Shit People Leave At Carwashes

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
  • Strollers
  • 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
  • Trash
  • Garmin
  • Magellans
  • Cell phones – many times in working condition
  • Stereos
  • 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.

That is AMAZING. The people never came back for their laptops? What do they do, just take the stuff out of their car to clean it and then leave the stuff out? WOW!

Ann said...

not to take your kids side but.... you said play quietly, you did not specify neatly.

I think I may have to start hanging out at the car wash and see who leaves what behind.

It might just be a good idea to hang out and see what those idiots leave behind.

Yes, people really leave this stuff.

Either they throw it in the trash or they leave it laying right next to the trash.

And yes, they do hang onto the stuff for a while, to give the owner a chance to reclaim their property.

So, if you've been to a car wash and you're missing your diamond ring or your xbox 360 or any damn thing else, make sure you call or return to the car wash to ask for your shit.

That is freaking amazing. I cannot even imagine. I mean, I mis place a lot of stuff, all the time (hubby says I have some things not connecting in my brain) but I cannot imagine leaving my laptop.

Then again, I'm the woman who left her wedding ring on the bathroom counter at work where it got stolen.

So maybe I would leave my laptop. So sad!

Shit. I wonder if anyone's ever left their kid there?
