We were just Thankful that he was okay!
It was supposed to be done in one week!
But that was 50 days ago....fifty days!
Each week, our insurance agent calls....Me, and tells me the progress or lack there of! At first it was like...okay at least they are hopefully doing a good job and not rushing it. Things happened during that time that we could have surely used 2 cars for....would have helped us out tremendously. One being when my MIL was hospitalized...twice within one weeks time. Another was when she passed. My husband had to drive a 45 mins home to pick me up so we could drive down to be with his Dad during all of this. I could have gone myself....had we had both cars.
Those calls from the insurance agent have just gotten
funny frustrating now. When I see the number pop up I am not surprised when he tells me....Guess why I'm calling?! He called Weds. around 4 p.m. (it was supposed to be done Monday, he never called that day), it's usually at the end of the day, to tell me that the place ordered the wrong air conditioner clip and that is the hold up. Seems they used that a few weeks ago! How can a place that is so highly recommended "order" the wrong part for a car? So, says the insurance guy, it's supposed to be done Today....or Monday at the latest! Then it will be 53 days....right?
I am the one without the car! I am the one who has to wait until a daughter has a day off or a few hours to spend taking me to run errands. This has been a real life inconvenience, not having 2 cars available everyday!
We have a high deductible too....$500.00! Five Hundred Dollars....and we have been with out our car 50 days. Maybe we should charge them $10 a day for taking so long to fix our car. Then if it is done Today....day 50 we'd be even. Because if I did my math right that would equal $500.00!
Oh yeah, our insurance agent said had we taken it to an @r0%ress(ive approved shop (they failed to say that at the time), it would have had to be done in 12 days!! Twelve Days!!
