*** Not a day late, but a Dollar short:

I arrived on time at LAX on 22 March with my Dollar rental car awaiting me. I was driving north to Port Hueneme, and was going to turn my car in at the Oxnard airport when I could do so that evening or the next morning. From there I would connect with my colleagues who were coming from the north where they had other meetings in Monterey.

I stood at the curb watching Hertz, Enterprise, Avis, National, Budget, and the rest, go by. But not Dollar. After watching the fifth or sixth big yellow Hertz bus go by, I called Dollar. Although I had the number for the LAX office, I was connected to the main Dollar number, where I had to listen carefully as some options have changed. Just as I was getting connected to an agent, the Dollar bus came by. I had flown in on USAirways via Phoenix, and was one of the first pick ups. The bus was empty. By the time it had made the circuit the bus was packed. As first on, I was last off, and so number 30 in line at the slow-moving Dollar counter. When I finally got to the counter, the agent tried to upgrade me to a bigger car. That wouldn’t necessary, I told her. I did want to know what time the Oxnard Dollar counter would be open until that evening so I could turn my car in. She didn’t know. Nobody knew. They couldn’t find out. I could call, she said. Who should I call, Dollar Rent a Car? You are Dollar Rent a Car! What’s the number? We don’t know.

I got my “smaller” car. Good thing I didn’t pay extra to be upgraded because all they had were big silver Crown Vics. I felt like an unmarked trooper.

I stopped in Pacific Palisades, buying a sandwich at Gelsons and joining my in-laws for lunch before heading up the Pacific Coast Highway through Malibu and into Ventura County. It was a beautiful day. The surf was not especially high but there were a lot of Surfers hoping otherwise. Since there had been significant rain in California, there were numerous places along the road where the highway had been partially blocked by mudslides. Further north there were sections completely closed. I arrived at the Embassy Suites Mandalay Bay Resort where I checked in and was “upgraded to a two room suite with an ocean view…all at the Government per diem rate. The nice people at the hotel desk were happy to call Dollar for me, and told me Matt would wait for me. I called my shipmate James Oldham, who worked at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Port Hueneme, and he met me at Oxnard. I put about $13.00 in the tank, and checked the mileage (about 75 miles), and brought the keys in. The last time I was in that terminal I flew in on United Express. Today there are no scheduled flights. Matt said he would forward my receipt by email the next day as he had already closed out for the day. Jim, Matt and I had a long talk about Afghanistan, Matt’s native country. By the time we left we were all intimate friends.

Jim took me back to the hotel in his red Porsche. Steve Anderson arrived from Monterey and we connected with Jim for dinner at Milano’s in Ventura Harbor. Jim picked me up in his red Ferrari. We had a great dinner, and all Steve could do was listen in disbelief as Jim and I vouched for each other’s unbelievable stories of our days aboard USS Cochrane.

When I returned home several days later I had several voice mails from Dollar’s security department wanting to know when I was going to turn in my car. I called them back and told them it was turned in the same day. I asked for my receipt. They said I would get it when the car was return to LAX. I received several more messages, asking the same thing. I told them the same story. I turned the car in at Oxnard at 17:23. May I please have my receipt? They said they were now showing that it was indeed returned, but that they needed the car returned to LAX before I could get my receipt.

Again more calls. I called them back a fourth time. This time they said they would issue a receipt and apologized. The receipt came from DTAG and looked like spam. I almost deleted it. When I looked at it, it showed the car being turned in at 17:23 on 22 March, but it also showed that the car had been driven more than 1,700 miles in the 4 hours and 15 minutes I had it.
