Hello, I'm Staci and I'm a bibliophile and a nerdfighter. I love books and I breathe stories. I'm working on one day being a world-famous book critic, but in the meanwhile, I'd be happy just working in editing/publishing.

I think that everyone has an important story to share.

DFTBA!

The Ongoing Saga of My Poor Car

So, as many of you know, my car was towed earlier this month, & after going to Ford, the damage is going to cost me about $140 out of pocket. (The front valance has to be replaced and special ordered since it’s a part for a brand new car.)

I’m at Ford getting the part replaced. Now that I have the final quote for the cost of repair, I called the tow company to see how to go about getting reimbursed for it. the first time I called, he told me to read the fine print at the bottom of the receipt and hung up on me.

The bottom of the receipt reads: “Not responsible for loss or damage to vehicle in case of fire, theft or any other damage beyond our control.”

My first though: Well, this sucks. My second thought: Hang on! Ripping the front plastic guard of my car from a front tow is not “beyond their control.” It’s carelessness!

So I called the tow company back & explained that, to which the tow company man got super rude and told me that it was my problem, I probably ran over a parking beam in the two weeks since it’s been towed, they weren’t paying, and if I called him back again he’d sue me for harassment.

Plan B: Done with the tow company. Currently contacting legal advice. Looks like if I want to see any money, I’m going to have to settle this in small claims court.
