When you rent a car, you have to put your signature on contract. You are well 
aware at the time you hand over your money that you are entered into a firm 

On the other hand, if I handed over $30, received the keys, and never signed 
anything, then that rental "contract" shoved in the glove box loses a lot of 
its importance.
