168 Lazy Sunday Confessions – Crying Over a Car Rental


One Thanksgiving we were going to Vermont so I booked a $400 car rental on Hotwire.

Andy and I trekked out to JFK to pick up the car. I had made a massive mistake on the Hotwire reservation and unfortunately the mistake prevented us from actually picking up a car. After pleading, the car rental company would not change their mind, so I called Hotwire.  They wouldn’t budge either.

I had already paid the $400 and it would not be refunded and I broke down and cried. And then I cried some more. I may have even thrown my luggage. $400 down the drain.

Determined not to let this ruin our holiday, I got on my iPhone and  rented another car at a different rental company. It cost us an extra $400 but we were on our way.

I have refrained from making a similar mistake since.
