The adjuster came today. You know, I don't know how regular people do it. frank and I have been fortunate in this lifetime We have saved a fair amount of money toward retirement, and we have all that stash of cash, LOL.
So far we have paid for truck, $15K for demolition, $12K for the clean up and mold remediation. The mold starts in 5 hours and is in full blown force at 36 hours. And $6K for the big dehumidifiers and blowers for the drying out.
State Farm says it could take 6 to 10 weeks to get the settlement check cut. How can people
do that? I also pretty much know that this will end up costing us money. How are people doing that as well? I feel for so many families who live pay check to pay check but are making it. This may pull them under the water, so to speak.
So here was today's "Priceless Moment".
Adjuster came, Carrie came as well.
He is doing his thing, asking me questions abort the house and the materials. Carrie is adding or asking a few light questions as he goes.
He gets into the kitchen and is measuring the cabinet area. Carrie had a problem with the way he had measured one area and said that his tape measure was a bit off.
He responds with, I have done this before, I know how to measure.
Carrie responds with, I know how to measure as well.
He looks at her sideways, and says, Oh, you are an adjuster?
No, she says, I am a partnered architect at an architectural firm.
You go, my Girl!
