Because it's easy. It's easy to take your car to a hand car wash, I used to get angry and frustrated when I saw people go there but now I just let it go. No point trying to tell these people because most of them are not interested and lease there cars anyway.

Like I said each to their own. But the way I see it, if someone spends 10, 20, 30...+ K on anything (or is responsible on a lease car, or a house mortgage), it should be cherished. I've got a nice Tag watch that cost quite a bit. I wouldn't chuck it in the dishwasher if it needs a clean. I've worked hard my whole life from aged 17 and what I buy I think I've earned and deserved it and I had very little when I was growing up. So I look after and cherish what I own, whatever that is. I think most people on this site are like this.

Try doing my job as a chauffeur!

Clients close the door using the window!, clonk the sills as they get in. Ooo, this is nice and clean, and then feel the need to touch the silver dashboard trim with their grubby paw prints.

They lift their luggage out the boot, if itís heavy, i donít even bother. But then they clonk the bumper as they yank the luggage out.

They use the provided bottle of water, crack open the top, and leave it in the cubby hole in the door, they pinch a sweet, again, leave the wrapper in the cubby hole.

And donít even get me started when they use a tissue!!

A mate at work is an active member on here so I get to chat detailing freely which is good but apart from that I donít bother as it would probably just bore anybody else and I respect that as we are all into different things. I bet many of us on here probably have other interests/hobbies outside of detailing.
Makes it worth it though when you pick up your car after its service and the body and paint inspection has this comment :-)

Yes I agree with you but most of the population aren't like that sadly. In there eyes if it shines then great. Thats all they want, they don't see the swirls.
