Great update!

Kudos to Doe for taking responsibility for her needs. Hope y'all are having a wonderful, relaxing time.

Result!  Everyone is a winner - less wear & tear on the compact, Doe gets a comfortable ride, Syfygeek has a shiny spine.  ;D

I suspect Doe wouldn't have offered the use of her SUV if Syfygeek hadn't spoken up, but I'm actually quite impressed that Doe came up with ther 'counter-offer'.  Hope you all had a great time.

Great update!

Isn't this how etiquette is supposed to work with reasonable adults? There can be conflict, but it can be resolved.

I was thinking this also.  I think it's a great resolution, but it would've gone more smoothly had Doe simply offered her vehicle to begin with when indicating her issue with the smaller vehicle.  At that point, Syfygeek and BFF could've said, "Great as our SUV is not usable right now."
