Tony Hawk is a skateboarding legend. Here’s a video of him performing the first 900-degree spin on a skateboard.
Being world famous does come with drawbacks however. Tony Hawk recently attempted to rent a car and even signed up to skip the counter and go to his car directly.
When he went out to pick up his car, he didn’t see his name on the monitor. He had to go back inside the rental agency to find out why his car wasn’t ready.
The rental car agent thought someone was pulling a prank by renting under the name Tony Hawk. The rental card agent then deleted it from the monitor because he thought it was fake.
At rental car agency, can’t find my name on the monitor to find my car, go inside & wait in line. Finally get to the front, agent sees me & says “you really are Tony Hawk”
Me: um, yes. I was looking for my name outside on the list
Him: “I deleted it because I thought it was fake”

Tony Hawk seemed to be good spirited in all of this and I’m sure the rental car agent won’t make that mistake again.
