Now that’s a title isn’t it? LOL!! Did I get your attention? Now get your minds out of the gutter will you.
When I got home from work today I had a phone call from my auto body guy who met with the insurance appraiser yesterday regarding our car/deer encounter on Sunday night. He told me that the insurance company has agreed to fix the car but only with after market parts, not genuine Chrysler parts, because the car is 3 years old. I am ecstatic that they are going to fix my baby, but I am a little disappointed about the parts. I mean, we get boned every year with insurance costs, so shouldn’t they return my car to me the way it was. The after market parts are certified and everything, but you and I both know that they are probably not quite as good as true Chrysler parts. So, my body guy said it wouldn’t hurt to let them know that I wasn’t overly happy about the results of their appraisal, especially since there are only 66,000 km on the car.
I had to speak to another insurance adjuster when I first called because the one assigned to our claim was talking to another customer, but I told him I wanted a call back from my adjuster. While I was waiting, I went outside to water and check on my flowers (some of which are still looking quite sickly after the recent snow and frost), and I found a couple that are obviously very hardy and haven’t suffered at all. I ran inside, grabbed my gorilla pod (tiny tripod) and my extender tubes,and did the quickest photo shoot ever so that I could get back inside to the phone (as it turned out the stupid insurance guy never did call me back :().
I know that these photos could have been a lot better if I had more time to experiment, and if it hadn’t been so windy, but I still like them. They make me smile, and when dealing with insurance companies, trust me you need to keep smiling :).
