(ABC 27)   You cancel fire insurance for the antique business housed in your candle-lit wooden barn. What could possibly go wrong?   (abc27.com) divider line 68

As much as I'd like to make a snarky comment, I feel for her.

I have also done things to try to save money and been bitten in the ass for it. The worst part is you have no one to blame but yourself.

Ugh. What an icky feeling.
 
2012-04-30 05:58:08 PM  
At least she saved $400-500 or so

Just big enough apparently.

Of all the ways to cut back, fire insurance for my highly flammable structure filled with flammable crap and lit by CANDLES would NOT be the way I'd cut back. That's like farking Paris Hilton without a condom.

If I owned a business, insurance would be pretty far down the list of things I would drop in tough times. Business's Internet access, my pay, employees would all be cut first.

I live in the middle of the woods. My grandfather keeps harping on me to cancel my fire insurance to save money. Screw that. There are hundreds of thousands of acres burned in Alaska every year. As usual, I'm just hedging my bet that it won't be my acreage this year. Eventually it will be.

A ways north of here is an antique store, where the owner specializes in barn-find-quality wooden furniture. Seriously, this place is two 60'x120' pole barns, filled wall to wall and floor to ceiling with bedroom and dining sets made of hardwood that has been drying out since FDR's second term. If that place ever burned you'd see the flames for miles.

Interestingly, they also have dozens of Dietz oil lanterns. However I don't think they ever light any of them. I wonder why......

I am refusing to cancel my excess life insurance for the same reason...

He was also about to break the Penn State child molestation scandal wide open just before he vanished.
 
2012-04-30 09:34:06 PM  

fat boy: At least she saved $400-500 or so


Depending on the value of what she has and of the barn you could put another zero on that number.

Sympathy? From a Farker? A TOTAL Farker?

He puzzled and puzzed till his puzzler had wore. Then wildsnowllama thought of something he hadn't before. Maybe the internet, he thought... doesn't come from buts sore. Maybe the internet, perhaps... means a little bit more!

And what happened, then? Well, in Farkville they say - that wildsnowllama's small heart grew three sizes that day. And then - the true meaning of the internet came through, and wildsnowllama found the strength of *ten* Farkers, plus two!

Then the Fark trolls emerged. Oh! The pain and the hurt. Not like they want you to, no! From stupidity so curt. And wildsnowllama realizes once more, "shut up and be cynical." Compassion? What a chore.

Reminds me of last season's "Full Throttle Saloon" when the guy got creamed by the worst hailstorm in South Dakota's history--and had canceled his hail insurance that year to cut costs because in 10 years they'd never had a hail storm.

God has a sick sense of humour....
 
2012-04-30 09:40:28 PM  
how someone that monumentally stupid ever managed to acquire more than a few dollars is beyond me.

I sell commercial fire insurance, so I'm getting a kick, etc. etc.

You wouldn't believe the number of businesses that run without insurance, or who carry inadequate insurance. Contractors in particular will carry coverage that will provide them the proof of insurance that they need to bid on a job, but that doesn't really cover them for the job they're doing. The shenanigans are just epic. When people get desperate, they get stupid.

Would you really want someone working on your project whose disaster plan is too declare bankruptcy and open under a new name?

No lie there, I've heard some people are going to 60% ITV on their buildings. When I worked for an Am Fam agent about five years ago he had a drywaller who had a bad habit of letting his WC policy lapse when the work got slow. At least if they drop comp/collision from vehicles the roll of the dice isn't as dicey.

Yep. Anyone snarking and acting superior in this thread can STFU. We've all done it.

Also this. Property and liability insurance are desperately important because anything could happen, leaving you personally on the hook for HUGE losses.
