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.

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

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

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. He's a heartbreaker, isn't he?

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

    ReplyDelete
  15. 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...?

  16. Ooooohhhhhh kiss kiss kiss I love Jethro.

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

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

  25. 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.

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

  27. 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!

  28. 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

  29. 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.
