Then discovered that my car has a dead battery. Thank goodness it died in the garage and not while I was out running errands! I called AAA to come and install a new battery but they won't do it for VW Beetles. But they came and checked the battery and pronounced it dead, so dead in fact that they told me it was not safe to drive it the 12 miles to the dealer. So now on Monday I need to have it towed.
Just now opened the mail and discovered that the homeowners insurance( Allstate) that dropped us automatically enrolled us into another insurance company (Royal Palm) without our consent. We had signed on with a different insurance company (Tower Hill) after we got the drop notice. So now I have to make a bunch of calls on Monday to sort that out and make sure we aren't being billed for two policies. These sneaky insurance companies!
Looks like Monday will be a busy day already and it's not even here yet!

here's to a better week ahead for you.
We have allstate- Lord I hope we dont have to go through that-- there should be a law against insurance companies.. dropping -
You want me to call my dad to teach you how to change the battery? It's not that hard. Sometimes all that you need is a can of coke. Sounds ridiculous, but it's true. I've saved many a stranded victim with a soda.
StateFarm is our choice of insurers.
I also had battery issues last month -I think because I don't drive it frequently enough? AAA wanted to gouge me, so we picked one up for my Accord at PepBoys.
