Watch Out For The Evil Vacuums!

Posted 06-26-2013 at 01:32 PM by DebB831

Another grand event at the car wash today; drunk guy at midnight decided our vacuum was a horrible creature and should be killed.

15-20 minutes later, it was half destroyed by smashing it with a piece of 2x4. He did have to take a few breaks to lay down because he was so dizzy.

Best part of the story...he was so drunk he left his wallet with Drivers License behind so the cops knew exactly who it was. Good, because there is a large $$$ amount of damage.

I guess you just have to get use to waiting...

From our break in back in January, I had given up hope of the police doing anything about it. They know who did it, but the video footage we had from our cameras did not have a "clear" picture of the license plate. So, now over nine months later we got a call saying that they are sending the video footage in to a company to have them enhance it to see if they can get a clearer view of the plate number.

Just seems so strange to me, a person who wants things done yesterday,...

Soda Pop Machines Don't Take Fifty Cent Pieces

Posted 04-30-2012 at 05:03 PM by DebB831

At least the Pepsi 12oz can machine we have at our car wash doesn't. I started to think how many people carry .50 pieces on them. I know I don't have any in my purse, car or jacket pockets. Maybe more people do than I think.

Twice in one week the pop machine outside of our car wash has been jammed with a .50 piece. Two different people trying the same type of coin? Same person thinking, the first time must have been a fluke it didn't work? The same person who enjoys loosing...

What a busted change machine looks like...

Posted 01-28-2012 at 06:20 PM by DebB831

So this is what it looks like when someone takes a grinder to your change machine. Yeah, definitely have to get a brand new one and those are not cheap!
We have insurance, but with a $500 deductible, that is a lot of car washes to just make that back.

The Life and Times of Owning A Car Wash...or Two

So, since the break in this morning, I have decided to write about what we see, hear and do at the local car washes. We have two, both in neighboring towns. The closest is fifteen minutes from our house, the other around 25 minutes. Luckily, my FIL who is part owner of one of them, takes care of them during the week so we don't have to run down to them every day to clean, repair, collect quarters, etc.

Now, before anyone thinks we must be rich beyond our wildest imaginations with...
