Went to a local supermarket this morning and decided to have my car cleaned - there is a hand car wash in the car park. Done my shopping and looked out of the window to see if the car was ready. There were some 3 people still cleaning, doors and boot open. Now, as DS is learning to swim I have a float and this long foam noodle/woggle in the boot. While I was watching, one man took this noodle, looked around, swung it and slapped his female colleague's bottom and then put the noodle back in the boot.

I went to collect my car, talked to the person in charge and he agreed it shouldn't have happened. He called his staff and asked me who it was, but I couldn't tell. They all just stared at me in silence as though I was some kind of a monster.

WIBU to complain?

Oh fuck sake lighten up

You did complain confused

Well I know what you mean...the thing wasn;t theirs to play with but you were being a bit over the top to complain.

They probably all laughed about it when you went...including the manager.

Hatter she meant WAS she being unreasonable to complain. The W is often used as Will or Was.

Have my first ever biscuit

No. there's no way in hell you should complain about that. You'd be entirely unreasonable. But I see it's too late for that now

Think you should unclench a little

They are doing a horrible, cold job, probably for minimum wage. Let them have there moment of fun.

You sound like a nightmare.

MadHattersWineParty Tue 24-Jan-17 12:45:14

Ok fair enough.

I'll change it to YABU. Move on, they mucked about, nothing got broken or damaged, no one got hurt. Your car got cleaned. What did you want to happen as a consequence?

Oh be fair, it is blumming freezing, these poor car washers are standing around for hours in the cold, hands in icy water.... Let them have a bit of fun with your noodle. It's not as though they used it to polish a windscreen.

Yes take it to the highest powers. The noodle has her butt juices on it now grin

Joke, YABU.

Get a grip.

That is an excellent use for a noodle.

SaltySalt Tue 24-Jan-17 12:50:14

What was it that bothered you the most?

watchoutformybutt Tue 24-Jan-17 12:52:09

Get a grip 😂

Jellybean83 Tue 24-Jan-17 12:52:35

Well at least you gave them all a good laugh. Yes YABU.

LineysRun Tue 24-Jan-17 12:52:42

You got a good look at the man, who was according to your own testimony looking round and swinging your noodle - so how is it you were unable to identify him in the managerially-imposed line-up?

Softkitty2 Tue 24-Jan-17 12:54:45

The female staff should have done the complaining.

Again, another thread looking to take offense in anything/everything.

What is this world coming to?! Everything is offensive etc etc

BarbaraofSeville Tue 24-Jan-17 12:54:55

It is up to the woman who got hit with the noodle to decide whether or not this was inappropriate and to complain if she thought it was.

Or are you complaining about them poking through your car and touching your things, because I'm not sure which it is.

Yabu get a grip

Oh good god what's the matter with you
I thought your post was going to talk about stealing your cd collection, not colleges lightening their job.
They earn practically nothing doing that job and you complained ?
Wash your own car next time.
