There's a genius amongst us



We received official word that my car has been deemed "totaled."  No real shocker there.  But between calling the insurance folks, doctor visits, and other related eat-up-my-day kind of activities and discussions, this is an excerpt from yesterday's conversation between me and the car rental company as they were finalizing their paperwork:

Rental Genius: Where is your car being repaired?

Me: It's not being repaired.  Its been considered "totaled."

Rental Genius: So, that means it's, like, dead and you can't drive it?

Me: Um, that's usually what "totaled" means. 

{Commence self-clawing out of my own eyeballs}

UGH! Kinda like the scene in Seinfeld where they don't have his rental - even though he had a reservation.
"I know what a reservation is"
"I don't think ya do" - makes me laugh EVERY TIME!
