Only a year since my last post. Oops
Anyway, just home from Spamalot with Haydn as King Arthur, and oh oh oh the love for him. Just awesome show and he was fab, looks great with a beard which was unexpected.
Was sitting the row in front of Peter E and Dan C who giggled and chatted the whole way through the show and screamed like kids whenever Haydn appeared. Was pretty fab really to see them and say hi and was altogether a lovely evening.
Zorro on Friday with Sharon (hey if you see this!), it's high time I started getting back to theatre. Enough is enough.
I'm posting this here for several reasons
1) I haven't posted in aaages and feel bad
2) I need to get things off my chest and feel here will irritate the least people
3) Writing it all down will stop me forgetting when I write rude letters
Just before going to uni at the end of Sept, my darling angel littlest sister crashed my car. She ran into the back of someone cos she wasn't looking where she was going and smushed the entire front of the car. Thankfully she and the other guy were both ok, but Eeyore was a bit of a mess.
Car was driven up onto a tow truck and supposedly delivered to the insurers authorised repairer, however this process took 2 days over which no-one seemed to know where the car was.
Finally repairer (K&R) got the car and sent in a quote to insurance, insurance said car was a write off, K&R said easy to fix, insurance said never should have been a write of and go fix. aarrggh
K&R gave me a courtesy car. K&R asked for car back and switched it for another one, K&R asked for car back and switched it for an automatic with biiiiig dents all over it, no hubcaps and a chip in the windscreen.
K&R said btw, we have banking issues and can't take debit/credit cards when you pay your excess, and if you want to pay by cheque then it's 5% processing fee, cash only please
This started my alarm bells and I called insurer to whinge who said they'd fix it but meanwhile K&R are still waiting on one vital part the name of which escaped them, or was diff everytime I asked.
Part finally comes in, is fitted and now engine won't start. K&R not qualified to diagnose engine probs, call Peugeot, Peugeot can't work out problem, send to mainchain dealer, dealer can't fix without checks from independent assessor. Assesor says prob caused by human error snapping off the fuel valve, no-where near any of the damage so if not damaged in accident, can't repair. Phoned insurer an shouted. Damage now going to be covered
Frosty evening and chip in courtesy car becomes 12in crack, hire car sent and K&R get their disasterous rustbucket back
Call to say Eeyore is all mended come and get him, so do, leave hire car behind and drive home. Fill up with petrol and indicator doesn't move, still flashing on empty. poo. get stuck in traffic and car goes *judder, jump, judder, jump, CAAAARRRKKK*
Phone mainchain, thay say oops and to bring it back in but they have no courtesy car, not sure how long will take to fix
Take car back, turn on heater cos cold and smoke and burning rubber smell. mmmm, tasty.
That brings me to today, the 20th of November, 60 days after the initial accident. I am not a happy bunny. I don't want my car back, I want it written off, I want a new shiny car that I'm not afraid bits are going to fall off on the motorway or will suddenly go up in smoke. Also, I want compensation. Lots and lots of compensation.
