We prepare for what we like to call a time when the s**t hits the fan. Most think of that as being national or world wide disasters. However, it can also be on a personal level.
So yesterday I was walking through my apartment when something popped in my right knee. After some well chosen words I discovered that walking had become somewhat interesting. One of the first things I did was whine to a friend and the second was to proceed with feeling sorry for myself.
After icing my knee, which seems to be getting better, the pity party continued. Right up to the time a short while ago when my phone rang.
It seems the extended warranty on my car has expired. And since the call had interrupted my sitting with my leg propped up, I was in just the right mood to discuss this with someone named Jason who had an East Indian accent.
Thing is, I haven't owned a vehicle for several years. So I asked Jason which one of my vehicles needed the warranty. Jason is cagey. He said it was the last vehicle I had purchased. So I informed Jason that I had bought three cars on the same day and he needed to tell me which one needed the warranty.
That is when Jason hung up on me.
It is amazing how good a person can feel when they get a scammer to hang up on them. :)
