No, not the kind you cure your homemade soap in. Sorry.
Last night, in the wonderful neighborhood my mother lives in, well beyond midnight, someone busted out the back window on her van, dented the side at the gas tank, and literally scraped it down to metal.
Neighbors didn't hear anything, of course. I'm surprised she didn't either.
She called and waited for the men in blue vigilantly watching the streets of Winnebago County (sarcasm is a bit thick, I know) to come out today. She took several pictures of the damage -- good thing, considering the officer busted out the rest of the glass at the back window as he checked it over. Brilliant training.
She's called insurance and that's where my soapbox comes in. If my car, safely parked in my driveway, or even on the road for that matter, gets molested and damagedto the extent there is no longer a window, and my insurance coverage is top of the line, paid in full and never been used...IF IF IF...I would expect something more than "we can't get your car in to an adjuster until Wednesday."
I don't think so. I think, given the storms and rain, given my now wide open to the elements vehicle with the great insurance coverage, better get more than a Wednesday appointment. It better be picked up today, before the rains.
Man, that just aggravates me to no end. No wonder folks don't have insurance. What's the point in paying those high pricedprotection payments just to get the brush off when you try to get some action?
I think she needs to take photo's of the van interior without stain or even wear showing, darn near showroom new. Then, after these rains come through and the mildew settles in, they can simply replace the entire vehicle and she can start new again.
Wednesday my aunt fanny. GRRRRR!
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
