I travel for work. I enjoy it deeply. We've covered that.
There's one thing, though, that's sort of driving me a little crazy.
I rent a car while I'm gone and maybe there's more than one person with me. Hertz generously provides a couple of keys for the car. Unfortunately, they do so on a completely unbreakable ring.
Please tell me, Hertz, what's your plan for the 2nd key? Do you think that I'll take the little bolt cutter that I've scooted past airport security and break it apart? Do you hope then that upon the return of my car, I'll get my fancy little acetylene tank out and weld the sucker back together?
What? You don't take an acetylene tank and personal welding kit with you when you travel?
So far, TSA hasn't asked more than a couple of questions. I just have to tell them I rent from Hertz and there's more than one person that needs to use the car. They understand my plight and the need for said tools without another sideways look.
Doesn't it work like that for you in airport security? What?!
