I am somewhat of a car nut. I like to keep my cars clean and new-looking. It doesn't take much effort really, just wax them twice a year, wash off bird shit immediately, wipe down the interior with a damp rag every so often, and no eating or drinking in the car.

Yesterday I had to swap vehicles with my sister-in-law because she was taking all the cousins to an amusement park and they all wouldn't fit in her minivan. Her minivan is barely a year old yet looks like it's been driven to the moon and back - to pick up garbage. It was on "E" and the inspection sticker was expired.

So I shouldn't have been surprised when she returned my truck with 32 oz of Coca Cola seeping into my leather seats & console.
