Then something splashed all-over my hood, eating through the paint. To repaint my hood was just slightly more than my deductible ($500), so I just paid for it without filing a claim.
Last fall, I was hit in the front quarter panel, and the other driver fled the scene. While I was declared not at fault, I still had to pay the $500 deductible.
And finally, last week, my garage door malfunctioned as I backed out, scraping the roof of my car and ripping off my antenna. As it was clearly my fault, I had to pay the $500 deductible again. The Juke is in the shop as we speak.
I can't guarantee that we'll get the scores in just two shows (I need two scores from two different judges), but being "poor" is a huge motivator!
I am glad today is payday.
