Totally agree with the sentiment of knowing yourself when you're alone. Some days I'm at peace with it, other days it's like rage against the world. But if you can deal with it with a sense of humor, that always helps.

It's because it mean something to Hipster to be very proud of, because there is no way they could be proud of themself in any way. Get a real watch, get a real phone, but don't get half of each like a technohipster... My OPinion

Comment on Hertz Australia: Well Worth Avoiding by Frances Leigh

Thank you all so much for your posts. I rented a car from hertz in Sydney and ws involved in an accident. I was hit from behind on a freeway and sandwiched between the bumper bar and the ambulance in front of me. This happened on a friday afternoon and they have then said as I am not at fault I would not havqe to pay the $4000 excess but then later was told this was not the case. I have rung a solicitor, stopped my card as they still have $200 of mine and I am receiving late night texts from 'Steve who told me that the excess would not apply to me as I was the victim of an accident and not at fault. His texts messages 'have always been late at night and he is somehow associated with the licencee of this branch. This was my first major accident in 27 years; neither of them was I at fault. He has threatened to attend my ageing parents address with the police...all at 11pm. They and everyone I know is aware of this. Even the ambo officer is stunned. I am disgusted, furious and beyond stunned myself. I have waited all week for an incident report or call from them. Nothing. Just late night abusive texts last night saying he is going to report the car stolen. If it was not for all your posts on here, twitter and social media then they would no doubt have charged me the $4000 excess that they have charged so many other people. After reading all of these complaints I put a stop and dispute in with my bank. I have called the branch, Head Office to find out who they are insured with...everything. Not one email or report. Just late night threat. I also spoke to DFAT and they suggested writing to them first before they have an officer investigate. What if I was in hospital. Thank God we are all walked away. The car has not been paid for two days but they have $200 deposit of mine. Why cant they use that? I have emailed them suggesting this. In my extensive week of research I also learned about the Europcar Aus case recently where they were sued. My first call in the morning will be to a solicitor. I am slightly injured but fine, struggling to drive the car I am still paying for and making calls to them and everyone I can to find what their game is. I can not wait to take action regarding this. I go to bed at 9:30 and last night was up till 3am because of threatening texts from Steve (no surname known by Hertz) threatening to report the car stolen; demading the address of the car and insisting that no one drive it. No one has driven it. I have barely driven it since the accident as my wrists are a little tender. Two days overdue fee....Use the $200 you still have of mine and email me the report I asked for! Beyond furious at them. I think a class action suit against Hertz in not very far away indeed. Please feel free to contact me if you have had similar experiences. I am a very thorough researcher and networker and I hate bullies. Even corporate ones.

This theory seems baseless, they might have 'important' documentation to file before closing.
