That was my reaction yesterday when I talked to Jason, the Progressive Claims Adjuster. Chip Baker of Baker's RV sent Jason an estimate of repair costs to Mel on Monday. Jason reviewed the estimate and called me yesterday to let me know he had reviewed what Chip had said in his $1200.00 repair estimate and had decided that Chip was too frugal and that he was adding $400.00 to the estimate to make sure everything was done correctly. Needless to say I was speechless, who ever heard of an insurance company upping an estimate by a third? I guess I will now be included in the Loyal Progressive Customers Database. I checked on-line and the check has already been cut and is on the way. It sure strengthens your faith in humanity when a couple of people do the right thing, First Chip in trying to keep the repair costs down and then Progressive making sure there are adequate funds to complete the repairs right.
Yesterday I made another Amazon purchase. I bought a new Tracfone LG LG800G with 1200 Minutes and Triple Minutes for Life!! (Tracfone). I prefer Trakfone to a contract phone because I just don't make that many calls. 1200 minutes will probably last me a year. One of the reasons I replaced my old phone was the 5 on the dial had quit working, so anyone with a 5 in their phone number wasn't going to hear from me. Having retired from the 573 area code that eliminated a lot of friends and acquaintances. I also tried to use 3 + 2, but that wouldn't work either. Rather than loose all those friend I just went on and sprang for a new phone.
A word about the Cedar Cove management that has been more that nice in extending my stay here. Rather than charging a weekly or daily rate for my additional days waiting for repairs, they are just stepping up and prorating the monthly rate. Just another example of the fine management in this park.
Today we have scheduled nothing, but I did get busy this morning and replace the spot mirror that got damaged in the hail storm. This afternoon I will have to check to see if the glue is holding, but even with all that activity I'll still have time to enjoy the good life.
