today at lunch i decided i'd wash my car. it was VERY dirty. so, i felt what better to make me feel good than a nice clean car? that is until i drive home on the wet/slush/snow/sanded/nasty roads. stupid winter.
so, i go to the carwash. i put my car in park and attempted to pay for the carwash. first, i slid my debit card in the slot. wouldn't work. you're supposed to put it in and take it out quick, but i was like three inches too far away and didn't feel like opening my door, so i reached as far as my arm would go. dumb idea. when that didn't work, i attempted to put cash in the cash slip. it wouldn't take my crispy ten dollar bill. oookay. i started to get irritated. i tried my debit card again. didn't work. the distance was killing me, but thinking it could possibly be my bent up debit card, i reached for the FLAT credit card. i tried that and as i was trying to pull it out fast so it would read it, it flew out of my hands onto the ground below. by this time, i was really pissed off. there was a car behind me and i just wanted to get my damn car washed. the voice recording on the machine was YELLING at me and i was getting frustrated. i then tried a five dollar bill and some ones, and it accepted it this time - thankyouverymuch. so, before i put the car in neutral and let it take me away on my carwash ride, i OPENED THE DOOR (like i should have in the first place) and looked on the ground for my credit card. hmmm, it was nowhere to be found. well, since the carwash moves the car itself, you are on a 'car moving thingie'. there are open slots below the vehicles where the 'car moving thingie' operates. does this make sense? anyways, my card had went down there. well, since it was nowhere around on the ground above, i came to the conclusion that's where it went. i went through the car wash JUST FUMING about this. i even came back around once i was done and got out of the car to see if i could see it. no such luck. frick.
so, now i have to call and cancel that card and get a different one. it is really enough to piss a girl right off.
