There’s Nothing Like A Woman’s Touch!

Read window of truckWhile I’m not in the habit of pulling people over to the side of the road, weekend before last I couldn’t help myself. You tell me how I’m not to notice an advertisement like this on the rear window of a substantially-sized truck!

Maybe I was just in the right mood, but I called the number! I had to find out if this was for real. Lu answered the phone and I told her that I was following her and was fascinated by the advertisement in her rear window.

I asked her, “Is this for real?”
“Of course I’m for real!” she responded, rather annoyed with my stupid question.

The conversation went on until we got close to a parking lot to pull over.  The parking lot was, uh, kinda crowded. My word for this is squishy, but we’ll just say crowded. Luci and I made the best of it! Her GMC truck is huge!

The poor woman must have thought I was a real nut case. But I just had to show you guys! This is so cool. So I’m crazy, but there’s a little bit more to tell.

This little business was originally called Lu’s Auto Detailing. Most people assumed that Lu was a man.  After she changed the name to “A Woman’s Touch” Luci receives even more phone calls! Is this a trust issue? Are women better at cleaning? Are they more meticulous? Are they more delicate and therefore less likely to damage something? I don’t know.

Lu shared with me that she had already received two other phone calls just before mine that day!  See?!?  I’m not the only crazy one! Besides, that’s the idea! Obviously this lady’s window ad is working just fine! She’s a commercial on wheels!

Well, I personally like cleaning the outside of my car but I HATE doing the interior. For me, that’s what detailing is all about! And man, does my car need it!

Luci's Business Card

Luci is a no nonsense kind of person. She is very pleasant but also very matter of fact and to the point. Just the kind of person you want to make you feel safe when dealing with them and just the kind of person you would trust to have working on your vehicle!

Thank you, Luci, for pulling off the road for me and letting me torture you with my questions and fascination with that darn window!  It’s not every day that you see a woman running a business that has ANYTHING to do with cars.  I just think it’s great. You go girl!

    I’ve known Lucille for about 24 years and she is one of the hardest working people I know. I’m so proud of her and I’m glad she’s getting the recognition she deserves!

    My BIL drives a Furniture Medic truck and gets calls all the time from people who are following him on the road. Most of those calls are for the business.

    Good for you for calling!
