Do you remember having a school Car Wash to raise money when you were a kid? I remember my classmates and me meeting at a gas station early on a Saturday morning with signs asking for people to let us wash their car for a donation to a good cause. It was lots of fun for us teens, however our customers might not have gotten their car washed they way they wanted it. Most likely the teenagers barely washed their car in return for a donation. This is not what I discovered when we found a local Island Car Wash. In fact what we got was quite awesome.
Nestled beneath the white plumeria, Rose and I discovered a local island car wash. We decided to inquire what was included. Rose asked the hard bodied attendant and he informed her that a car wash included:
Diligently, 2 young men went to work. After 45 minutes and 2 glasses of fresh coconut juice, our car was sparkling brightly in the tropical sunshine.
'Magkano?' ('How much do we owe you?')
'35 pesos, Mam' (about US$0.85).
Rose opened her wallet and gave him nearly 5 times that amount. She appreciates value, and she rewards those who do a job well to earn their money.
The young men smiled, shook our hands and waved as we climbed into our shiny ride.
'Watching them wash the car made me hungry. Where do you want to have lunch?' Rose asks.
'I overheard Malcolm saying his chef (Harold) is making fresh tuna sashimi at the beach house today, and he said there will be plenty if we want to join them.'
'You know I love peesh (fish). Stop wasting time. Start this thing up and let's head to Loveland Beach. Anything Chef Harold makes is super delicious.'
... and off we go to enjoy time with good friends and to tell them where they can go to get a quality car wash in Paradise.
