So we have a company policy that for any real road trip we are supposed to rent a car instead of expensing our mileage. It ends up being cheaper for the company to do this. In reality, very few people do it however. They usually use their personal vehicles and expense all the mileage. Today my manager made a point of enforcing this seldom used rule with me. He said he doesn't want it to look like I'm abusing the system. I didn't push it, and agreed to rent a car for my trip. It is the rule after all. Co-workers have been bugging me about it since I got the car, saying "Wow you get all this mileage reimbursement for free". I try to explain that I've "prepaid" my fuel expenses with my giant battery, while they are paying their fuel costs as they are incurred, but they still don't get it, and perceive that I'm taking advantage of the system. Anybody else go through something like this?
