Car Rental

Had an unexpected trip and needed a car.

Car rental agent (CRA) : We are out of cars.

Me: Are you sure. Can you call?

CRA: (Calls Bob) Hey, are we accepting walk ups?

Meanwhile I was on the rental company’s app and made a reservation.

CRA: Sorry sir, but there are no cars. We are not taking walk ups.

Me: But I just made a reservation.

Turned my phone to show him.

He said several, i mean several bad words in his head and stared at me.

CRA: Bob, its me again. This gentleman just made an online reservation while standing here.

CRA: Well, sir, it’s your lucky day.

Ten minutes later i was off in a mom mobile – better known as a mini-van.
