So far so good
Well, the lot was a poorly lit, gravel lot behing the center square in the deep South. No ATMs, and probably no cams. I remembered parking next to a silver 2000-ish Honda Accord Coupe, but the paint on my car was blue and it looked to have been backed into and not "cut hard" on the reverse out of the parking spot. So we have a paint mismatch, no witnesses, testimony that I didn't do it from a co-worker, and the rental agency agreeing to take care of it...
So far, So good. I got my receipt for the regular rental amount and I haven't heard anything since. I'm thinking that it's resolved for now. It just burns me up about that kind of dishonesty, but (I'm probably going to get reamed for this), I've come across some pretty closed minded people there who are pretty irresponsible. The bigotry hasn't changed much since the Civil War, frankly, and that's very disheartening.
...and that's all I got to say about that. Forrest Gump.
