Another Installment of Middle East Living, this time the car rental return.
Company: Umm the car is dirty. You need to return it in the same condition.
Me: Ok yes it is a bit dirty for sure…umm…
Company: Why is it so dirty?
Me: Well honestly from sand, wind, and rain…
Company: Where did the sand come from?
Me: Umm we live in Jordan…. But also we went to Azraq like we said.
Company: You need to clean the car.
Company: You need to clean the car. You need to return the car in the same way you took it…
Me: It’s not damaged, or anything, it’s fine
Them: No it needs to be returned the same way we gave it to you.
Us: Ok fine, we’ll clean the car just give us soap and water and we’ll wash the car.
Them: Umm…ok no problem, you are our customer…it is no problem.
Me: Thank you very much. See you later
(I leave the store and he calls after me)
Him: One more thing
Me: Um yes, what is it?
Him: Here take this….
(To my surprise he gives me a rose)
Me: Shukrun. [Thank You]
Him: Afwan [You’re Welcome]
Definitely the first time I ever received a rose from car rental company…
