The world is revolving around Hick again. He didn't get home from the SUS2 (Storage Unit Store 2) until after 4:00 on Sunday. That's two hours late! Without a call, too. And here I was, waiting for him, to fill out his state business tax form and send in his sales tax. I'd even gone to town an hour early to get back with daylight left to sit at the kitchen table.
I guess Hick lost track of time, since he excitedly spouted that two of his buddies had rented storage units next to him! Now he will have part of his crew back together, and more sellers to attract buyers to his area. Apparently the old lady who had been parking in front of Hick's unit is not a good draw.
Also, Hick wants me to buy him a legal pad, since he used up his old one itemizing his cash payments for labor and materials for Pony House. Now he's on the Double Hovel list. AND he'd like two ledgers to record his business transactions for the SUS2.
Hick and Old Buddy will be buying drywall on Monday, to start on the bathroom at the Double Hovel. For the one of you who recoiled in horror at the sight of the toilet there, Hick WILL be buying a new toilet. Perhaps not on Monday. He's going to work on framing. Then he'll have to do some plumbing, but at least he can get under the Double Hovel house, unlike Pony House, where the crawlspace was limited.
Tuesday, Hick will be going by our insurance office to complain about our homeowner's insurance increasing by $1,100 since last year. Not even a claim! He looked up replacement value on our mansion, and our coverage is based on TWICE the cost per square foot that Hick says it would take to build. So he will either pay one month and look for a new insurance company, or change the policy to $1,100 less coverage. Such a shame. We've been with this company for 30 years, and always pay the amount in full. But common sense tops loyalty for Thevictorians.
Insurance costs are up everywhere. Here, many homes have been flooded along the Murray River and places that aren't within the flood area have had their insurance payments raised as much as those who were flooded and it seems there is nothing they can do but pay up. Everywhere for everything, costs have risen.ReplyDelete
Hooray for a new toilet!!
I knew you would be thrilled about the toilet news!Delete
The percentage change of the increase is what bugs Hick. He doesn't think it's justified by the coverage we have.
My granddaughter the wise guy's mama works in insurance and warned her mom about the $1,000 increase. My daughter called her at work and Ashley said she was working w ith 12 clients looking to go elsewhere, but this increase is everywhere.ReplyDelete
I'd like to stay with the same company, so Hick might adjust our coverage to a lower amount. If there's one thing Hick knows, it's construction costs. He was researching on his phone, and has a good idea what it would cost to rebuild our mansion. So he might make changes to the policy concerning replacement cost, and stick with them.Delete
We still use our insurance broker in Missouri. He always did research on the campground insrance and came up with the cheapest. He had our home and vehicles, too and still does. Our loyalty to him will dissolve in an instant if ours increase like yours!ReplyDelete
Hick voiced his opinion, and cut back our replacement cost coverage to what HE thinks it will cost to rebuild. So now we're just shy of last year's premium. I presume everyone is happy, since at least they didn't lose a client.Delete
