Out of the Blue

So I get a free car detailing from my dealer in exchange for getting my scheduled maintenance there. Considering the borderline gouging this involved, this is a relative form of free, so I'd like to have gotten my money's worth. I'd tell you how many days in a row it rained following the detailing, except there hasn't been a day since then when it hasn't rained. As my pithy buddy devicer would put it, Alanis Morrisette is rolling over in her hot tub.

Enahs, thanks for the tip.

I've recently been reemed by mechanics who consistently rip me off. I was considering taking a class on auto maintenance, but I'll give that book a try.
