Apparently Hertz was barraged with complaint e-mails and letters, and it cancelled the idea before it was ever put into place. Isn’t it great that consumers have the power to change what a company does by speaking their minds?! Sites such as, and
For sure, consumers are not always right either. That’s why the critical masses have the say, and not just one or two people. So, if a company treats you badly, don’t just go away angry. Complain.
Be happy. Be good.
