I want a thread to just argue about a rock and whatever else is on your mind.

I moved to the Atlanta area back in 87. It was a blast here. I loved it. Fast forward to after the 96 Olympics. This place has been an over crowded zoo ever since. I can't wait to move to a small town in bama after I retire. 

Good choice

People that make their problem yours to solve. :mad:

 

I put insurance agents right under a snake's belly slithering across Death Valley. I call the end of July to cancel the insurance on a vehicle I sold that day. Two days ago, I get a message saying the agent was no longer with the company and the new guy is asking if I ever sold the car because I never got back to "them". Meaning they are trying to charge me for two additional months of premiums unless I can prove the car was not in my possession on that day. That is, as of this day they say they can't go back 30 days without proof. Proof I didn't make the call cancelling the policy you're calling me about? :banghead:    How do you know to make this call unless I made the call you're checking on? :idiot:

 

Okay, how about a bill of sale signed by the seller and buyer. Great he says. BTW I continue. Cancel all my motorcycle policies effective today. There are consequences for willfully stupid.

I couldn't agree more.  I hate repeating myself so disregard if I've told the same story before.  Jumping back to 2014, my wife and I bought a new 2014 Charger R/T.  Loved it, great car, bright red, it looked amazing.  Great car.  Insurance was very reasonable too.  Well in 2015 Dodge came out with the Hellcat and the 6.4L hemi engine that I couldn't stop watching videos about.  So in 2016 we found a SRT Charger with the 6.4L hemi in it.  We went and drove it, holy crap that engine and 8 speed ZF transmission was a match made in heaven.  So my wife got the VIN#, called our insurance (State Farm) at the time, they quoted us an extra grand a year over our 2014 R/T.  We were like hell yeah, went back the next day to the dealership, traded in our 2014 and took delivery of one of the most beautiful cars I think we've ever owned.  It was Jazz Blue, one of only 6 of that color as equipped like ours in the entire US.  We were stoked.  Called the insurance company to tell them we bought it and then they told us it was 400 a month more than our R/T we traded in.  We argued like hell to them that they told us it was a grand a year, not 400 a month.  Guess who won that argument.  Yup they had no record of us calling getting a quote.  So we enjoyed it for 2 and a half years then got rid of it.  Other insurance companies were only a tad cheaper, they told us it's because its a SRT....they totally screwed us.  Ruined the whole ownership of that car.  We would still have it today if it wasn't for being screwed over by State Farm.  What an amazing car!!  I hate insurance companies.  A legal pyramid scheme just like any insurance.

There was a period when we had our Impala ss a Z 28 and a intagra type r at the same time. To make our auto insurance cheaper our agent listed the impala the wife’s daily driver. When my son got his license he listed the Impala as his car. The one with the highest top speed. The Intagra was a no go. We had to sign a document that he wouldn’t drive it. The slowest of the three.

Insurance is one of those things. If you aren’t changing companies every couple years you’re probably getting screwed. We had American Family for nearly 20 years. Never made a claim, no tickets, nothing. Back in June they showed appreciation for my loyalty. Sent me a $1200+ bill for 6 months coverage on two vehicles. A $200 increase over the last period (which I already thought was too much). Anyway, that pushed me over the edge and went to GEICO. $572 for the same coverage levels. Thankfully the TRX isn’t penalized as a sports car. 
 

Now if I could just address the $200 cable & internet bill. Another one of “those things”…

We got rid of cable a couple of years ago and have never looked back, now we pay 80 a month for internet and have 2 ROKU TV's.  Best decision ever.  Now if we could do something about our 326 a month AT&T bill....that one pisses me off.

Been with State Farm for a lot of years. Have their highest customer rating. When I need them they treat me A+.

Brother in law switches often and rates start lower but rise.

 

This insurance game is a necessary evil.

We have a local fiber optic and Direct TV stream for around 150 per month. Plus Netflix and Amazon prime. Had direct tv dish for 22 years until they got quite pricey. Direct TV stream has its own box as an option that’s as easy as cable to use. I get everything I want to watch. Before that a 10 ft dish from the 80s until we move to our current location 23 years ago. My wife recently switched to pure talk for phone very reasonable. My insurance is a bundle including everything very reasonable. Two vehicles liability one full coverage one collector car insurance.

Yeah, I set my mom up with DTV stream. Got in when it first came out under the AT&T brand. It was like 40-50 bucks a month. It's went up since but still reasonable. I prefer cable because it doesn't freeze up or buffer like the streams do. But the cost just sucks.

 

Pluto and Roku both have a ton of programming we watch for free. Pluto especially. Old Top Gear, Baywatch, Walker Texas Ranger, etc.

I was worried about the buffing and freezing. Especially since DTS requires good Wi-Fi. Our local utility company does electricity, water and recently fiber optics. It’s flawless. The nice thing about DTS no contract. So if it didn’t work, no problem. I did cable through one contract after regular direct tv got stupid expensive. Cable sucks in our area.

You want to see something funny.  This is the plaque I was presented last week.  It was for 35 years at Delta but I passed 36 years at Delta last month.  So a year later and they still got it wrong...lol...It says happy retirement...lol...I'm still there all....I think they are just wishing I was gone is all.....so funny...
