So I got my insurance bill this month and its 13% higher for this 6-month period than for the LAST 6-month period. Weak! Its probably to pay for all those stupid animated commercials that they run during football. Theyre all “We got permission to raise our rates in California, so every policyholder is seeing an increase!” No tickets, no accidents… Im pretty sure I even had a ticket fall off due to the 3-year thing – my rate should have dropped, not upped. (Is upped the opposite of dropped?) Now I have to begin the arduous trek of calling insurance people and having them go “wait, THIS is your drivers record? You want WHAT from us? HAHAHAHAHA!” and then putting me on hold for 5 minutes only to come back with “Im sorry, weve stopped insuring automobiles as of six minutes ago. Good luck!”
All that aside, Ill probably fail to find anything cheaper than this, as I have my copious notes from last time Ill bet that everywhere has raised their rates in California (13%?!) due to the high cost of fuel making it more expensive to answer phones.
Grumble, grumble. Pix from Christmas, coming soon.
