Travel Tuesday: Fighting with Priceline

Priceline.com - Travel, airline tickets, cheap flights, hotels, hotel rooms, rental cars, car rentalDo you remember my post on Priceline and Rental Cars?  You can read it here.

I bid on rental cars for Christmas and while my bid was not accepted at something like $12 a day, they came to me with a counteroffer of $17 a day that I couldn’t refuse.  And that was CHRISTMAS.

Now I am trying to for a car in Feb and the listed rates are over $70 a day!  What?   So needless to say that my low-ball bidding is not working.  Yet.  But I have patience and believe that the rates will come down.  And if they don’t, all I have wasted was my own time.

And maybe some of theirs.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
