^ People in small cars park stupid too!
I had this nitemare last night that the new insurance company would hit the checking account too soon.
I asked her more than once if the first payment would be on our credit card.
To get a good price, it's a full payment for a year for the home insurance.
6 months in advance for both vehicles. About $600.
I have plenty of room on the credit card...if they hit my checking account today, the money would not be there.  I hope they keep in mind that the policy does not even srart until 9-13.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

Tell me about it!!!

I just got back from voting in the state & local primary elections, after which I hit the grocery store. I came out and some idiot in a smallish car had parked so crooked, she took up 1½ spaces.

I was one space over and some other idiot decided to squeeze his/her POS in between the other idiot's car and mine, making it almost impossible for me to get in my car.

I found a scrap piece of paper and wrote a nasty note which I stuck under the wiper then hocked a big glob of spit on the driver's side window.

Some months ago i did the same thing to some idiot at Walmart for the same reason.

I'm sick of these brainless a-holes.


Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I tried to mow the lawn, the transmission worked great! The damned ball joint kept coming loose on the steering.
I used a bungee cord to attach it to the lower control arm. Then, the engine started missing out.
 
WTF? Is this one of those days when everything I touch turns into sh*t?
 
The gas cap was keeping fuel from flowing freely, I just removed the fuel lines to check the filter and rate of flow.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

The new insurance policies went into effect today and they are already pissing me off!
 
I got an e-mail earlier today...
 
 

Allstate: Action needed to complete Drivewise enrollment.

 
Drivewise is Allstate's version of Snapshot from Progressive.
 
I'm going to look up exactly what the parameters are but they can see where you drive, how fast you drive.
Much like that Hum device from Verizon.
 
F*ck them!  They already know more about us, our home and our vehicles than I feel comfortable with.
 
 
I'm in the shower and I hear Leah raising hell..."WTF is going on out there?"
An Allstate inpector is here taking pictures and measurements.
 
These people remind me of State Farm, my wife's insurance company for many years.
An annual call to set up a meeting. "Let's review your coverage and assets"
These people make me sick...just a step above car salesmen, with a lot more at stake.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

Possibly an Equifax inspector.

They are verifying the info about your house, it's condition, the surrounding neighborhood, etc. submitted by the agent for the underwriter. Hard to believe I know, but left unchecked, some insurance agents will occasionally submit false info to underwriters in order to get a policy approved and get their commission.

I used to do that same job myself.

My first job out o college.

^ Yep, they had to verify the info I gave them online.
 
I was completely honest, they heard my angry bitch dog barking at them!
 
I'll try not to like you less for working for a f*cking insurance company. Wink

WinkThen you are keenly aware of why there are never any skid marks around a lawyer who was a 'hit & run' victim, being in such close proximity, work-wise...but again, ol'mule - it begs the question: did you have any friends when you were young and did you play nicely and share well?WinkLOL

Well, I didn't actually work for an insurance company.

I worked for Equifax, which is technically a credit reporting agency. One of the 'Big Three' which includes Equifax, Experion and Trans Union. 

I was mainly a background investigator, but we also did insurance underwriter verification reports as well.

Had the camera, measuring wheel, etc, etc.

I hope I didn't already agree to participate in this bullsurance!
 

What is a telematics device, and what does it measure?

A telematics device is generally a system that you install in your car that records information about your driving habits, such as the number of miles you drive, your speed, and how quickly you brake. These systems sometimes analyze the time of day when you drive, as well. If you use a telematics device from your insurer, you agree to allow the device to send this information to your insurance company. In some cases, if the data show you practice safe driving, you may become eligible for car insurance discounts. (If, however, the device shows that your driving habits are not as safe, typically, you are not penalized with higher premiums.)

The dog gave me another good scare. I needed to go out to get some stuff.
 
It's not uncommon for her (Leah) to lay down behind the loveseat.
 
I was concerned because she was not coming out from behind the couch.
 
I was not going to leave until I knew she was OK.
 
She had her right front paw stuck in her choker chain.  Crazy old bitch! I feel responsible when stuff like this happens.

I found a fun new way to torment these idiots that keep calling me.
 
Example: "Hi, I'm Heather with Credit Card Services. There is no problem with your account at this time but if you would like to lower your interest rates? Consider this your final notice. Push"...blah blah blah.
 
"final notice" I could only wish! You freaking idiots! Angry
 
I tell the guy...
"I want to talk to Heather!"  (Period of silence) LOL
"What have you done with her?"
"She called me!  And I love her!"
"I will speak to no one but Heather!"
 
He was pretty baffled..."Heather not here".
I laughed at him and hung up.

Here I am, minding my own business just trying to find something good on TV.
My phone rings....the caller ID says 000-000-0000. Oh! This is gonna be good! LOL
 
Another dipsh*t is calling from Microsoft, how anyone could fall for this scam is beyond me.
 
It doesn't take long till I am insulting his mother, in the worst way he could imagine. LOL
 
It's getting so I kinda get a kick out of their calls.  Idiots!!
 
 I'm stuck on the Esquire network...they are playing a Bond, James Bond 007 marathon.
The worst part of this is that every single commercial break, the fat Mountain Dew KickStart douchebag is doing his funky dance.

The end of watermelon season.  It hasn't happened yet, but it will soon.  The watermelons this year have been great.  I buy them in quarters so I can get the best.  It's more expensive, but it's worth it. 
 
Anyway, I've become hooked and am pissed that this can't last all year.  Can't science do something?  Monsanto, please!  I don't care what---just do it!

Freezing watermelon doesn't work too well (tried doing that to a few pieces.)  When it thaws, it turns to a soggy limp lump.  blech! Tongue

^  Yeah, no way.  Blending it into a juice is difficult, too, as you then have to strain all the froth out.  Besides, watermelon juice is nowhere near as good as the watermelon itself.
 
I've found there's really no good technique for picking out a decent watermelon, so now I buy the ones cut into quarters at the supermarket.  That way I can see what I'm getting.  If the fruit is cracked (or split apart), it's gonna be great.  An unripe or flavorless watermelon is an albatross in the fridge.

I did thump-testing this year (buying light, medium, and deep thumps.)  The deeper thumping ones seemed the most ripe, but it's still a crap shoot as far as finding good ones.  Can't grow my own anymore (or even squash & cukes) because the vine borers are here to stay (once hatched, they'll trash a plant in a day.)  I'd starve if I had to be a farmer...  LOL

I was having a pretty nice and normal afternoon...'ding dong' goes the doorbell.
 
Some people really have a lot of nerve, this dipsh*t from 'We Are Wisconsin' is at the door.
 
I crack the door open about 6 inches..."What do you want?" I asked the bald headed stranger.
 
He had some assorted pamphlets and a tablet in his hands.
 
I reach down and touch the No Soliciting sign I have on my door. "You didn't see this? This goes for political house calls too"!  I close the door and this douche is still talking..."But sir, how do I enter this on my tablet?"
 
I yell at him through the door, "get out of here!"  The dog is doing her part as always.
