Maybe she’s not covered in farm dirt when she shows up at the counter!
Seriously, I think my mistake was calling the office to see what was available first, rather than going online and doing my reservation there. By speaking to me before the reservation was made, they were able to check whether I’d be using the credit vs debit. There’s a world of difference between catching that sort of detail on the phone before the reservation has even been made, versus while the customer is standing there, on a schedule, expecting a car which has already been paid for. If I found myself really truly needing a car from Enterprise in the future, that’s the route I’d take. But given the 3rd degree I got from Enterprise, it’ll be a cold day in heck before I’m that desperate.
