Definitely is for me. I took my car through a $7 car wash, and not only is my car still not clean, the flippin machine ate my fuel tank cover. So I had to run back in the machine and retrieve the thing from out of one of those giant brushes. Lots of people stared. My fuel tank cover is snapped clean off, I have no idea how I'm going to reattach the @#$% thing. Grf. Not good.
