Cracked My Windshield

What a great way to kick off my week back to school after Thanksgiving break. I was purposely running a little late to class Monday, trying to finish up some homework that was due (really, what kind of sick person gives homework over Thanksgiving break?), and then I headed out to class.

So I’m driving along down 565, and all I hear is this loud crack sound. Never saw anything, just heard something hit my car, so I’m kinda looking around and don’t see anything, so I get back to driving. A few minutes later, out of the corner of my eye I see this radial crack at the bottom of my windshield, and sickeningly realize that wasn’t there before. So I’m still driving, trying to do a Google search on my phone for how to stop a crack from spreading, and by the time I make it to class, it had already spread about halfway up the windshield, and it’s still slowly making its way across toward my side.


So I head on into class realizing there’s not really much I can do at this point. I was talking to some of my classmates about it, and I decided I’d give my insurance company a call to see if it would be covered. So I call them up, and they tell me that yes, I have glass coverage on my insurance plan. That’s great, right? Then she tells me that there is a $500 DEDUCTIBLE. Huh? I don’t know, I guess that’s usual for insurance places, but seriously, it isn’t going to cost anywhere CLOSE to $500 to fix. What do I pay them for again? *sigh*

Oh well, so basically that was just a long, drawn out way of saying I’m getting my windshield replaced today for $150. :/

And wow, it’s been a month since my last post, I need to update this more frequently, haha.
