Flim flammed

Dear State Farm,

While it is admirable that you proactively adjust my insurance rates, I can't help but wonder if you should instead use the money to include a small packet of lube with my next statement.

I may not be Einstein, but giving me a savings of .25 and then charging me 1.00 service fee for making the policy change does not quite add up. Sure, next month I might save that 25 cents again, but I am onto you. I'm sure in May you will save me some additional negligible amount and charge me yet another $1 for that adjustment. I really don't have the time or energy to call you to fix your fucked up shit. Stop it already.

Sincerely,
Violated in Ohio

  2. I'm feel compelled to copy and paste this with some minor changes and send it off to my telephone and IS provider, who jacks me around monthly with a different statement amount.

  3. Well done. Since I am not the mathematical Poindexter type..my youngest son is in grade 2 so this is the last year that I can help him with his math homework...I get impacted (literally) from all of the Institutional mumbo-jumbo that arrives in letter form.

    Thank goodness that there are still people like you out there stickin' it to the MAN!

  5. That's hilarious, and a little brilliant on the part of the company. I bet almost no one calls to complain...and they keep raking in those service charges...

  6. That's a great rant! And hilarious!

    I'm glad my insurance company ain't like that!

  7. OK so like I KNOW I visited last week and posted a comment here and the previous post. So, did blogspot spit me out, or did I somehow piss you off?

  8. OK, like I KNOW I visited last week and I KNOW I left a comment on this post and the previous one. Did they get swallowed, or did I piss you off? I don't think I said anything that you would reject.

  9. JL - Sorry, I've been neglectful. I promise to do better and I hope you've got two weeks of pics out there for me to catch up on!
