Pride

You would probably expect that a person who normally drives a Saturn wouldn't be too picky about what kind of rental car he was given.

You would generally be right.

But then yesterday, Enterprise gave me a "free upgrade" and I got stuck with a PT Cruiser.

I mean, even I have my limits.

Too girly? Too yuppie? Too chic?

That's an upgrade? My condolences.

Angela,

Maybe this will help explain. Last night at church, I was telling a 4th grader about my rental:

4th Grader: What kind of car did you get?
Me: A PT Cruiser.
4th Grader: My grandparents drive a PT Cruiser.
Me: Ya, so does everyone else's grandparents.

Alex,
I think it was an upgrade in that it was bigger than my car. At least as close as I can figure.

But "free upgrade" was just code for "we don't have any other cars right now."

interesting. I think my grandmother drives a PT cruiser too.

My grandparents used to drive a PT Cruiser too, but they have more class than that.
Also, I think that a "free upgrade" most likely means "no one else will drive this car, Mr. Dockery." "Have a nice day in cruisin' in the cruiser!"

Ironically, the PT Cruiser didn’t actually have cruise control. It seems like it was poorly named.
