The upside is that you just waxed your car! Rinse the drink off with some water, dry with a soft cloth, you're good.

Relax, let the frustration dissolve away with the water dissolving the dried drink residue. In addition, it isn't pidgeon poop, which can drill holes through paint. There's always things to be happy about.

Usually folks post these kinds of things in their regional section. Just so you know.

There you go, and no charge. I have plenty of punctuation and capitalization to spare. Please insert them as appropriate in your post so that those of us that read and write American English can also comprehend you.

Wait: You called the police when someone accidentally threw coffee on your car?

...
You called the cops!
Life is too short to get too worked up about the small things.

As Powder Hound pointed out, since you just waxed it the stuff will rinse off without any problem.
