Summer is over but the weird continues on the car wash front. Here are three more stories you have to read to believe.
A car wash in Florida was recently featured in a commercial for Starbucks. The coffee giant casted Rising Tide Car Wash out of Parkland, Florida, according to the Sun Sentinel. The commercial series features feel-good segments highlighting businesses and individuals. Rising Tide Car Wash is known for employing people with Autism. The Starbucks commercials are part of a series they’re calling “up standers.” You can watch the six-minute clip on the coffee chain’s smartphone app.
And here’s a less than feel-good story that’s no less weird. A woman in Ohio was busted for running a meth lab out of a car wash. News outlets across the country, including several in Ohio, caught onto the story and report that troopers with the Ohio Highway State Patrol originally responded to reports of a woman spray-painting an all-terrain vehicle at the car wash. Once they got to the scene, troopers also found a working methamphetamine lab set up in one of the car wash bays. The Minford, Ohio woman was arrested at the scene. It turns out, she’s been arrested for making meth before.
And we saved you the best for last this time. While there aren’t a lot of details to this story featured in The Daily Astorian, we still found this funny. An emergency call was heard in which a man who sounded intoxicated called 911 to report that he could not find the gold chocolate coin he accidentally used to pay at a car wash cash and change kiosk. He must have been pretty hungry to report that emergency.
