Just where do you think that cigarette butt you threw out your window is going to end up?

  1. The windshield washers on the Cavalier were mounted on the wiper arms, and one of the nozzles was not aimed right, so it sent an arc of washer fluid up and to the right whenever the washer was activated. One day, I was at a traffic light when the guy in a jumbo pickup truck next to me tossed a butt — I don’t think he even realized I was there. The butt came to rest, still smoking, on top of one of my wiper blades, allowing the smoke to be drawn into the air-conditioner intake. Without thinking, I hit the washer button to douse the butt and flick it off the car. Poetic justice.
