Annals of Absurdity, Part 32

So here I am speeding down the 401 when my cell phone rings.

Hello, is this Mr. Rukavina?” asks the voice on the other end of the line.

Yes,” I cautiously reply.

This is Thrifty Car Rental calling. I’m calling about the vehicle that you have rented, due to be returned on July 16th. It needs to go into the shop on July 14th. Are you still in the Toronto area? We need arrange to switch cars with you.”

Well,” I reply, “you are lucky, as I’m going to return the car early, tomorrow morning, as my plans have changed.”

Oh, that’s good. It’s fine even if you want to return the car on Monday.”

What if I had been in Sault Ste. Marie? And if it’s so urgent that the car go into the shop, should I really be driving it?

I’ll be back on the Island Sunday afternoon. That is, unless the wheels fall off the Chrysler Sebring.

This is why you shouldn’t drive a Sebring
