Not so good body shop…

So I was in an accident a while back, and my car was totalled. Despite the fact that it was totalled, since my insurance company had to pay for the damages (due to a fuck-head in a Dodge Ram fleeing the scene of the accident) they decided to fix it rather than just pay out what the car is worth. For over a month, I dealt with my insurance company, a lawyer (I’m suing the fuck-head) and the body shop before they claimed it was ready for pick up.

Surprise! it wasn’t ready.

The car was in miserable shape when I initially reviewed it. After refusing to take delivery, the shop gave me a dealer loaner and said they would contact my insurance company to further review the case. Well, turns out, when the shop manager looked over the car, he decided to make the next round of repairs free of cost without contacting the insurance company at all. I guess he didn’t want State Farm to see the state of the car after it had been allegedly repaired.

After another two weeks of rolling in the dealer loaner, a Hyundai SantaFe, they called me back yesterday to let me know it was ready for pick up again. This time I did take delivery of the car, but noticed once I got it home that there are additional things that still need to be fixed. The passenger door needs to be re-aligned and the trunk hinges are rubbing when you open and close it. I let the receptionist that I would bring it back twice a week until it was right if I had to. Guess it’s time to show her that I wasn’t bluffing.

People piss me off…

So I’m driving to a physical therapy appointment the other day (or maybe it was to get my hair done, I can’t remember) and I have to take the loop to get where I’m going. It is no secret that traffic on the loop between 4:30PM and 7:00PM is rough, everybody trying to get home after work, run errands etc, but traffic literally came to a stand still which is less common. I assume it is an accident, which is never a happy thing. People drive like retards in San Antonio (not as bad as Austin, or so I thought, but still bad). Turns out it was an accident, but it was an accident IN ON COMING TRAFFIC! So where I had thought traffic in SA was not as bad a Austin, I was wrong. Apparently people are so intrigued by other’s misfortune, they will slow four lanes traffic to a stop in the opposite direction so they can gawk. People disgust me.
