Mida annab Circle K Pesupass?

Kes veel ei tea, siis Circle K paistab olevat oma autopesu-teisipäevad asendanud Pesupassiga – püsitellimusloogikal automaatpesula teenusega. Katsetasin seda kuu aega ja jagan meelsasti oma kogemust-arvamust nii mõnegi asja kohta, mida tankla koduleht on unustanud mainida.

Most Familiar Strangers are tied to certain places (and perhaps times).
