Question: I recently rented an SUV from Enterprise in Tenafly, N.J. A manager and I walked around the car before I left the lot. Neither of us saw any damage. A week later, when I returned the car, a regional manager, who was taller than both myself and the store manager, noticed two outward-facing dings in the roof of the vehicle. He even asked if anyone had gotten mad and punched the roof, or carried any cargo that could have caused the damage. The store manager who had missed the damage on the first inspection had to climb up into the car to get a look at the top; at that point, he said he never could have missed it. Enterprise wants us to pay for the damage.

Zack Wheeler left the New York Mets and their fans hovering around the panic button Wednesday morning. The franchise's best pitching prospect hurt himself hitting.
