PRAISE Scotty. Scotty for President. You saved me c. $1,341.80! One of your videos suggested videotaping rental car BEFORE leaving their parking lot, to capture rental car AND rental place storefront. Last FRI I snapped 13 photos (all angles) before starting up a rental (remembering your sage advice). Then e-mailed 13 photos + Rental Contract to myself & filed it away. Returned car today. Mgr. was out there rubbing her hand over fender, came in, quickly said "I'm filling out a 'DAMAGE REPORT' for that fender you bent." Showed her Friday's photo, same fender... in HER parking lot. She said, OK & didn't charge me. Repair might've run $1,200 say? Folks, photograph rental car before driving off! Also photograph ODOMETER before speeding away. She wanted to charge me ANOTHER $141.80 for 702-mi. (Friday guy must've entered wrong mileage?) I showed her odometer-- I zeroed Trip Meter before splitting FRI. Today it read "248" not 702-mi. THANKS Scotty!!! Would've been up "S**thole Creek" if not for my PHOTOS! You're right: Smartphone photos are timestamped "20180112" = 12JAN2018, Friday. Wow, you saved the day. WHAT WOULD I HAVE DONE WITHOUT THOSE PHOTOS, huh?
