    I think he took the idea of a "Ram" a little too far

    I think I have the insurance company conned into fixing it instead of totaling it. She was a couple of months away from getting retired and restored.

    Now that is on hold.

    He used it to pick up a friend at 3:30AM and some one stopped dead in the middle of an interstate. He thought they were just slowing down so he moved to the other lane which had an obstruction in it so he moved bacn and they were stopped and it was raining pretty heavy.

    He has offered to pay the deductable. To be taken in extra side work that I give him. We will see.

    If it was logo'ed with DOT numbers, you probably would have bigger problems.

    I just upped my insurance to $300K the other day. Actually, I'm not as worried about this as I am having my employees stealing all my stuff. All three of my employees are brothers and I'm scared to death that if I pizz one of them off, they might all decide to run off with my trucks and trailers at the same time. That would put me out of business over night. I store my stuff at a storage place and they all have keys to the trailer locks and the storage unit. Obviously, I trust them. My most senior employee has had this sort of access for nearly six months now.

    If everything were to be stolen at once, I'd be covered with insurance for the replacement costs. The problem is, it would take me a lot of time to replace all the equipment and find new employees. I don't think I could get it done before I lost all my accounts.
