When was the last time you washed your car?
Sorry to admit, I'm terrible about doing that. So, when my roommate mentioned a place nearby where you run it through a tunnel where all the work is done, I was sold. (I usually do it myself, hence the reason why it hasn't happened lately.)
Upon my return home, I discovered a little something missing from my car...
That big gap is where the front license plate should go. Sigh.
(Hey, at least my battery was intact.)
It was only then that I recalled that my front license plate had kind of been hanging on by a thread for a while. One of the screws had snapped some time ago, and I have no idea how to get a screw with no head out. Now I have two.
So, I can totally see how the action from an automatic car wash might make the license plate go flying.
Well, it's not like I'm really going out too much, anyway.
(I called the car wash up once I discovered the plate missing. They found it. I retrieved it. Now it's just a matter of figuring out how to get it reattached to the car.)
