Sandra and Donita are finally ready for their cruise to Aruba. All the problems seem to have been solved.

Now they need to get the rental car to drive to Seattle. A friend drives them to the agency, then leaves. The women enter the office.

Sandra:		Excuse me; Iíve reserved a car for today. 
		Here is my driverís license and credit card.
Clerk:		Oh yes, Iíve been expecting you. Will you 
		both be driving the car?
Sandra:		No, Iíll be the only driver.
Clerk:		And do you need insurance in case of an 
		accident?
Sandra:		No, my insurance policy will cover any 	
		damage to the car.
Clerk:		(He makes notes on the paper.) Please sign 
		here.
Sandra:		Iíd like to inspect the car before I sign 
		anything.
Clerk:		The car is in perfect condition.
Donita:		Just sign the paper so we can get going. 
		There will be a lot of traffic soon.
Sandra:		No, itís important to check the condition 
		of the car. I donít want to get charged for any
		damage that wasnít my fault.
		They go outside to inspect the car. 
Clerk:		Hmmm. I didnít notice this dent when the 
		car was returned. And hereís a scratch.
Donita:		Itís a good thing you asked to check it 
		over.
Sandra:		If you will circle the drawing of damage 
		spots on your paper, I will be glad to sign it.
Clerk:		Of course. Hereís the paper and the keys. 
		When will you be returning it?
Sandra:		I made arrangements to return it to the car 
		rental at the Seattle airport. Do you have 
		that information? (She signs the paper.)
Clerk:		No, I donít. Iíll have to ask my boss about 
		it. She isnít here yet. 
Donita:		(Groans.) Another problem! Do you think fate 
		is trying to keep us from going on this trip?
Sandra:		Who else could I talk to about this?
		We have a long drive ahead of us and need to
		leave soon to avoid all the traffic.
Clerk:		Maybe I can find something in your 		
		reservation paperwork. (Looks through file 
		folder.) Here it is. You are going to leave 
		the car at our airport office. 
Sandra:		Yes! We had better get going. Do you have 
		any maps?
Clerk:		Not at this office. You would have to drive 
		to the downtown office in Salem to get one.
Donita:		Letís stop at triple A on the way. They 
		have a lot of maps for members. (They go outside
		and get in the car.)
Sandra:		I could hardly keep from laughing when he 
		said we would have to drive 20 miles out of our
		way to get a map!
Donita:		I know! But now the adventure can begin.
Sandra:		Maybe we should ďcross our fingersĒ for 
		good luck? (She laughs.)
Donita:		And our arms and legs, too?
Sandra:		I donít think I can drive like that!
		Eight hours later, they have arrived in Seattle
		and returned the car. It has been raining hard
		and both women are very tired. An airport shuttle
		takes them to the hotel. They make arrangements
		for a Ďwake-upĒ call and transportation to the
		airport. They have to be at the airport two
		hours before the flight leaves. 
Donita:		Iím tempted to just sleep in my clothes, 
		since we have to be up at 4:00a.m.
Sandra:		Thatís a good idea, and then we donít have 
		to unpack anything.
Donita:		What if the hotel clerk forgets to call us?
Sandra:		(Sleepily.) Itís all computerized through 
		the phone. The computer wonít forget. Night.  
Donita:		O.K. Iíll try to relax until tomorrow. 	
		Goodnight.
