Customer: Just me and my son.
Rental Car Agent: Well, the economy car would work. We have one out front.
Customer: Where? That one? It looks more like a shoe box to me. I'm really and trying squeeze into that thing . . . I don't think so.

Customer: Well, I'm not so concerned about how it's equipped. I just want to make sure it is to drive. And what is the daily rate for that anyway?
