The adjuster called me back today. They're going to pay me just over a grand more than I owe on the car. What a relief. Here I've been for the last week, worrying about getting lowballed on my claim. Once USAA pays off the bank, I can use what little money's left to find some cheap, beat-to-death, easy-to-maintain pickup. All I want is something to get me around and haul parts for the Toronado, and the car note off my budget. Things are going pretty well now. GEICO is still sandbagging USAA over the white-trasher's policy status, but it's out of my hands now.
