this is not what i thought my dad meant when he said he was going to clean my car

i just picked up my first car on thursday and still haven't had a chance to drive it.. firstly, my dad brought it straight to fiat for a new timing belt and a major service and now he's ripped poor bubbles into pieces. i didn't expect this when he said he would clean my car for me. at least i know it'll be sparkling when he's done with it

Need to tell him he could have done better.

This is what I had to do last Saturday



13 hours all in although there was lunch and a lot of mucking about with the lads in-between
