When he remarked to the employees of the car wash about the dirt remaining on the vehicle, they agreed the vehicle was still not very clean.

Yeager claims Ray instructed the workers to continue drying the vehicle and stop talking to him. He claims Ray informed him that "if he wanted his car clean, he should have paid for a detail job, not a wash job," and further scratched his car by drying it with a towel.
