Where not to park.

Yesterday, I ran over to the local Walmart and though I had found a pretty good parking spot.

When I returned, I cranked up the C300 and I had the worst odor you could imagine. My first thought was "is this the smell some have posted about in MBWorld?" But it was much worst than that. Then I jumped out of the car and checked the bottom of my shoes.....bet that looked funny by anyone watching. Nothing on the shoes. Then I figured I must have run over someone's pet in the parking lot and while in the store, decomposition kicked in.

Well I back out the car from the parking space to find that I had parked over one of those rain drains in the parking lot. Ta Da....found the source of the smell.

The odor got out of the car pretty fast, however every time I go past a Walmart now, I immediately think of that odor. lol That may take a while.
