Now I've gotten all riled up again!
A few months ago, when I bought my new minivan, (shuddup) I was very surprised to get my insurance bill and it went up. It actually said the "safety rating was removed". How can the safety rating be removed if I'm driving one of the safest vehicles made? I used to drive a Jeep Liberty so this made no sense to me. I called my insurance agent and basically said, "WTF?!". She said she had no control over it, it comes from corporate. Yadda, yadda, yadda, blah, blah, blah. So, for shits and giggles, I got a quote from Geico and it was like $500 less a year. I called my agent back and basically said, "Yo! WTF?!". She said, "Are you sure it was the same coverage?" Yes. Yes, I am. And then? Then I did what I normally don't do and that's procrastinate. I didn't change insurance companies. Why? Guilt. I've been with this agent forever. I was one of her very first clients. Tonight? Tonight I read online how minivans in general are the safest class of vehicles overall and my model ranks at the top of the safety lists. So. I'm pissed. I'm pissed at my insurance company and I'm pissed at myself for being such a schmuck. Tomorrow? Tomorrow I need to make the call. I need to quit bending over and smiling.
