Woke up at close to my normal going to bed time (5am
) to drop my car off at the Insurance Assessors. I was a little miffed to discover that they weren't going to fix some of the damage because it was supposedly 'pre-existing damage' that I'd never noticed before...
They thought I was trying to pull a shifty when I wasn't. I claimed that if it was pre-existing, it was at the least exacerbated. No dice.
Ah well. It's only something that someone will get damaged again in a carpark anyway. Just like the 99.9% of tiny dings and scratches caused by others in carparks.
So since they provided a free taxi home, I 'tipped' the driver with their money. Generous of me since Aussies DO NOT TIP
(It's definitely not in our culture to do so)
Happy 4th to you US folks
