A ne’er-do-wel is somebody who sucks the life out of an experience – some are easy to spot and others have a veneer of fake and Professor here in the told us an amusing story about some seemingly nice people who did not have the same values.
The hire car was done on the cheap, no spare car seats so yes it was car for x people but without anything else in it, and ignore the facts that you also have luggage, the reputability of the insurance is a point also deemed invalid although it perhaps was best that it was not tested which was a start.
Others involved with Prof soon wised up the the ne’er-do-wel and it soon became tense.
It sounded funny to us secondhand, but i am sure it became grating.
Professor learnt a lesson (at a un-recovered cost) so there’s hope for you humans.
It is something that will not happen again to him.
