The biggest rental car you've ever seen

I got in a stupid accident and my car's been in the shop for awhile, so I got a stand-in SUV. This is the behemoth they gave me. The darn thing doesn't even fit in parking garages! I've had several turn me away. Poo.

I asked politely for 6 days to get a more manageable SUV that was still an SUV (not a "car") and my results were... nothing. So today I DEMANDED a Jeep Grand Cherokee, which they had PROMISED ME from the beginning and every day since but never delivered, and miraculously for some reason, demanding made one appear. I may need to re-evaluate my negotiation style. But regardless of that, here's the Jeep in all her beauty. I like red.

Thanks Britt!

SO cute, Lindsay!! :)

and duh, Shelby... I asked for one of three cars: Ford Explorer, Jeep Grand, and Chevy Trail blazer... anything I'd had previous experience driving. Instead, they give me a bus! But I am happily content (now) with the car of my sister.

I'm pretty sure I told you on the second day that you needed to be more demanding...
