Ironic?

A bucket washer’s bucket without the bucket washer.

So I was talking to someone the other day and they were asking the definition of “bucket washing”.  I was telling them that self serve carwashes usually frown on the practice and there are signs sold that prove it.  But their rebuttal was that they knew what a “bucket washing” was but then said bucket washers are not people that would bring there own supplies like towels, cleaning products like waxes, polishes, etc.  What?!

Now who would be right on this?  How does the not “bucket washing” sign not include people going to your carwash and not using any of your products?  I actually would not have a problem with this if they used my huge lot  but what about people with small lots?  What about when they use your bay?  (Which they always want to do because you don’t want to apply wax in direct sunlight?)  What about paying customers?  What about your business?  What about your products?  What about people that fix their cars in your bays?  I hate that.  Or what about people who eat and throw their crap all over the place?  I don’t like that either.  And I hate chicken bones.  Why can no one throw away chicken bones!!  This is really my problem not debating “bucket washing”.  cwguy out…….

Across the Street

Look what is across the street.  A guy with a pressure washer and a water tank!  I wonder how long he will last?

This was the next day.  This is him filling up his small motor home at the gas station.  I also stole his last “professional business” card at the gas station!  Looks like he takes washing cars seriously!  Corey, has an “all-in-one service” which includes “residential and commercial” “lawncare and mobile detailing”.  I do not understand his name of his “company” though “Rise -N- Shine” unless he as makes breakfast?

New Tires!

I hate buying new tires!  It seems like the biggest waste of money.  So what that they keep you on the road and help you stop.  They are expensive and you seem to replace them all the time.  I hate them!  But my little Honda Fit does use 15″ tires, which is cool.

I do only buy Firestone tires though because they have a higher failure rate!  Or was that just on crappy Ford Explorers tires?

Garbage Bag Love?

I really love garbage bags because you can put all your garbage from around your house in one bag.  Then you take this disposable bag and give it to the garbage engineer (aka – garbage man) and he brings it to the land fill.  At no point in this cycle is there a trip to the car wash!

For or Against Illegal Stuff?

So the building says “STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION CLOSE OUR BORDERS”.  Then someone threw paint on the building… I guess attempting to covering it up or was it to highlight the fact that we need to “CLOSE OUR BORDERS”.  Not really sure how to asses this billboard / building?  Someone please enlighten me.
