Tremendous Upside w/ Dave & Niraj

Those funny Brits and their rental carsHilarious
There's an article online about how several Alamo locations in the UK have all sorts of weird stories regarding their rental cars. Excuses people have for damage and late returns, and strange things left in the car upon return.
Customers can be very creative but sometimes the events are so far fetched they must be true – as in the case of a lady phoning in Birmingham for replacement keys after a "magpie swooped down and stole them off the car roof." Luckily Alamo staff went the extra mile - and delivered the lady some new keys.

Strangest reasons for damage:
• A customer in Bristol said: "I hit a cow crossing the road."
• "I didn’t see the wall until I’d reversed into it," offered a customer in Oxford.
• "A pheasant came out of nowhere and got stuck in the grill" was the reason given by another customer in Edinburgh .
• "I just woke up one morning and it was there" was the explanation given by a man in Newcastle who returned a car with caved in wings, doors and wheel arch.

Unusual Reasons for returning a car late:
• "I was running late for the plane."
• One customer got lost for 6 hours driving around Leeds - she called the branch in tears several times and eventually a member of staff went out to collect her.
• "I didn’t realise it had to be back."

Surprising items left in the car:
• False teeth • Black leather whip • A false leg • A cat in the engine • G-string in the sun visor • Wedding dress.

      That site you mentioned is great. Those are some ridiculous accidents. I am sympathetic to the person who drove into a pole while trying to kill a fly though, because I have some bad arachnophobia and was seriously distracted by a spider once in my car - enough to swerve a bit. Fortunately I was on an empty residential street and not a highway or near light poles :)
