Almost a month ago I wrecked the Escape. I rented a car from Hertz, and the agent tried his hardest to sell me the LDW (Loss and Damage Waiver). He insisted if anything went wrong I wouldn't have to worry about it. He also tried to sell me a tank of gas at a discounted rate. Nonsense! I told him. I don't need any of that. I'm not leaving the beach.
My insurance company called me earlier this week and told me that my rental limit for the car I was driving expired on Friday. So today I called Hertz and this is what I said:
Today I'm supposed to bring my rental car back, and here's the thing: I was backing into the garage and I scraped and buckled the back quarter panel & bumper into the concrete wall which also cracked the taillight, and the surfboard that was hanging out the window hit the same wall and bent the window frame. So I was wondering what I'm going to need to have with me when I bring it back. And one more thing: Some voles, they're like rats in the marsh, climbed into the ceiling of my garage and ate a hole in the water pipes creating a water leak that flowed down onto the car. The wet sheet rock is a little embedded in the windshield wipers. I didn't take it through a car wash because I can't get the back window up. I was kind of hoping you could give me the estimate before you turn it into my insurance company; I might be inclined to just pay for it.
