I dropped my car off at the collision center and walked to the rental car agency. 47 pages of paperwork later (glad to see this isn't a hassle at all....), they escorted me to the rental car.
"Here you go!" he said, turning to hand me my keys.
I took a slow look hood to tailpipe over the horrifically ugly car and gave the guy a blank stare.
"Sassy!" he said.
"By your description of 'sassy', I'm guessing this isn't the first time you've had to defend the looks of this beast?"
"It's a holiday weekend in one of the most desirable vacation cities in the US."
Not only is it a Nissan (ugliest cars ever created) it's a Versa, which rates mere millimeters behind the Juke,... in electric blue...hatchback. Every time I rev the engine and the sun shines on that sparkly blue paint, I sink a little lower and push my sunglasses a little higher.
I miss my car.
