A funny thing happened when a friend rented a car recently. He had an accident. No, he is fine, but the car was a little tore-up. He had rented the car and wanted to go and meet Narciso. He goes to his house to get a nail clipper (I had a hangnail). He gets out his car and leaves it running, as he was only going to be gone for a minute. His Dominican friend, who was sitting in the passenger seat, decided to get behind the wheel. His friend then drove the car into his building and smashed the front in.
Many decisions had to be made. Should we just take the car back and deal with the insurance company? Well my answer was a resounding NO! I made a phone call and had it taken to a mechanic on the other side of the bridge. As you can see from the photos, he put it back together again, perfectly.
I didn't want to mention it until the car was taken back to the rental agency and given the clean bill of health. Well, we took it back and they looked it over and under and concluded everything was fine, but there looked like there was a little ding in the windshield. After a little haggling is was agreed that it was very minor and everything was fine.
