you could have saved time and effort by just admitting you are trying to avoid admitting you fellow citizens are not impressed with a business practice that reminds them of abandoned shopping carts. So you cannot provide links to rental cars just left on the street, in parks or in front of apartments. I didnít think so.

starting a subject for debate and dragging it into a diatribe against societies favored treatment of a different subject is intellectual bate and switch.
