Goodreads asked John C. Oliva:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

John C. Oliva I was inspired to write "Washing Cars & Wasting Time" after reading Steve Dublanica's "Waiter Rant" book. I always enjoyed retelling the stories from my car wash days, but reading Steve's book was what really first made the light bulb go off above my head and think to myself "maybe I could write a book too."
