Lol. Let's just say I pick something up on a specific pair of shoes working on a friend's car. Since I don't wear those shoes every day, that's why it was so sporadic. Needless to say, those shoes and whatever chemical substance I got on them have been thrown away

I agree with that. It is indeed a great relief that nothing is wrong with the car.

I remember a few years ago, I was unlocking our 20 year old car. The key won't open the door no matter what I do. I asked my friend to try the key and he said that he thinks the door is broken. I'm a bit worried as it was in the middle of the night.

I tried it one more time and out of frustration, I gave up and looked upward. That is the time I noticed that there was a cargo carrier installed.

I came to my senses and realized that what I was opening is not my car!

We had a good laugh. And I'm actually laughing (almost) as I remember it right now.

FYI: If you're the type who enjoys a car interior that doesn't have any smell (as opposed to those who use "air fresheners" which simply add stink to your car), I would highly suggest an odor absorbing desiccant bag. I've had this Griots produce for about 10 years now and it gets a quick baking in the oven every 6 months or so. Works fantastic and will have your car basically smelling like...... Nothing! No noxious plastic odor, no cleaners smell, gets rid of that bad taste in your mouth from that embarrassing thing you did last New Years Eve and will regret for the next 12 months, all of that.... GONE!

Note: Friends have tried the "bamboo charcoal" ones and they don't work for beans. Don't waste your money on those.

9 cars and 2 parking spots, this doesn't make any sense.

Error 404 on the link...

I was about to try MOSO BAMBOO CHARCOAL. It says it's the #1 brand in America.

Strange but the link works for me using Firefox browser on a PC.

I'm using my phone so perhaps that is the issue.
