Heading in to pay for my petrol today I saw this sign and wondered “will they ask?”.
The guy behind the counter asked for the now usual extortionate amount to fill the tank of my 1.6l engined car.
And then, resignedly, he mumbled:
“Would you like to get a car wash?”
“Um… No thanks…”
“I have to say that,” he said, “it’s because of the sign,”
“Except my regulars, they asked me to stop doing it.”
“Is it working?”
“No… we’re selling less than we used to.”
