Not Easy Being Green · I land­ed at SFO and, rolling in­to the Rent-a-car cen­ter af­ter the usu­al stu­pid­i­ty, saw this big green sign: “Rent a hy­brid and get $15 off!” Since Avis more of­ten than not foists an over­sized mis­shapen thirst-crazed Detroit Mis­take on me, I thought it sound­ed good. So I bounced up to the counter and said “It says $15 less for a hy­brid, I’ll take one.” They looked sur­prised and, af­ter con­sult­ing their com­put­er­s, in­formed me that the hy­brid was a $30/­day up­grade, and the $15 a one-time re­bate for the whole rental of how­ev­er many days. Then they sent me on my way in an­oth­er pa­thet­ic SUV.
