But rain on a clean car sucks, too. there is dirt in rain- that's why your car looks all splotchy after it rains.
