Dear Internet,

My car was just smashed by a rental truck. Welcome to insurance hell.

Three insurances are involves:
-My Insurance
-The Driver's insurance
-The Rental Company's Insurance

My front driver's side fender, headlight, tire, side view mirror, and a portion of the bumper are crushed. I took a quick look under the hood; so far, it looks pretty shaken up but nothing looks out of order.

Work tomorrow. I was supposed to drive out to Davis tonight, but now my car is fucked.

This is a pain.

I'm physically fine. My car was smashed while parked in front of my house. No one was in it.

Not one of those three insurance companies has stepped up with a rental car for you? Time to get tough with them. Don't be afraid to yell.

I know you said the Rental truck company insurance was involved but did the guy that hit you pay for the rental insurance?

Any chance of you sharing any portion of the blame at all? Knowing insurance companies rather well, they look for any means of an out possible. But you already knew that. It is what insurance companies do, look for the light and burrow in until they cannot be seen by the light of the law any more!

At least you have the Capitol Corridor (Amtrak) to Davis, if you are still thinking of going!

Ah, titty fucking Christ. Normal life shouldn't involve bureaucracy.

Ugh. Well, at least the person has insurance. Last time I got hit, the guy was uninsured, and naturally he stiffed me.
