My friends.....I have to say, God works in mysterious ways.
If you remember my last post, I told you about the hit and run that did damage to our car.
Well, on Tuesday of this week a representative from the other guy's insurance company came out to survey the damage on our car. He had his camera and his laptop. He told us we should hear something by Thursday and no later than today.
We got the call on Wednesday. That insurance company deemed our car totaled.
It was a total loss.
We bought our car from a little mom and pop business only a block or so from our home.
This business isn't open on Wednesdays so Thursday we went to this business and let the owner know what had happened, what the insurance company said, showed him the numbers the company had given us, and we had a conversation about the amount of money owed on the car and the fact that we would be needing to purchase another car when our income taxes came in.
Well, to break everything down...
After the insurance company pays the dealership what they deemed to be a fair amount, we were going to owe $800.
The owner of the company told us not to worry about it.
He would eat that amount of money because "he really likes us, he likes our family, and we pay well"
We also talked about the purchase of another car.
Well, because he really likes us and how we treat our kids, he went ahead and let us get another car.
Our payments are $40 more a month which isn't really a huge deal.
So here is the breakdown.
The car that got hit was an 03 Malibu basic car.
We were gonna have to get new brakes when our taxes came in.
The car we have now is an 05 Malibu LS.
Has extra features. Needs no work.
Mileage was about the same.
The car was definitely an upgrade plus we owe nothing on the other car.
God works in mysterious ways.
Everything worked out!
