First of all, just let me say I woke up sicker than a dog. I have a fever. My throat hurts. My head hurts. The core of my very being hurts.
My request to my children this morning:
Please, please play or watch cartoons nice and quietly. I am very, very sick. We promise, we promise. So I slept till 11.
I would like to know when please play nicely became synonymous with please fuck up my entire house as much as humanly possible in the next 2 hours. Really, I’d like to know. Maybe more on that later. I might do a post about this if I can do it sanely enough without wanting to physically harm my children (for those of you who don’t “get” me, this is a joke. Only a joke. No children will be harmed. Physically or otherwise. Hopefully.).
Anyway… Onto that list
Shit People Leave At Carwashes
- XBox 360
- Playstation 3
- Game Cubes
- Buckets of quarters
- A Vacuum that retails for about $175
- Sony point and shoot camera…Brand new in box
- Laptops – 3 to be exact
- Huge CD cases full of hundreds of DVD’s and others full of CD’s
- Cell phones – many times in working condition
- DVD players – portable and home
- Bluetooths or would that be Blueteeth? (LOTS of these)
In addition, they vacuum up money, diamond rings, etc.
My husband is a manager at a car wash. He’s been there for a very long time, and the spoils he finds!!
This is only a partial list. Just some of the shit I could think up right off the top of my head. And of course everything is left at the carwash for weeks to see if someone will claim them. Most times they don’t.
Lesson to be learned? Make sure you look carefully to make sure you haven’t left something valuable behind or thrown it in the trash.
Here’s a picture of my husband while working at the carwash. People who go to this carwash are extra special and do not know how to line up for either of the 2 automatic carwashes they have. An employee has to stand there and direct traffic. Fucking epic.
