This made me laugh...

but you may not, unless you read a lot of fine print. I got an email from Enterprise Rent-a-Car. For whatever reason, aka bored, I decided to read the email. I can get a free double upgrade. woo hoo. I have no reason to rent a car. Anyways, I go down to read the fine print, in case for some reason I want to find a reason to rent a car. This was the fine print (I changed the color of the fun parts, if you want to just read those):


Hi, there. A few things to remember about our free double upgrade offer. First, it's awesome. Second, it's valid on advance reservations made for an Economy through Intermediate size vehicle at standard daily or weekly rates at participating locations within North America. Find participating locations by calling 1 800 rent-a-car. Whew. Okay. Moving on. A 26-day maximum applies. Rental must end on or before February 10, 2010. The upgraded car class will not appear on your reservation, but we promise it will be applied upon arrival if there's an available car in the next two higher classes — free of charge, naturally. Also, this offer can't be combined with other coupons, offers or discounted rates. As you might imagine, standard rental qualifications apply. Other restrictions, including holidays and blackout dates, may apply. Pickup and drop-off service is subject to geographic and other restrictions. What else, what else? Oh yeah: void where prohibited. Now, that wasn't so bad, was it? Reserve at enterprise.com.

Yes, I have a dry humor and find this very funny. I would read more fine print if they all made it this enjoyable.
