I'm sad to say that, after years of recommending +GEICO Insurance (being customers for 15+ years) and having had good experiences many years ago, I can no longer recommend this car insurance.

In an incident where my parents were driving in a parking lot, the had stopped to wait for traffic to clear (as they saw a car coming around the corner). That car cut the corner too tight and hit them. While it caused nearly no damage to my parent's vehicle, it did severe damage to the other car. Thankfully, the lady driving was alright. After conversations with our Geico representative, my parents were assured that they were not at fault (after all, they were stationary).

Fast forward several months and the rates took a large jump. When we inquired about it, we were told that it was because that case had been transferred to a new claims agent and we had been held at fault...with no communication or attempt to reach out to us on this. Even after explaining what happened from our side, not enough effort was put to make things right or to restore things to the way they were (we were offered a "over time" reduction that still ended up with us paying significantly more than previously).

What this tells me is that I can't trust my own insurance company to consider our side of the story (especially considering that there are nearly 0 accidents on record outside of this one in those 16 years and no accidents with us at fault). Instead, I can only trust that they will take one side and expend no effort toward their own customers. They are merely looking to gouge us to cover their own mistake. If I can't trust them to try and work with the customer who paid them, then there's little reason to have this insurance and I will be shopping elsewhere.

On overly strong criticisms in politics...
It's extremely popular to go to the extreme when it comes to political stances...but this morning's devotion through the end of Exodus 22 is a good reminder to avoid that. "You shall not revile God, nor curse a ruler of your people ." - Exodus 22:28 (emphas...

Our dissatisfaction in our leaders
This morning, I woke up thinking about leadership as a concept.  My theory is that we, as a culture, abuse our leaders. I don't think it's necessarily something done intentionally, but I think we may place unreasonable expectations on them and then further ...

Why I believe homosexuality is not ok, but gay marriage is.
I'm going to say something here that will probably get me in all sorts of trouble with all sorts of people (assuming they find my little blog), but I feel like it's something I need to clarify before I get lumped in with this camp or that. I believe homosex...

I was asked recently about what I saw for myself in the future...and it got me thinking about what I would want to do. The truth is, I've found I have a passion for things I am currently doing.  It seems simple and I suppose one could make the accusation th...
