To me, insurance is probably one of the least-used items I have ever spent any amount of money on. It’s required by law, so companies can extract pound after pound of flesh out of you since they know you HAVE to have it. At least in this day and age you can shop around a bit, so you know just how much flesh it is they are extracting before you sign on the dotted line (usually with one of those pens that taps into your artery). Also, the only thing worse than the state requiring it, is when you go to buy a car (new OR used), you have to have the “whole enchilada”, otherwise known as FULL coverage.
They say this is for your protection, but we all know what is really going on….it’s more for THEIRS.
Also, I can’t believe the audacity our car lot has when they call our house and then talk to my better half like we’re some criminals due to a miscommunication with our previous insurance carrier (note: I said PREVIOUS carrier). They misunderstood and got me in a pinch, so they are gone (read: POOF!). I’ll be glad when we’re in the hands of the financing company, and not the dealer, so that way I don’t have to deal with them anymore. The financing company is wonderful, so I’ll be glad to deal with them after this first part is over.
Raven got in some new shoes again the other day, and I think she’s trying to guard the 14’s from me since she knows I have a thing for cool heels. I think it’s time I put some wear on the ones I already have before lunging for more – the closet is getting a bit full on the bottom.
