Despite the connection Enterprise has with my company, I ain't giving them any more of my business. There was no flexibility in their "corporate guidelines" (he assured me it was a "company mandate" that was causing this idiocy) at all. It was ridiculous.
The really sad thing is, I have approximately $2,000 in my bank account right now, and told him he could run that debit card for the $250 deposit with no trouble. Why is this not acceptable in lieu of a credit card???
It was 111 today. I had to stand in the sun at Washington and 32nd Street. Thinking I was going to have a rental, I didn't have any water with me and I was hauling my purse and my usual lunch sack/bag, which I would have left at the office if I'd known. I neglected to bring a book, so during all the waiting all I had to do was ponder how angry, how hot, and how miserable I was.
I also forgot my badge in the truck (fortunately got to the garage just before they closed and my wonderful mechanic let me in to get it). I did not get home in time to get to the pharmacy (which closes at six) to get my medication, nor in time to get over to the Insight place for x-rays.
Am now hungry, cranky, and not in the mood to cook. Someone should present me with a Teriyaki Bowl.
At least it's cool in the house. (Even if Bo stole the brand-new, sealed box of buttermilk powder off the counter and chewed it up on the rug. Go figure dogs.)
