Shoulds are, as always, bogus.

I should have washed the windows when I filled the minivan with gas.
Reality: I didn't have much time.
End result: I bought coffee instead, left the windshield-washing for later.

"Crop dusting" at neighborhood park should have been done on a weekend or outside school hours.
Reality: DNR had only a finite window of time, did it during the school day.
End result: My minivan got coated with the sticky film of an organic insecticide.

Car wash should have taken care of it.
Reality: Car wash track broke down as my minivan entered.
End result: Minivan front end covered with soap, washing code noted (in soap) on side window. Sticky coating of organic insecticide still present.

I should get a free car wash!
Reality: I had already paid. No refund available.
End result: Credit issued, I can go back to get the wash done when they're fixed again.

Update: I went back to the car wash on a cool and cloudy day. The line was non-existent, and the service was great. the minivan is finally clean.
Now there's rain in the forecast, but that's fine with me.

Sounds like it was one of those kind of days. It's the saying "The road to H*## is paved with good intentions". My husband will often say he should do or should have done something. His intentions are good, but the task will remain undone.
