leaving articles in the trunk of your rental car
      #1657067 - 07/20/15 10:00 AM (173.72.8.224)

Since I had three newbies with me last week in St. M, I constantly stressed the fact that nothing should be left in the trunk of the rental car.
One day, on the way back from Philipsburg, we stopped at Market Garden for some grocery shopping. I opened the trunk so they could remove their purchases (jewelry, clothing, etc.)
After shopping for about 1/2 hour, we returned to the car to see that the trunk was wide open ... no one had ever closed it, or it hadnít been closed tightly and it had popped open.

Also, I then discovered that one of the newbies had left her purchases (including new Zhaveri jewelry) in the trunk!

This does not end how youíre anticipating ........................ everything was still in the trunk, untouched. Perhaps it was because it is such a busy area, but Iím chalking it up to dumb luck!

You should have taken them all to the casino after that.

You'll come around again. It's only a matter of topic and time.

I'm so glad to hear that all of your friends' purchases were still there! We always tell people not to leave anything in the trunk that they wouldn't want to lose. We will leave beach stuff like towels, noodles, hats but nothing of any value. Knock on wood, we've never encountered any problems.
