First of all, let me confess that I hate washing my car. More often than not, it will rain several hours after I wash my car and it will get dirty again.
In the past few weeks I have been using my dad’s Honda Siti because he went overseas, and so I left my Proton Wiira parked outside my condo.
I don’t want to say it’s supernatural, mystical, magical or even ethereal. I’m sure there is a perfectly illogical explanation to the incident.
You see, after two weeks exposed to the outdoor weather and parked under some trees, it accumulated a shocking amount of dust, rainwater stains, bird poo doos, and dry leaves.
Each time I went to warm up my car, I would try my best to clear off whatever debris I could from my car. I didn’t want the management to think that it was abandoned, because they tow abandoned cars away.
Two weeks ago I took some tissues to wipe off some of the bird poo doo that had been baked dry from the roof of my car.
After I was done, my car looked a bit funny. If you looked at the dust stains, you will know the owner tried to clean his car using a tissue.
Last Sunday after I returned the Honda Siti to my dad, I went to get my car and it was clean! No dust stains, no poo doo, no leaves!
Someone had mysteriously washed my car for me, either by mistake or by charity.
Thank you, whoever you are!
I think I will park my car outside my condo again this weekend.
