STEPS TO ADMITTING THAT YOU’VE MADE A MISTAKE IN ACCEPTING AN OFFER OF A FREE RENTAL CAR

  1. “A free rental car? That sounds terrific! Thanks!”
  2. Wait 20 minutes for driver to show up to take you to rental car office.
  3. Drive less than 1/4 mile to rental car office.
  4. Fill out paperwork for rental car. Decline insurance because you’re kinda sorta sure you’re already covered by your regular car insurance.
  5. Accept keys for one of those really goofy rectangular breadbox-looking mini SUV things you make fun of other people for driving.
  6. Check around you to make sure no one you know can see you climbing inside as you hang your head in embarrassment.
  7. Drive 1 mile to work.
  8. Explain situation to coworkers who see you driving up in hideous “new” car.
  9. Realize work is less than 1 mile from the dealer and you could’ve been there half an hour ago if you’d just walked.
  10. Work for four hours.
  11. Get call from the dealer that your car is ready.
  12. Begin process of returning rental car.
