Shorter Hertz: "We're Happy to Ruin Your Once-in-a-Lifetime Trip."

Hertz is canceling reservations that travelers have made for the Great Eclipse of 2017. They say "oops, we overbooked."

So if you've booked a rental car (or anything else, for that matter) to see the eclipse in thirteen days, you might want to confirm it. And find out whose liver you can cut out and feed to a pack of feral dogs, in case they screw you over.

"I know why we have reservations."
"I don't think you do!"

I thought the joke was:

"Do you have reservations?"

"Yes, but we're going to rent one of your cars, anyway."

It's from the first Seinfeld scene I related to perfectly.
The problem was weekend renters had not returned the cars, and there was ZERO available for me.

3383, that situation was why I eventually gave up and bought my own airplane.
