Default Auto Rentals

I never fly knowing how many parts revolving, spinning, being heated to red hot temps, could fail sending me plunging miles into a lil round crater.
But recently I did. I rented a car at the destination. Got there picked up the car and took off, upon getting off the airport lot I noticed the tank was half full.
WTH? The counter lady had told me they charge $3.51 per gallon when returned if they had to fill it.
I filled it up for twenty bucks at 2.19 a gallon. When I turned it in the lot checker told me my credit card would be reimbursed for the half tank. The tank was full at turn in.
Called corporate when I did not get reimbursed.
So sad too bad, you used a travel site, no cash for you.

Here's a rental coupon to upgrade to a bigger car next time.

Keep the coupon I'm done filling up your cars coming and going.

Alamo, not just gouging tourists in San Antonio...

I'll know better next time, check the tank before you leave the lot and use another company..

They got $32.05 from the last sucker, pocketed that and had me top off the tank with another twenty.
They made fifty two bucks!
This should be a RICO case

And now, you're gonna hafta have a passport to fly, even on domestic flights, from several states .... unless, of course, you're an illegal alien.

Ain't no way I want a passport.

only applies if you're from a state that doesn't use Birth Certificates when issuing drivers licenses.

Exactly. Until they figure out whether they can get by with afflicting EVERYONE with it.

Last time I got a passport was quite a few years ago when the city of New Orleans was being flooded from the hurricane and that is where the passport comes from for this area.
It cost about a 100 bucks and took 6 weeks to get here.

Bush's fault that city flooded. Just kidding, but I've heard liberals say that before, because everything that happens is Bush's fault, Lol. I haven't heard anything about the passport deal either, what's up?
