Thanks for the rose and good thoughts! ...and you have me laughing over here - a good thing today! Yes, take all the extra time you need to pack and then just put the suitcase by the door while we figure out how to make it happen without losing our jobs!!!
They're not really giving me much of an option either, it turns out. I have to take the car to the body shop for them to give another estimate. If it's higher than the assessment from the Ins co assessor, they may cover another couple hundred but that's probably it. My choices would be, pay the difference myself, take what they offer me which will probably be lower than the original estimate because they won't pay more than the value of the car...not much right now.... and then I turn the car over to them and go buy a new (used) one. It would barely be enough for a decent down payment. It's really crazy now though, because it sounds like they'll pay more to fix it...but won't give me the same amount toward another car. I think my best bet is to see what the total is...and tell them, I just want it safe to drive with a rear door that opens and closes properly. Not into spending for looks...the car is OLD but would have gone another 100k miles, so I've been told...
So that's the story - and yes, I understand...I'm ANGRY too at the bimbo that was texting!!!
Hope you and the fur faces are well - Hugs to you all from all of us!
I hope your allergies are better, I splurged and bought Clariton and it seemed to work. I feel my condition or allergies coming on now, but I'll see how long I can last before taking another pill. its been about 16 hours since the last dose. Feel better soon. 20 days ago
