In any event, yesterday – I dropped off my car at the dealership to be fixed. From there, I had Enterprise pick me up from there and get me a rental. My insurance pays $30 a day for a rental, so I decided to get one.
Enterprise had a bunch of cars available for $30 per day, but they also said for a few buck more per day (about $10) I could get a Hummer H3.
I thought about it for a bit, thought how much I hate big cars (I hate driving them, I hate seeing them on the road, etc). I figured, heck – why not drive one for a few days. So I got the Hummer H3 for a few days. Why not? It isn’t like I have to keep it for three years – so give the big car a try.
The car is huge. It feels like a truck. It handles very well. It has very good acceleration for a car (truck) that size. But it is big, big. Coming from very small cars, my whole life, maneuvering with this one is different. I am very careful when backing up, making turns, pulling in/out of my garage and so on.
But at the same time, it does make you feel empowered when driving on the road. You know, like you are the big kid in the class and no one can mess with you. I drive around, with my huge engine and car and think – hey, I can drive over that car. Not that I would, but you know the feeling.
In any event, I will likely return the car in a few days and get my small car back. I doubt I will regret renting the Hummer. It is fun trying out new cars. So why not make the best of a bad situation (the accident)?
