So a few weeks ago I got into a minor car accident in a parking garage near work, I had the choice of hitting a GIANT black extended Escalade or swerving to avoid it, I swerved out of instinct and scrapped the side of my car along the bumper of another SUV that was parked in a compact car spot. The Escalade was driven by a bad person who hopefully karma will catch up to who wouldn't give any information and said I should "Drive Better". Bitch.
So I wanted to do the right thing, I left my information for the SUV I hit, they never called me but I also called my insurance company to report what happened, and I told the truth. I have GEICO and they have been ummmm...not that great. At first they were helpful but then yesterday I brought lil' jetta to a body shop for an estimate and found out that GEICO's helpfulness is actually a mask for trying to screw the customer. They estimated way below what the damage actually was and to get them to pay more, the body shop (I only want to go to a Body Shop if it sells lotions and good smelling stuff) is going to have to fight with them for weeks. With an s...weeks.
As the girl was telling me all this I looked at Mike and said: "I hate car S***!, this is why I have a husband so I don't have to deal with it!" I have no rental car coverage on my policy so I may be car-less for at least 2 weeks. Yip yip. What makes it worse is when the body shop called GEICO to ask about the rental car the rep wanted to talk to me, I was told that the accident was my fault because I "lost control of the vehicle". No, I had total control, I just didn't want to drive my car head on into the back of an SUV causing more damage and possibly injuring myself or other people. So I swerved to avoid a bad accident and got into a little one. I explained this to GEICO butthead on the phone and she insisted it was my fault, so according to them I should have driven straight into a car much larger then my own and injured myself or others and totalled the car, that would have been better. I no longer like GEICO and once I get my car fixed I am going on Mike's insurance...stupid lizard with the British accent.
