Just When You Thought It Was Safe…

Just when you thought it was safe...

Just when you thought it was safe…

BUREAUCRATIZLLA STRIKES, YET AGAIN!

Twice.

First, my private disability insurance.  I have a small stipend in addition to my Social Security disability, which comes from an insurance company policy I purchased when I was employed.  It’s not much, but it IS something!  I had to fight to keep it a couple years back, because they didn’t bother to read their own files. Recently, I received a letter from them stating they had not received copies of my medical records they requested from my primary care physician.  And they threatened cutting off my benefits unless I pushed this issue with the doctor.  Just in time for the holidays!  After much back-and forth, it was determined the doctor HAD sent the records, AND, the insurance company DID receive them.  THE SAME DAY the form letter went out to me!  So (for the moment) all is well with my private insurance.  (I’m reminded of Dave’s Law of Banking – the insurance company corollary – Insurance Companies are not in business to serve you.  They are in business to make money!  The didn’t build the John Hancock Tower by giving it all away.)

Second.  I live in a townhouse.  There are two (covered) spaces assigned for each homeowner.  Everyone else is to park in the uncovered spaces, which are plentiful.  My roomie (the homeowner) occupies both spaces, as is her right.  Traditionally, I park five spaces to the North, in the uncovered area.  No biggee, right?  It should be noted that I parked in this very same space before I lived here, as a frequent visitor, for the past 10 years!  There was never any problem.

NOW the (almighty) HOA (homeowner’s association) has taken it upon itself to ‘cite’ me for being a resident parked in a visitor space!  

Seriously?  And they have threatened me with being towed if I continue to park there!

The townhouse HOA here is very poor.  The exterior (their bailiwick) needs paint, maintenance, upkeep. There is a beehive residing outside my bedroom window, making it’s way into the eaves!

But they spend their time harassing tenants and collecting their monthly HOA fees.  And don’t get me started on the rear fencing!

I was ‘cited’ the same day I received the insurance company warning!

  2. When we needed a different house I told my wife there were 2 non-negotiables:
    1. NO HOA! I had one once and never will again.
    2. No second floor. I had one once and never will again.
    Come to think of it, since her knees went bad she hasn’t thanked me for that second one…

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
