Unbelievable... Obnoxious Car Wash Owner.

So, the car's looking worst for wear. Mrs B and I head down to the AGIP in Leimbach to fill the car and while I'm there, get it washed.

I go around to the car wash and get in line. A lady is also waiting in front of me and the car wash has long finished cleaning a blue Audi.

Only, no one is there so the car remains in the car wash. I wait a few minutes and then get out and look around if the owner is in sight. Perhaps there smoking a fag and have not seen that their car is ready. Nobody.

I go back into the station and tell them someone has left their car in the car wash, has disappeared and everyone is waiting.

"OK, I'll move it." --- Aah. It's the station owners car. So I return to the car and wait again. But she still doesn't come out obviously busy doing something in the shop. (I was actually served by an assistant).

So, I head back in again since she didn't show. She says "yes, I only have one pair of hands". I said I didn't think it was good that the customers should wait. Then she became obnoxious.

Where upon Harry sees red. OK. I'm not taking this. So I demand a refund and reiterated that customers should not be treated like this.

Whereup the lady has the audacity to say "Ja und" (like: "So what that you everyone else had to wait for me").

Whereup I, out of character, called the lady an Idiot!!! and prompty left.

I shall never tank nor wash my car there again.

There. Got that out of my system. I think I'll have a cup of tea and begin enjoying my weekend.

Please enjoy yours too.
