Finally had to have the windshield in my Truck replaced after 15 years.
Decided to go out and clean the rest of the windows and it reminded me of a time when I got my butt severely chewed upon for doing what I thought was a great job.
Goes back to my Senior Year in High School and I used to work in a gas station in afternoons and weekends. This was back in the day when we didn't just pump gas and take money, we cleaned windows, checked oil/water, tire pressures, and if there was time we'd even sweep off the floor mats with a whisk broom carried in our back pockets.
One day we had an older gentleman who parked his early 50's chevy at the pump and said "fill 'er with regular". He then proceeded to head for the rest room.
I filled, checked, cleaned windshield, swept out, and finished filling. Owner hadn't come back yet and I noticed his driver's side window looked like it hadn't been cleaned since the car left the factory.
Being a young guy who wanted to make a good impression I proceeded to go to work with squirt bottle and blue towel(s). Took some time but I finally got the window nice and clean. Others looked pretty good so I left them.
Customer returned from the rest room, paid for his gas, then left. I was feeling good.
About 10-15 minutes later the guy returned and stormed out of his car heading straight for me. Shouting he said "DON'T YOU EVER CLEAN THAT DOOR WINDOW AGAIN!" while pointing vigorously at it. ( I left out some of the more colorful words he used for emphasis)
I walked over and saw a huge brown glop of gooey stuff right in the middle of the window, running down on the inside.
He then proceeded to tell me that the clean window looked like it was open and he spit his chew out of it.
I apologized. cleaned up the mess, and trust me, NEVER cleaned that window again. Still makes me chuckle to this day.
