    After almost a month of waiting, the insurance company for the guy that rear-ended me finally approved the beginning of the repair process yesterday. Apparently, they weren't able to get back in touch with their client, so they gave me the go-ahead to get my truck fixed. Nothing major, just a new rear bumper.

    And, the adjuster said they could approve a rental of an equivalent class of vehicle to my avalanche, so I'll get a full-size SUV or pickup while mine is in the shop. And the best part is that Budget here will rent to an 18 year old for insurance claims, so I should get something in decent condition too. Now I just have to wait for the credit card I just applied for to get here because Budget requires a credit card in the drivers name instead of allowing cash deposits for young drivers.

    insurance companies are acting very weird lately. my father got sandwiched last month. so the front and rear bumpers got trashed and the bed was slightly damaged. along with all of that some little $36 fuel vapor recycle valve got damaged. they approved and repaired $5600 of damage but still to current day refuse to repair the $36 valve. this is 1 of those moments that makes a person stop and scratch there head thinking WTF.

    Ever hear of an Insurance company going broke? Nope cause they are not regulated. Kind of like oil companies who got deregulation in the mid 70's when we paid 25 cents a gallon for unleaded. Guess who pays 25 cents per gallon now. Yup the Opec nations. Wonder how that works
