C U Spray Me

For when you run out of windshield washer fluid.

It happens, usually on a long trip, the washer fluid runs dry. What to do? If the roads are wet enough you can tailgate someone and accumulate enough moisture kicked up from their tires to improve the situation somewhat. But when do you really notice? When it’s not wet enough to do this and the sun hits the grime just so. Many an accident occurs as a result of this.

With a little inter-car communications and backwards-facing nozzles this can be resolved. When in need, push the Spray Me <request> button to broadcast for suitably equipped cars in front of you. The request buttons in their cars will blink indicating a visually impaired driver in need of assistance. A push of their button signals back to you that they are available to help, causing the request button in your car to blink and start a beacon light flashing on the back of their car.

Pull up behind one of them and push the Spray Me <now> button. A hefty dose of cleaning fluid will grace your windshield via a beautiful twirling vortex. Unfortunately you will not see this because your windshield is still dirty, but hey, a few swipes of the wipers and you’re no longer a road hazard. Push the <thank you> button.

       Also good for tail-gaters.   

       (off subject) I knew someone that turned their squirters sideways and would pull up to a curb and spray people on the sidewalk.

       I was just about to mention that. I used to do the same thing! But rather than spraying people on the sidewalk I would spray other cars in traffic. If they happened to have their window open that made it even more fun.

       I know a guy who has his squirters pointing forward and shoots at anyone in front of him who's going too slow or just being a dumbass.

       Yeah. Some favor a forward pointing squirter.

       This is set up such that the recipient activates the spraying, but far be it for me to stand in the way of a little healthy tampering.

       I can see the advert now.....Cue Lionel Ritchie.....   

       #C U, spray me; spray it for always,
That’s the way it should be,
C U, spray me; spray it together,
Naturally...#
