I haven’t had time to post lately – mainly because Amy and I have been dealing with the rigors of the auto insurance world. Amy was rear-ended last week (yes, a week after we replaced the transmission) and we’ve been on a rollercoaster ride of stress and turmoil ever since.
Luckily everybody was ok, but even though it was a minor accident for which Amy was not at fault, the other party’s insurance is being a major pain. We had gotten an estimate before the claims adjuster came, so we were confident that it would be fixed. But the claims adjuster for Mercury insurance went WAY over the estimate (big surprise to us) and wanted to total our poor happy Honda. At this point Amy and I decided that this would be feasible…over our cold, dead bodies.
So, we talked to our insurance company (State Farm) and they are going to take our deductible, fix the car, and pay us back from the claim they make against Mercury. Lesson’s learned from this fiasco: STAY FAR, FAR AWAY FROM MERCURY AUTO INSRANCE, State Farm has really great customer service, and never, never get rear-ended.
