    this sucks, but what you should do is creat a moneybomb calling out the bastards that left this guy. give us the persons name that left you, then we can create a money bomb and make sure we have a thread dedicated to this person who left someone!!

    Interesting. When mdh went to Washington, DC a couple of years ago, the same thing happened to him, and he had to stay at BradleyinDC's home until I could figure out a way to get him back (we were broke).

    I can't recall the names of the people that abandoned him to begin with, but it'd be sort of par for the course if it was the same people.

    Call my paranoid, but most rental car places will not accept cash, either. They want a credit card in case you decide to abscond with the vehicle or cause damage to it.

    The more I thought about this (I had to take a break and make some soup), the more I think this guy's either full of beans or up a creek.

    It's Sunday. The only way this person would even be able to get money in time would be if it were Western Union'd to him at a given location. That is going to mean big fees just to send the money. PayPal will not make it to his bank account in time.

    Even if he got a whole lot of cash right now, rental car places (as mentioned previously) generally don't just take cash. They want a credit card in case you decide to keep the car, wreck the car, or otherwise cost them money. Has he gotten a quote on a rental car? If not, how would he know precisely how much a cash rental would be? If so, why isn't it mentioned?

    Too many variables for me.

    Has this dude no family that can help? If I were stuck in this predicament, the first thing I'd be doing is crying to my daddy.

    Yes if someone wants to give me a credit card number I can buy it online, and send the receipt via email. That way he can only use the money to travel on.

    I told him about this thread as soon as I posted, so I'm guessing the fact that he hasn't posted in this thread himself means that he's found a way home.

    I'm sorry,
    I didn't read the whole thread.
    Were his thumbs removed in a horrible accident, or is he just deformed?
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
