Name calling

It's wrong to call an insurance adjuster a jack-ass, it insults the jack-ass. (Apologies to someone, Mark Twain maybe.)



This is Jethro, the mini-donkey at our stable. We're very much in love.



Jethro, yes, I would like a kiss, but you've got a booger.

Does All State know how many clicks your blog gets?

Margaret said...

Oh, AH, you and all your lovesick fans. How you flaunt them.

Jethro said...

Don't worry about me, Margaret. I play the field.

Hee haw

BaysideLife said...

I can see the attraction. Jethro is adorable and certainly more desirable than and All State adjuster.

Jean Spitzer said...

Jethro's great. I can see the attraction.

Maybe there's a "supervisor" you can talk to? Or maybe the insured's agent can get you a name or help? After all, it's his liability.

'nuff said.

Petrea Burchard said...

Do ask for a supervisor if you're not getting what you want.

Allstate clerk: "I'm sorry, I can't do that."

You (nicely): "Okay, thanks for your help. Please connect me with someone who can."

I've tried this and usually what happens is they actually can do that.

"First, kill all the insurance adjusters." I'm pretty sure Shakespeare said that. Sorry to hear about the accident, Karin.

I heard back. But they wanted to do something perhaps tricky. I know this because I google.

So my car is finally getting to the collision repair shop, but, well, more to follow. In case you're ever in this situation, I will provide the map and show you all the detours.

Seems you’ve got a new reliable friend there.

wv: Jethro

Btw: wth is booger?

Virginia said...

WEll I'm happy to report that MAYBE....my OLD BOOGER is actually going to be traded in for a newer model tomorrow. I've been in car hell and credit report hell and no funds hell. We could could collaborate for some kind of sitcom I'm thinking.

Kick some butt KB!!!

Shell Sherree said...

Move over, KB, I'll kiss him, even with a booger. He's adorable! {I'm sure you did sneak a kiss anyway...} Thinking of you and wishing I could wave my wand and fix everything for you.

Birdman said...

Hahahaha!

Pasadena Adjacent said...

Introduce us? I want to meet Jethro (seriously).

Vanda said...

Accidents suck. I hope you get your car back soon. Jethro is cute though. Just to stay with the theme you should've taken a picture of him from behind too.

altadenahiker said...

He's a heartbreaker, isn't he?

WV: undit. Like an accident, what is dit cannot be undit.

Carolynn said...

LOL. Oh, man. You crack me up. He's so cute, I'da kissed him anyway. Surely there was some hugging that was enjoyed by all parties...?

Patrizzi Intergarlictica said...

Ooooohhhhhh kiss kiss kiss I love Jethro.

Brenda's Arizona said...

Perhaps you owe Jethro an apology for posting a booger photo. As for the insurance guy... he can wait.

I've often found that really cute guys have questionable hygiene.

Maybe you should rename Jasper Mayhem:

Let me try that corner again:

Paula, your link made me smash my head into the keyboard. So thanks a lot, I have no coverage for that.

Susan Campisi said...

Does Jethro live in Altadena? He's adorable. I want to go give him a big kiss.

Sorry Hiker, didn't mean to upset you. I've been right where you are and I'll never forget talking to the other driver's agent, listening to him blatantly blow me off, telling me to do all the work and make my insurance pay for everything, meaning I would lose the amount of my deductible. Eventually the State of Florida stepped in and when everything was said and done I was paid the full amount but they rounded it off to the nearest lower dollar amount knowing I wouldn't come after them for those few pennies. I'm sure the agent was sitting in an office just like the one Bandit described and to tell you the truth, I felt kinda sorry for him.

Banjo52 said...

I want a Jethro. Wonder what the zoning commission would say . . .

sonia a. mascaro said...

Jethro looks adorable!

I think you will like to visit Justina's blog. She has a beautiful farm in New Mexico with lovely donkeys. The link to her Morning Bray Farm is Here.

I hope you have a nice weekend!

Kaori said...

Hope you have the insurance adjuster begging and crying when you're through with him. After all, you have Jethro the handsome by your side ;D

altadenahiker said...

Susan or PA, as I'll prevail upon one of you to drop me off when I buy a new car, we'll stop by the stable to see da man. Meal time is preferable, because the boy can sing.

Susan Campisi said...

My heart's all aflutter at the possibility.

Marjie said...

Oh, Jethro, don't taunt Karin like that!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Ohhhhhh, Jethro looks SOOOO Very Sweet! I'd like to kiss him, too!

My Verification word is:
tosettle.....lol!

Devon Ellington said...

Oh, how adorable!

You're right -- don't want to insult that beautiful one!

TheChieftess said...

Jethro says...You're NOT in good hands with All State!!!

Pat Tillett said...
