Finally an end to this Acura nightmare...  
I called my insurance company first thing this morning, fully expecting them to be rude and nasty to me because I didn't know how to go about reporting a claim. To my surprise they were friendly and helpful and were really great with customer service.

They admitted that they thought the estimate the Acura girl gave me was a bit high and told me that they'd contact her to go to one of their approved autobody shops. They said IF the damage costs less than $1000, they wouldn't raise my premiums since it was my first accident. If it does cost more than a $1,000 (and remember the Acura girl quoted me $1,053.00) then it'll be counted against me the next time my policy comes up for renewal. :P What I'm really glad about is that they're handling it from here on out - I don't have to worry about it anymore. For that, I'm very thankful. :) I'm just so glad this is all over!

And a short Kevin note - read this on a theatre board about his interview tonight at Planet Hollywood:

"Next up was Kevin Earley, now in Millie, who told of some Les Miz turntable mishaps on the road, and then did a wonderful rendition of what I call the dictation number (the floor wax complaint letter) from Millie. Lovely, easy-going nature."

*SIGH* I wish I was there! :( I know this is just the beginning of things that he'll do that I won't be able to attend and I should get used to it, but it's just hard for me. Glad he's getting more exposure, though! :) I want him to become hugely successful in NYC. I just wish I could enjoy these moments in person at times like this, though. :(

And lastly, one of my co-workers got an attractive offer to work for our competition across the street. He's considering taking it (which would be good for him, but sad for us). :( I'll totally miss his humor around the office if he leaves. :( I think we'll all find out whether he's leaving tomorrow.

And it's my first TV free day since I started watching AI. I realize that the reason I can't get in to watching these kind of shows is that I never get anything done with the TV on - I'd better just stick to "Line of Fire" on Tuesday nights or I'd never update my sites anymore. :P
Current Mood: relievedrelieved
Current Music: "Speed Test" stuck in my head because of that post!

Oh that is great that the insurance company had great customer service! Yay!!! Glad they are handling it now and that Acura Girl will have to take her car to one of their approved shops for another estimate. Perhaps she is trying to get other repairs to the bumper done as well?!

The insurance company was really wonderful! I had heard good things about them, and now I'd recommend them to anyone - they made everything so easy for me. :) And I had wondered that too about the Acura girl - those prices she quoted me were pretty high for scratches. :P

I am so glad you are having a positive experience with the insurance company. =) It will be interesting to see what the estimate is this time.

Thanks, Barb! I'm just glad to be over with this whole ordeal - it was giving me a little stress! And thanks for the birthday wishes! :)

Hopefully the re-estimate will be below $1,000 since it's so close to being there anyway and your rates won't change.

Why is it when we get into accidents, we always seem to hit expensive cars? LOL. It doesn't seem like anyone ever gets into an accident with an old Pinto or something.

Tom had a friend who once ran right into a Porsche!

LMBO about hitting expensive cars! :D My ex hit a Jaguar once and had to pay through the nose for it. :P Just once I'd like to hear of an accident with an old pinto like you said. Haha! :D
