I was so upset & pissed off this morning, my eyes still burn a little from crying so much (I suspect that I bawled like I did out of stress & being tired, too).

I called the auto body shop to see if they were close to being done with the repairs to my truck. HAHAHAHAHAHA! Right. I spoke to someone who got my file, & found out that JUST today, my adjuster had approved the repairs. JUST today. Let's run down the timeline.

I dropped my truck off on the 11th. I called my personal adjuster on the 12th, & left a voice mail. He didn't get back to me until the 13th, at which time I gave him the auto body's phone number & complete address. Well, the adjuster who's in charge of going out & looking at the vehicle didn't get out there until the 16th. And he didn't approve the repairs until today, the 19th. I have rented a car from the 11th-20th FOR ABSOLUTELY NO REASON. I have paid $30+ out of pocket for TEN DAYS for no reason. My truck just sat there for almost a full week. Unbelievable. Do I LOOK like I am made of money? Since I don't have a credit card, they take out $250 a pop from my checking account for the rental. The 11th, they took out $250. Today, they took out another $250. There went my rent. And apparently, I don't have the greatest rental coverage. I think it's only going to reimburse me $15/day up to a certain amount of days. Since I pay the rental coverage monthly, they ought to pay for the damn rental for however long it takes to repair the fucking truck. The insurance adjuster said it could take FIFTEEN DAYS to repair the truck. 15 days. So that's 15 more rental days in ADDITION to the wasteful 10 I have already paid for. Unbelievable. BUT...the body shop thinks it will take more like 5 days. Luckily for me, they had all the parts available, so they are getting them & beginning the repairs tomorrow. But..since the damn weekend is coming up, I won't get my truck back until probably mid-week next week...and that's being optimistic.

All this brings up many, many bitter, angry feelings. Read more here.Collapse )

Whew....that last entry was a loooong one...but I imagine that it makes for a fairly quick & somewhat fascinating read. more amusement....

This guy clicked that he wanted to meet me, on Hot or Not. I read his profile, & here's what it said: "Inteligence is an important factor."

Apparently not important enough to spell "intelligence" correctly.
