HELL ON WHEELS: THE SEQUEL!


A funny thing happened this morning on my way to return the "SS Albatross" -- my rental Cargo Van -- to Budget Truck Rental in San Jose. They wouldn't accept it. Evidently, when my colleague rented the vehicle, he promised that it would be returned to Los Angeles. "What were you thinking?!?," I asked. "That you would drive it back to L.A.," he said. The problem with the van -- aside from its lack of shock absorbers -- is that there are no rear windows and the visibility is terrible. To make a long story short, I forced my colleague to drive and I rode shotgun ...!

Hi Kittie,
It was Easy: I told him he was the one who promised to return the vehicle to L.A., not me, so as far as I was concerned, he was the one who would need to bring it back. And it was on his credit card. Then I offered to help.
Best,
Marty
