When security asks...

When security asks you to move your car, you do it.
When the "tent guys" ask you to move your car, you do it.

Good news this morning!

I woke up this morning to find a nice email waiting for me:

I don't have to pay the deductible.

That's the good news. The bad news is that I still have to contact Safeco directly (the other guy's insurance company) to be reimbursed for the car rental. I'm sure that'll take a while.

I wish I had known about the deductible when I went to sleep last night; I must be grinding my teeth or clenching my jaw intensely while I sleep. The headaches... the crunchy jaw...

I still need to talk to dad. I still need to figure out how I can afford this move. Is it bad form to call the new employer to ask for moving costs up-front rather than being reimbursed?

I'm sorry. I hate doing this.


I created a spreadsheet 2 days ago to help visualize the move I was about to make. That is when I realized that I don't have the money I need to get to Juneau.

It doesn't matter if they reimburse me for all of my expenses.

The $500 deductible for the repairs is partly to blame. The $500+ for the rental car is partially to blame. The fact that I wasn't offered a single shift this week from Got Light is partially to blame.

I'll be reimbursed for the rental car, but it won't be in time to help fund the trip.

This reality is far more disappointing than any thought of leaving the Bay Area for a year.

Have I been conditioned to express myself in tweet form? Have I trained myself to be more eloquent using broken English and acronyms in one-hundred and forty characters?
