Default Got a free carwash today

It was too cool. I pulled up to the Penzoil for a carwash and was trying to get the machine to take my card but I couldn't get it to work. I pulled over by the bay doors and asked one of the guys whether it was working or not. He walked over to the machine and tried helping me, then said "Don't you worry about it, I will get you a carwash. Stay right here" and then walked away and came back with a voucher or something, put it into the money slot and pressed the button for the $7 carwash. Yay!!!!

Little did he know I just got my oil changed at this other place. I probably will go to Penzoil the next time because it probably won't cost me $29 like it did today.

Anything for a lady huh? That is really cool. But $29? What did you ask for full synthetic or what? Thats a little bit expensive.

No synthetic, I agree it was very expensive!! I only took it there because that was were it was done before I got the car and I thought I'd give them a try. I called them and asked what time they closed, he said 5:30 and I was about 20 minutes away and he agreed to wait for me. They used Castrol GTX. They checked all the fluids, checked my tire pressure, vacuumed my car, and had the door open waiting for me to get in. They had really good service but I think I will try some other places and see what they have to offer.
