Of Rental Cars

So I’ve blogged in the past how debit cards get treated far differently than credit cards and How I want federal legislation that says merchants cannot discriminate.

Well – after the annual holiday trip I had to rent a car again for trip up to Manchester, NH. And I went with Enterprise as they’re close by and always have vehicles available.

When I rented for the holiday they charged a $200 hold – which they refunded on return.

This time – they didn’t even put the charge on. Just the flat rental fee and insurance.

Maybe it’s because this time the rental agent was a man. I seem to be able to schmooze better with guys than women. Not all that strange when you consider I’m a) pretty smart and b) gay.

It’s just strange.
