That sounds awful BC. I'm glad you're okay, if shaken. I think you should inform the police and describe the truck to them.

Wow BC, that could have gotten ugly. Glad you kept your wits about you and you avoided an accident or worse. After all, you just got your car back a little while ago!

And the health insurance saga continues...

Got a letter from the Health Disconnector office today. Apparently showing up at the office with my birth certificate, social security card, and driver's license back in December wasn't quite enough to establish my eligibility. Now they need a proof of residency such as a bill with my name and address on it. *sigh* If you guys hear of a crazy lady in MA trying to get into the governor's office to witch-slap him, that would be ME!

Oh, CG! I am sorry you are having so many problems with this! Sending hugs and peaceful thoughts.

The worst problem ever had is when I went from disability to TB's work plan. Our Pharmacare wanted me off ASAP, and his work was trying to keep me on disability. Finally got it sorted out, then TB got laid off from his teaching position due to a drop in enrollment. Then I had to get back on disability which was surprising a lot easier!

(((Hugs CG))). I sure hope that solves the problem and they don't find something else they "need".

Thanks guys. This WILL get resolved. Thinking of sending the copies of everything imaginable via registered mail/return receipt requested. Except that the mail clerk would return the receipt and the envelope won't reach the right person anyway. Might include a "please return this when you receive this" postcard inside the envelope... Plus a trip into Worcester to drop off all those things in person to the secondary office might be in the works...especially since we can then take another trip to O'Connor's. Or not.

O'Connor's Restaurant, our favorite Irish pub. Good food, good beer, and they make you feel like you're the only people there for the staff to wait on. Perhaps you'll remember them by my (repeated) bragging about their "Irish Potato Pizza". Yum!

Bring even the junk mail that has your name on it. They can't refuse it and have to copy and put in your file.
