And that is exactly how I like it!
On Friday I told Frank that by sundown Sunday, he needed to own a BBQ grill. After picking up a big donation check for CAAWS I picked Frank up and headed to Sears. Oddly, he loves to buy his BBQ grills from Sears.
By sundown, we had assembled all but one shelf on the grill. Needless to say it was not in time to cook the chicken breast I purchased on the way home! So we had chicken in an earlier form......eggs.
My Neighbor "A" told me that the crazy lady received some money from FEMA even though she had never had flood insurance. They had paid her for being in a hotel since the flood because she couldn't live in the house. FEMA is bringing her a trailer and hooking it up to the sewer system. They are giving her money to pay for the demolition, cleaning and rebuilding of her house.
Now how does that seem fair. A and I both have paid for flood insurance for years and years. He has received $1500 and I have received $1700 from FEMA. That is it.
We considered that she could be lying, but maybe not. Regardless, I would rather be me than her.
And I would always choose having insurance over government giveaways. But it just doesn't seem fair. People should just do the right thing.
