After 11 years of continuous paying automobile premiums without Geico ever having to pay out a dime, it happened this morning. I was on my way to visit a prospect to perform a Process Review with one of the sharpest technical consultants in Southern California. Our meeting was @ 9:00 a.m. and traffic on the 15 South was stop and go, single digit speed. Moira was coming in from Long Beach and called to tell me that traffic on the 5 South was in the same condition and she was going to be late.
I was behind a small foreign car, listening to Sports Radio and the next thing I know I’m banging into her rear end bumper. We pulled right over and I was concerned for her and her “occupants” which were two small heads in the back seat. The “occupants” turned out to be just a lot of stuff.
I asked if she was okay, she said yes & then asked the following, “Where’s the guy who shoved you in to me”? I looked around and realized that the pinhead who’d hit me had just kept going!! He probably left the scene because:
a. He had no insurance
b. His registration wasn’t current
c. He in all likelihood didn’t have a current license.
d. He probably had a warrant for his arrest for DWS (Driving While Stupid). To memorialize the words of comedian Ron White, “You Can’t Fix Stupid.”
The other driver and I exchanged information, and we off to our separate destinations. My SUV only had a bent front license plate, but her car is going to need some major surgery. I still had time to stop by Einstein Brothers for bagels for the front office crew and the Business Review went very well.
I have to put a plug in for Geico because of the service I received yesterday while I was busy doing the Process Review. During the day I received calls from Geico, who set up a doctor’s appointment for me, set up an appointment with a body shop in the event I need any work on my vehicle and reserved a rental car. They setup an appointment with an adjuster and I didn’t have to do a thing. So, thank you Geico, now dump the naked gecko.
What kind of person causes an accident and just keeps going? I’m not sure but I can tell you this; kharma is a force not to screw with. One day he’ll get his recompense and he won’t even know why or what just smacked him upside his head. I could only hope to be there to see him get his just return.
