F'n sprinklers

So I wash my car today and it's looking nice and then, as I'm driving down the road, I get hit by the errant spray from a law sprinkler! Twenty minutes later I pull off to the side of the road to check something and wouldn't you know it the sprinklers in the law beside me decide to come on just then and I get hit again!

Arrrgghhh...

No, law sprinklers. The law required that they be place throughout the town to spray freshly washed cars. You don't want anyone to have their cars too clean. lol

Yeah, LAWN sprinklers.

I need to add a postscript to my prior...

Later last night I'm driving west on I-80 on the south end of the great salt lake when I here what sounds like rain hitting the car. I look up and see clear sky's with plenty of stars so I then realized it was a swarm of small bugs.

I go through the car wash this morning, but those little bugs just won't come off. I mean there doesn't appear to be any sizeable amount to them just a smear that is still visible.
