My refund ought to just about cover:
- my car's suspension problems
- my car's front bumper (which the tow truck company should pay for but aren't, so far)
- the leak in my roof
I could've used that money, but it's nice that I won't be going into any more debt.
roy, you need to file a claim with your insurance company about the bumper thing. that is what insurance is for.
I did. But so far, they're saying that I'll have a 500 dollar deductible regardless. I need to check. Maybe if they get the money out of the tow truck company, I get the deductible back?
that cannot be right, roy. i mean, i am no expert, but the deductible should really only apply if you are at fault. in this case, your insurance company should not be paying a dime. the tow truck's insurance should be paying for your bumper. so, it makes no sense for you to have to pay a deductible if your insurance company is not putting any money forth. does that make sense?
That assumes that the tow truck company is admitting they're at fault.
there is really no question. it was their equipment that ripped his bumper off and it was the stupid guys lapse of judgement to let roy drive it onto the truck (dont take that personally, roy). that is the dude's job! you should just give me the phone roy and i will take care of it! (i think that collecting more than $10,000 in debt may have given me a little too much confidence)
I remember, a long time ago, when I would be able to file my taxes the day I got my W-2's and then I would have a nice little refund check to pay off crap and a teenie bit to do something fun with.
This year, I'm married to a man who doesn't pay taxes all year because of how his job works and so I will get no refund. And I have a house and student loan payments that all need to be taken into consideration for deductions and stuff.
Needless to say, some accountant somewhere will be doing our taxes this year, and most likely they will be filed shortly before midnight on the 15th....
I hate that. :-(
