Quips and Comments from Recent Surveys
Home Insurance Pitfalls
"Our garage melted (or at least the siding did) when somebody lit our large plastic trash receptacle on fire. The fire department came and put it out while we slept without even knocking to tell us our garage had melted."
"A dog chewed off a sump pump connection, resulting in water shooting out like a geyser all over the basement whenever the pump was activated. This went unnoticed by the homeowner just long enough for mildew and mold to start developing."
Toyota & Auto Recalls
"I love my Honda Accord. I've got a V6 so I can get out of tight spots on the highway, no blind spots, and when I was in an accident I walked away unharmed."
No-Fault Auto Insurance
"Minnesota's insurance requirements SUCK. They are seriously inadequate."
Driving & Cell Phones
"I have seen my share of people on their cell phones that should focus on their driving. The most interesting sight I have seen - during a bad snowstorm on I35, heading north to Duluth, a man in a Hummer flew past me going too fast for conditions. He of course was on his cell phone as I glanced at him whizzing by. Within a second he was in the ditch; he continued to off-road in the median and then got back on the Interstate. Not sure if the snowstorm caused him to go off the road, or his inability to multitask while talking on the phone. I'm just thankful he didn't kill anyone in the process."
