O.J. is good for you, but how about your car?

Ahhh, First day at work! It was great.

Just to add some back story to this story. You need to know that I currently drive a 1997 Forrest Green Escort Wagon with 103k miles. Now, recently the car had to pass inspection. Normally this ain't a big deal, but this time I had to pay nearly a grand to get the peice of shit to pass inspection. Made me want to light the car on fire. This was about 2 weeks from today . . .

So I go grocery shopping today, and pick up some food. Mostly breakfast food (orange juice) and some lunch food. I throw my food in the back of the car. I drive 3 minutes to my condo and get groceries out of the car. As I'm walking to the door, I notice there is water dripping on my hands and feet. I didn't buy anything frozen that could be melting. WTF is going on here? I give my hand the smell test. hmmm. Smells kind of sweet. I give it the lick test. Kind of tastes like O.J.

Wait a second, I bought O.J.!!!! I put down the groceries, and pick up an empty O.J. carton from the plactic bag. A stream a curse words leave my mouth as I run back to my car to find a pool O.J. in the back seat.

Apparently, in throwing the food in the back seat, the O.J. carton landed on my ice scraper that poked a hole in the bottom of the carton. In 3 minutes the whole 1/2 gallon emptied onto my back car seat.

Needless to say, I was kind of pissed. I used whatever capret cleaner and paper towels I had left to clean up the mess. Hopefully, It won't smell that bad as I drive to work in the morning.

This can only make the car more attractive to the ladies. Am I wrong?
