One traditional gift on my giving list is a great Christmas combo cooked up by the folks at the Delta Sonic gas station.
In a pretty little blue box they fold in three coupons for a car wash and one worth $20 toward dinner for two at Applebee’s.
Every year I give one to my dear wife Karen. She uses the wash coupons on over-freezing winter days to get the road salt off her pretty red Mazda CX-5. And I get to share in the dinner. Win-win. (Now my terrific daughter Elisabeth and fantastic boyfriend George Three get it to share in the wash-and-eat, too.)
After Karen got off work Friday, we used the Applebee’s coupon. Lucky me.
Do you consider my gift-giving of the car wash/dinner combo more smart or more selfish? Do you wash your car in the winter months, and if so, how often? What would you order at Applebee’s?
