Imagine my dismay as I was rushing out the door on my way to a morning class only to spot a $52 parking ticket on the windshield of my car. I looked all around the area where I was parked to check for any possible infractions and then looked at the ticket and was stunned to see it was for parking in a two-hour zone overnight without a proper permit. This would be understandable, except for the fact that I do have a proper permit that is registered to my car, up to date, and clearly displayed on my windshield.

I just bought a little red car, and the other day, at a stoplight, I looked down at my hand on the stick shift, and suddenly I was seven years old, sitting in the back of our little red Ford Escort, and Dad was taking us fishing. My dad had a black mustache. He liked jeans and T-shirts, and he wore them until they fell apart. He kept a handkerchief in his pocket, for his nose, for our noses. He wore a heavy belt buckle he'd gotten from the Outdoor Writers Association of America.

Size doesn't always matter. Except when it comes to rental cars. For safety's sake, I want to drive something as big as I can afford, or at least as big as what I drive at home -- a Ford Taurus.According to the U.S. government's EPA standards, my Taurus is a midsize car. So when I went hunting for a rental car recently, I set my sights on at least a midsize.But as I called around to do a little comparison shopping, I found that the EPA's midsize is not necessarily a rental-car company's midsize.
