Hertz tried to push on us a 9-seater Mercedes mini-bus for the drive from Amsterdam to Zurich. "Your wife will love all the room in the back to put all the things she's going to buy."
But we did not love driving something the size of a UPS van through the streets of Amsterdam. And how much fun could this thing be at the pump, at $4.50 per gallon?
So we called from the cell phone and told them we were bringing it back.
"Well, then ... how are you going to get to Zurich?"
One intense scene later, we drove off in a Corolla wagon.
