Bad Ideas: Work Truck With Ladder On Top Goes Through Automated Car Wash

April 1, 2019

Fight! Fight! Fight!

This is a video of a man who decided to take his work truck through an automated car wash while he still had a ladder strapped to the top of the vehicle. For the wellbeing of his ladder rack and the carwash, that proved to be a bad idea, and I'm obviously more than a little concerned about his decision making skills and the quality of work he might be performing on the job site. That said, I have borrowed a friend's truck to wash a bunch of furniture in a carwash before.

Keep going for the video, but skip to 1:55 unless you have an automated carwash fetish.

Thanks to Brian A, who agrees that ladder already looked clean.

    Definitely should have gone to the touchless car wash...

    I don't get it. The ladder gets caught in the brushes once it starts spinning (obviously). So then after backing up and freeing himself the decision becomes - ram through the machine? Rather than, I don't know, unhook the ladder and just put it in the bottom of the shorty?

    I mean, they're in an easily identifiable work vehicle. What do they think is going to happen aside from a smirking police officer arriving at their door in a few hours?

    Talk some more trash, man! He had to think fast in the moment, you're Monday morning quarterbacking from the comfort of your own home.

  • sizzlepants

    Why? Why do you have to think fast? This is why you have insurance.

    You have insurance in your work vehicle... right?

    If I had a dollar for everytime this happened to me............I'd have no money.

    April Fools!

    Don't we all have a car wash fetish?
