BIG Ups to Sparkling Image Car Wash

A few years into my last car payment, it hit me that a car is an investment. (I’m quick.) I had been on the go for years and realized I wasn’t taking the greatest care of my car. I never had it cleaned, poor bippy. I did get regular oil changes, but I wasn’t careful backing up and parking and had acquired many dings and dents. Aside from that, it makes me nervous to drive a car that looks like the Sanford-mobile on the inside. I hate when it’s messy and crumby and dirty. Soooo, when I got the Goose a few months ago, I made a solemn vow to take extra good care of it. I work my ass off to make car payments so I should properly maintain my investment.  I decided I’d try to have my hoopty detailed a few times a year. Yes, it costs about $50 each time but the lovely, “taken care of,” “one area of my life that’s dealt with” feelings are totally worth every penny.

In early May, I had the Goose detailed. She was SO beautiful and shiny. At the time, I bought a book of washes as a further step toward my “Keepin’ it clean!” committment. A few weeks later, I realized that the car wash guy never gave me the book I purchased. I saved the receipt so I could go back and get my book. Then a few weeks after that, I accidentally threw away the receipt. Ever determined, I printed out my bank statement with the charge on it and planned to take it to the car wash place. FINALLY today, I did just that. It would have been very easy for them to be all, “Um, sure you never got your book. Now beat it!” Instead, the guy I talked to was SO patient and helpful and gave me the benefit of the doubt. He offered two free washes, which together total more than I paid for the book. He couldn’t have been nicer. Rainbows shot out of his booty!

They do a great job!

P.S. I asked the cashier guy if they have a Web site. He told me washdepot.com. I don’t see anything about Sparkling Image at that site, but I’m linking just in case. Go get your car washed there! Rainbows will shoot out of your booty too!
