    I never thought I'd miss the collect call wars of the late 90s.

    Yeah. When that kind of shit qualifies as "the good old days," you know society is now scraping the bottom.

    At least those died out. I've been waiting for these insurance "we can save you hundreds over ..." to go away for too long.

    That plus their insurance is not great. Used to be a partner in a body shop (among other things) and would talk with their contract hired sharks, I mean adjusters, that would skimp on paying for necessary repairs or use lots of junk yard parts and then rush the shop by grinding on storage and rental car allowances. Also if there were any supplements (work you discover later that didn't get done during the repair or if the repair failed somehow like the paint fucks up) Progressive would never open a ticket back up and help the customer. Same goes with geico.

    Cheap insurance is just that. Cheap.

    The Geico caveman was bad, but the gecko they have now is pretty annoying too.
