How do you know you actually get "Double" the Foam Bath for the extra dollar? Because I am soooooo damn funny about this stuff- I would do both and time it, see if its really "Double" and if its NOT- ohhh the class action law suits to be had - 🤣

Its a company card but I do have a conscious!
I have a company card also and use the $7 wash every once in a while. Our book keeper asked why I was putting $7 worth of drinks and snacks on the card. I told her it was for the car wash. She hasn't asked again... :p

Hey, the 5 icons are BIGGER on the $8.99 and the Foam IS double. If you're going to pay for a machine to scratch up your car, may as well get the extra lube.

Just like the Party Packs of Tacos at the Del... .89 each or 12 for $14. Go VALUE!

All I know is that super clown is paying for the damn beer next time!!
...and regarding beer, would you get the 12 oz bottle for $4.00. or- the floating bar special- 16 oz. of draft beer for $4.50...the choices in life are just so mind boggling. 🤣

Yeah buddy, got that right- All day long on the lake, 150 degrees, its dry, hot, your hungry, all sticky from layers of lotion and sweat, been feasting on sun flower seeds for 12 hours and then- The reward, you get in a air conditioned room or at least a fan with misters, shimmy up to the bar and there it is...the holy grail of beverage, a tall, frosty mug of ice cold draft beer. BAM- who cares how much it cost. a bit of heaven, ahhhhhhhhh

I wish I could afford the $7.99 wash. Well actually I can but no one washes my truck but me. Always comes out good and the most weird thing happens every time. The seat and mirrors are in the same position and there isn't a layer of oil crap on the dash.

I’ve gotten to the point where I just put in a call and have detailers come to house and put in a whole day on all my stuff. Why leave the house.

How long do those car washes take to recoup the initial investment?

Gotta be a lot of $8 dollar washes to pay back 50k?

No I don’t work from home, nor order in or grocery’s ever. Just have 3 boats 2 trucks and rv and other peoples boats I work on as a side gig that need detailed. So I have a team show up and work all day and usually my stuff is getting done pretty cheap because I give them so many jobs.😉
