An Open Letter to the Guy that Wipes My Car Down with Damp Towels after I Get a Car Wash

Dear Sir,

I’m sorry that I drove away really fast from the automatic car wash when you tried to dry my car with your damp, dirty towels.  It wasn’t that I don’t want you wiping my car down with those greasy towels and get those pesky drops of water that the giant blow dryer doesn’t get, it’s just that I know you expect a few bucks for the privilege and I didn’t have any cash on me.

I saw your big brown eyes of confusion/disappointment as I hit the gas right after the big blinky sign in the car wash went from red to green  –  okaying my getaway.  I had been planning it for a few minutes when I first saw you on the other side of the giant blue soapy sponges.

I knew I had no cash, but when the automatic fuel pump asked me if I wanted a Super Wash for $8.00, who I am I to say no?  Plus, I come from a land where you dry your car from the automatic car wash by driving very fast for a few blocks, not by a human being.  This must be some strange Chicago thing that I can’t get used to, even after 18 years.

So, in conclusion, please accept my apology for not using your services – maybe next time.

Sincerely, 

Tiffany

  1. Or, just do like me, roll the window down and say “that’s ok vato, I brought my own towels.”
