    $#*&@~% UHAUL!

    yeah, so I reserved a 12ft trailer last week and they called me today to tell me where I could pick it up tomorrow morning. I went by the place to arrange a pickup time, and guess what?


    They didnt have a 12ft trailer, they had an 8ft trailer. There is no way I can fit my desk, couch, bed, and bookcase in an 8ft trailer. FOR AN HOUR I waited while they figured out why they didnt have one. "it's a glitch in the computer"

    Farking bull****. Somebody screwed up BIG TIME here. Now, instead of getting my trailer in the morning here in Starkville, I have to drive 40 miles west and pick it up. When I reminded them that "this was not my ****-up" (my exact words, btw), they told me they didnt have the manpower to bring one to me. "Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part," was my response. They offered me $20 off the rental for the inconvinience, but I reminded them that at current gas prices it was going to cost me that much to make the 80 mile round trip, plus the fact that it would add over an hour to my move time.

    I have to leave here by 11am tomorrow in order for me to make it to my new apartment before the office closes. If I don't get there till after it closes, I have to get a hotel room because they won't give me a key after hours.

    The last 2 times I have rented from Uhaul, they charged me $1100 for a truck with no cruise control, radio, or air conditioning, and then charged me $45 for over-mileage the second time for the trip back here (which they charged me only $300 for that same truck that cost me $1100 3 weeks before). That was a neat trick, seeing as I took the EXACT SAME ROUTE BOTH TIMES!!!

    Uhaul caused me to buy a truck for this move, I believe I'll be buying a trailer as well next time.

    Yeah, they are *****es about reservations. In the fine print it says they will have the equipment you reserved OR something comparable for you. They tried to switch a 30' truck for a 20' truck and a trailer to tow behind it on me once. I threw hell for it and finally they found a 30' truck for me to use.

    I may be the forum jackass, but that'd be the forum *******. You registered yesterday and you talk to people like that? Must be compensating for something.

    Dude, I didnt buy some $40,000 Silverado. I bought a $1500 1987 Bronco, which I'll probably sell when I get to where I'm going.

    Wait, check his sig. And his initials. EYP's first name is Jay (short for jason, IIRC). That's EYP all right. Guess I didnt give him a good enough raping last time.
