Maybe a LoJack while you're at it-- you know, the model with the extra-strong transmitter that penetrates the container on the ship headed for South America?

Re: Aiyeeee!

Eh, she's no Mrs CFB but she's ok.

I dropped the deductible to $500, at least for the first year. Turned out the total six months premium was $480 with the high deductible, $540 for $1000 and $608 for $500.

By the way, the "backup camera" thats positioned above the rear license plate and automatically kicks in, showing whats behind the car on the gps screen, is very, very cool. Would have been handy last week when Mrs CFB backed the RAV out of the garage right into my dads car that was parked in the driveway...

Since Cute Fuzzy Bunny backed into and knocked over the trash cans a few months ago, he's not allowed to give Mrs CFB very much **** about it though.

My dad however, has clean fodder for use for some time now.

Re: Aiyeeee!

By the way, I have determined that Mrs CFB's program of only telling her the days when the portfolio is UP is a principal cause of this whole situation.

So as of a few days ago I instituted a new policy. When she says "hey, we can afford it!", I reply "Sure we can, we're just spending Gabes inheritance.".

BOOM!

Re: Aiyeeee!

Nope. She "got it" right away and quickly asked "well, we'll still leave him a lot, right?"

"Eh, somewhere between nothing and some bills...but look at the bright side, theres a slim chance he's gonna turn out to be an a-hole..."

THEN I had to dodge the skillet. And....I think i'm gonna sleep in the spare bedroom the next couple of nights and lock the door.

Re: Aiyeeee!

Besides, nothing rusts here in central california.

I see nothing 'inflated' about my rack, either.

To be fair, I went back and modified my sarcastic post with my (this is sarcasm) tag. Just to be sure the ever so cute and fuzzy bunny doesn't start a Flame War with me. Oh, CFB, can you change your name to something else please?

I wouldn't want to go toe to toe with bunny in a flame war either. He can spar with the best of them

This is what I heard from someone who worked at a dealership... that only 10% of the 'retail' cost is put into a fund for future payout... the rest is profit between the dealership and the manufacturer... again, it is hearsay and could be wrong..

Re: Aiyeeee!

Cute fuzzy bunny doesnt like to have flame wars with anyone.

He asks lots of clarifying questions when someone says something odd or seemingly unsupported/unsupportable, and the third or fourth time he gets called a name or the other person bursts into flames through spontaneous combustion...well...he's been known to break out the gasoline and marshmallows.

Cute fuzzy bunny has an F-key programmed to say "Cute fuzzy bunny" and another that uses the more formal "Cute Fuzzy Bunny", so doesnt have these problems with typing out the whole name
