[DML] Re: Just curious - parade participation



I hear ya Rich!  The other day I took my car to 7-11 to grab a 
slurpee and when I came back outside a 40 some odd year old guy and 
his 16 some odd year old son has opened the door and were poking 
around the interior.  I was a cop at the time so I decided to give 
them a lesson in property rights.  I also had my D's engine steam 
cleaned, which was supposed to take 20 min.  I ended up sitting in 
their waiting room for an hour while groups of people walked into the 
wash bay and plopped into the car.  I poked my head out to see what 
was taking so long and boom, right before my eyes somebody took a 
seat in the car.  I spent a good amount of time chatting with the 
owner of the shop about why the car door was open anyway, when it was 
the engine getting cleaned.  I was very unhappy to say the least.  
And, the stories go on and on.....
