So my allergies have been really really bad the past few weeks. Mostly during and after driving the car. So I figured the car was the source and went to scrub it down today with vinegar water today and really air it out. Everything opened up. Car was clean when we bought it and no noticable smell so I did mild wipe down then. Well in cleaning I hit the ashtray which was clean with 2 exceptions. One was a penny which caused me to pull the whole thing out to get the thing out and the other was stuck to the back of the tray. it was a partially smoked joint. ( I think) My dad says its one. My husband agreed. Brown paper wrapper which is not anything until they opened the thing up at which point my dad ( ex smoker) said that is not tobacco. This would make sense because the one time i was exposed to someone smoking one I started wheezing like mad and threw up. My allergies have been so bad I was ready to go see a specialist. So the vents all got cleaned. All the upholstery and leather got several wipe downs. The cloth floor mats are being washed and I am considering a carpet cleaner for the floorboards. The car is still airing out. My husband is changing the air filter tomorrow. The dirty discovery is safely burned to nothingness. I want to call this guy up and give him what for though. He is a teacher in a city near us. I had no idea I should have been thinking to look for this kind of thing. What if someone else had found this? I am seriously ticked off. If I had known I would not have bought the car because honestly I already knew how I reacted. Being around one friend who did this was enough for me. Not even Pregnancy made me hurl like that. It could have turned into possession. I have 4 kids for pities sake. What if one had found it. I have a 2 year old where everything goes in her mouth for pities sake. Thats right sit there and say how cute she is while selling me your little druggie car. I don't care if they do it, just don't pass it on. I am wicked angry right now. This guy has my Irish up big time. Edited to add: Man if I could drive the car right now I would probably go for a little visit and deck someone. I might have my husband give the guy a call. He is less likely to strangle someone than I am.
