“Would you like a free upgrade?” the car rental manager asked me. I rented there a lot.

“Absolutely,” I responded. He tossed me the keys to a brand new Jaguar.

I rented from this location often. It was just down the street from the school where I used to serve. Near the rental place were two car dealerships, a Jaguar lot and a Ford lot. If I was getting a free upgrade that usually meant it was one of their service vehicles for the dealerships, which were usually new models.
