Really Bad Day
The snow was coming down steadily and had been for several hours. My
partner had been plowing for a couple of hours already, and I had
just changed places with him and started to clear a new lot. I always
plow the access points to the lot last to keep people out of my way,
so here I am just getting started on this lot, which just happens to
be a car wash, and this car stops in the middle of the street and
starts honking and flashing his lights.
My partner gets out thinking that the guy is having car trouble, so
he goes to help while I continue plowing. He comes back and says,"
you're not gonna believe it, he wants to wash his car." I said, "Does
he realize it's 28 degrees?" My partner replies, "Yes, he knows but
he just has to try it." Well, I clear him a path to the nearest wash
bay and continue to clear the lot, which takes roughly 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, after washing his car, the guy goes into the managers
office to talk over a cup of coffee. I leave the lot and go down the
street to another customer.
About 30 minutes later, I drive by the wash and notice the same car
is still there with its owner prying on his now frozen doors. By the
way this is a Taurus with plastic door handles. I pick up my cell
phone and beep the wash manager. He calls me back, and I tell him
what is going on. Just as he steps outside, still talking to me on
the phone, the guy breaks the door handle and goes flying into a snow
drift loosing his hat and glasses. After crawling around in the snow,
he finds his hat, full of snow, and moments later his glasses. Now
the manager is on the scene. He uses the hot pressure washer to steam
open the passenger side door and let the guy in. Now he starts the
car to help melt the ice, and again goes inside for coffee.
I am now plowing the lot directly across the street, and I have been
watching the whole thing from a distance. My phone rings again and
guess what? He let it run out of gas. The manager takes a gas can up
the street, brings back a couple of gallons of gas and puts it in the
car himself , we don't want to take any chances now, we just want
this guy to get home before he does some real damage. The guy starts
his car again, leaves the wash and drives away.
Does the story end here............ NO!!!!!
He stops at the nearest gas station, fills the car and drives away
with the nozzle still in the tank tearing the pump from its base.
Talk about your bad days!!!
