Last week while sitting under the dryer at the beauty shop - yes, I go weekly to get my "do" a man told me he had just backed into my car. Not ever having seen him before I told him that I hoped he had good insurance.
The poor man had just brought his wife for her weekly appointment and was leaving the parking lot. Now - get this picture - my Ford Taurus station wagon was sitting all by herself. ..no cars close to her - just minding her own car business...when this big ugly pickup backed into the passenger side. I am sure my sweet automobile let out a small scream when her side was punctured, scraped and dented.
Anyway, the man gave me information regarding himself and insurance company. He immediately left the shop and headed to the insurance company. Before I left he came back and said they (insurance company) was expecting my call.
As I was leaving I called DH and told him briefly what had happened. Good thing I did as the insurance company was calling the house before I got home. I know Leon would have been beside himself had the insurance company called before I had a chance to tell him.
Got an estimate on Friday and turned it in...was advised by phone call an adjuster would be getting in touch with me and arrange a time to inspect the car. Hadn't heard anything so I called the office today...spoke to two people - they seemed to not be able to find the claim. Finally I was told someone would call me back.
Yes, I am taking notes of who I spoke with and the highlights of the conversation.
Stay tuned for the continuation of this drama...meanwhile we will be driving a car that looks terrible.
Thought for the day: Praise God - I could have been in the car when the ugly pickup came roaring backwards!
