Thanks for the good ideas. Simple and to the point is always a good idea and is very much my style.

I had been wandering around in circles, without a leg to stand on, so this gives me a leg up on the situation. Thanks.

Meanwhile, we had pre-addressed the envelope, thinking we would be dropping the card in the mail any moment, and she's moved to a different place in town. Got to find another envelope, or at least a blank label to stick over the thing.

Include a job application for I-Hop.

What? I waited an appropriate amount of time, didn't I?

I should get my car back this afternoon. Yay.

I was talking to a cow orker and his premiums are WAY below mine and he only has 100 deductible. How can that be? Why are my premiums so high? I get a good driver discount and some renewal discount. I looked to lowering my deductible and the premium shot way up. Not sure what to do, what to cut or lessen.

Is 600/half a year a lot?

Does this cow orker have multiple policies with the same insurance co?

We have life/auto/home/and umbrella with the same company. The umbrella was basically free because we had the others, and the others are all cheaper because it's all bundled. I don't know what the totals are. $600 sounds a little high, but not outrageous.

He might. I'll ask him.

I didn't think it was that high either but he was all like "REALLY?" so I wondered, me being a total doofus about such things.

IM, I think we're also paying about 600 every 6 months.

That covers 5 cars, with two drivers, the newest being a 2012 Audi and the oldest a 1990 Toyota MR2.

WHAT?

I'm one car, one driver, 2006 VW Beetle.

What am I doing wrong?

Maybe I do need an agent.

I'd guess it's your accident history, myself. The sad truth is it doesn't matter that they weren't your fault at all, your totaled new car was a claim on your insurance and not the other guy's, wasn't it?
