“Wash Me!”

The hurricane wreaked havoc for miles and miles. Flooding affected millions of people, destroying homes and vehicles.

Jim’s big van survived, just barely. Once the floods receded, the van was left with filthy residue, covered with debris. The motor was fatally wounded. Insurance claims were taking months, even years, because of the numbers applying.

But that wasn’t enough. Soon, words were written in the muck: “Wash me, lazy pig!” and worse.

Jim set out buckets of soapy water and rags. He wrote “Help Me!” under the original message.

The vandalism stopped. The van got washed.

    1. I had this happen to me when we got a very old white car that was very dirty–Terry had big plans to restore it, paint it, etc. But in the meantime I had to drive it as it was. He finally got after it when I told him my students had christened it “The Ghetto Cruiser.”
