I had to make this a separate post from the previous one because it’s a teeny, tiny bit of a rant…
So, The Boss dropped our camera in the sea. “You moron!” I kindly labelled him. He called the insurance company. They obviously agreed with me, because they said that they would give us £71.99 after our £100 excess had been paid.
Right… so let me paraphrase: we phone up to make a claim, they say “Oh dear. Please give us £28.01. And your insurance will cost about £25 more next year. Thank you, goodbye.”
Am I losing the plot, or something? Do they think we’re stupid? I’m Glaswegian, for goodness’ sake, by age 4 I knew when the ice-cream man was short-changing me. At what point do you think the insurance company could have said, “It’s not worth making a claim, you’ll lose money. Bad luck. Use a wrist strap next time”?
Thieving trickster sods.
Don’t mind me, I just hate insurers.
