hi, I'd like to rent a car...

Anecdote from a co-worker who'll remain anonymous:

He used to work in car rentals. His boss told him "the best retort" to use when someone comes in just asking for a price. (The price varies depending on place, time, and car.)

"How much to rent a car?"

"I'd be happy to tell you - what's the city and the date?"

"Hey, I just want a price."

"OK. A million dollars."


"Well, if you give me a date and city we might be able to get something cheaper."

:-p Hard business, working with people.
