A little rant
Im the 74yo SM of SD58 who we subsidize after a 10- month residence with us where we were terrorized by her drug use, lying, stealing, manipulation and night creeping. Part of the deal is that her car insurance is charged to our credit card and she reimburses me in cash for it monthly. This is working ok altho I don't know if the money she hands me is hers or 83yo DH's but I don't care since he and I separated finances. She has no credit.
When I got my charge a couple days ago, I noticed a different insurance amount, say $20. I told DH to let her know. Today, I said, did you talk to her about the insurance. DH: ok, I'll call her. Later, DH: it's not that big a deal (meaning just pay it and don't bother her). I said, i know it's not a big deal but she needs to know what it is. DH: can't you call? I said, no, I can't call, I don't know the policy number or anything (note: I wouldnt call even if I did). Later, he called her but at his age, gets confused and gave me the phone.
I explained to SD58 that we are seeing a diffetent amount and I don't know what it is and suggested she call. Next, she went on for 15 minutes how she hates this stuff, how all her friends pay less, how her brother gets hundreds of tickets and doesn't pay this much, how this type of thing makes her anxiety worse. As she was ranting, i noticed the $20 was on the same day as we normally see the debit so I suggested this might be a rebate or one-time deduction. Another 15 minutes ensued of how she knows her insurance isn't going down to $20 a month, how she is going to call and cancel, how this stuff makes her so nervous.
At this point, I was holding the phone about a foot from my ear and DH was looking on anxiously. I finally said, call them, it might be goid news, a one-time reduction, here's Daaad.
Her last question, what's their phone number?
