Day sixteen (again)

January 24, 2017

After a couple of weeks of playing phone tag with the claims adjustor from ICBC we finally connected yesterday. This was a conversation I’d been dreading. The first bloke I’d spoken to after the accident, the one who informed me the Echo was a write off, gave me, as a ballpark figure, an estimate of between $1400 and $2200 as the car’s value. God.

Yesterday, lovely Lori from ICBC started off suggesting something in the region of $2400, which was better than I’d expected. We then had a chat about what good condition the car was in and the fact that I was going to have to buy snow tires as my replacement car did not have any. Yada yada. Then I went to the gym (where the punch bag was annoyingly unavailable for kicking). Then I came home to find a message from lovely Lori on the machine saying she’d emailed her valuation to me: $2973. Woo, hoo!

This is not a fortune. Once I’ve bought and put new snow tires on, I’ll pretty much be back to $2400, but in fairness (because I’ve checked) that is the cost of buying a second hand 2000 Echo, so ICBC have not been the complete wankers everyone told me they were when it came to cars being written off.

That, as you can imagine, did cheer me up rather a lot.

So much so that this morning I was able to engage in a rant about President Dickhead.

Rehearsals are going well. Thanks to lovely Linda at ICBC, I will soon be less in debt than I am today. Life could be a lot worse.
