Default Don't You Hate It When...

Don't you hate it when you spend hours washing and waxing your car, cleaning every speck of dust and water droplet mark, getting it absolutely perfect only to have a f-ing lawn service blow **** all over your car?

I do. PISSES ME OFF

Yeah that used to happen a lot at the apartments I lived in...

Here the last month or so, everyone's car is coated in pollen, it's almost not even worth it to wash the thing.

I imagine you'll be driving a big candlestick before long if you wax it every time you drive it.

A friend of mine did that for years....every time he drove it, it was waxed upon his return. That was a once a month drive he did....the rest was under a cover in a garage....less than 50 miles a month on an 05 GT. LOL

Yeah. Happened to me the other day. Nice clean car, and my dad brings the weedwacker out and cuts all the green by my car, causing it all to fly up and stick to my car. I wasn't very happy. You better tell that **** to keep his eye out!

Yea I'm pretty bad with mine. I take it out on the weekends only and I wash it probably every weekend and end up waxing it once a month. Pollen and getting stuck in random, uncalled for small (enough-to-%#$&-your-day) rainstorms screw my life...lol

OP that does really suck though, had that happen before too.

I cringe when I'm driving down the road approaching someone on a lawn mower, just totally expecting a rock to come right thru my glass. My buddy Kirk and I were talking about this last week. It never fails, the harder you try to keep your $hit looking good the harder the evil forces try to mess it up. Kirk is a big Camaro guy and has 2 very nicely restored Camaros, a '68 and a '69. Needless to say a few days after our talk about the evil forces that hate our cars his large florescent light fixture fell from his garage ceiling and ruined the hood on one of his cars.
