Oh Munky. I wouldn't call this a Petty Vent. Roaring Rage is more like it.

I hope you get good news from your mechanic. Is this your only vehicle?

It's petty until the new alternator is put in.
Monday I might be livid. The mechanic will let us know. Won't know until they take it out for a test drive and open up that V-8 to the hilt.

It's not our only vehicle Addie. It just happens to be my hot rod.

When a person has more than one of an item, I have noticed that they always have a favorite between them. I have the feeling that this car is your baby. Here's hoping that she passes that test drive with flying colors. Good Luck to you and your baby.

Dealing with insurance is a disaster. They are blood sucking animals. Slept me with $2,500.00 dollars bill. Trying to fight them is impossible.

Is this medical insurance? You can go to the state insurance commission/board/ombudsman.

My mom is on Medicare and has some insurance co. like Blue Shield or United (can't remember) as the supplement. Anyway, she had to get a pacemaker, and the local hospital said it was covered 100%, she's in the network, etc.. After the procedure, she received a bill for $95,000.

So she called the hospital and surgeon's office, and no one put her mind at ease to tell her it was covered. Then a few weeks later they sent a revised bill of $12,500. So she called back and again nothing was said to her to re-assure her. Then finally a few months later, the new bill is like $500.

Petty Vents

I'm thinking Charlie is in his 40's or maybe 50's, so no Medicare. The insurance companies are bloodsuckers.

I have to ask - municipal codes not withstanding - whyever would you report such a minor injury from your own pet? There's no way I'd give them any ammunition to start a file on any pet of mine. He has had his rabies shots, right?

IN the 50+ years that I've had pets I've been scratched several times by cats, bitten once by a cat while trying to pill her, and had a similar scratch form a very elderly poodle-terrier mix who was nearly blind - he simply did not realize I was there. Reported none of them. No issues at the doctor's, either. If I had a doctor who tried to insist on filing a report for such a thing, I'd switch doctors.

Because I am 77 years old and here it is February 4th, and it is still healing. I am diabetic and a simple little injury turns into a major problem for me.

Secondly, because it is the law. My skin was broken. It was broken with the teeth of the animal. Not from his claws. The incident is now on record. The dog belongs to my son. If the wound should turn into something more than it has, I do not want to leave my child with regrets for having this animal. I want him to know that I did whatever was necessary and required of me.

It would never even occur to me to report my own dog to the police. Whatever the law is, it has nothing to do with the fact that you have diabetes.
