Oh man... I just got a magnificent phone call from GEICO.
I DID have uninsured motorist coverage on my bike.
I thought I did and was confused when they said I didn't.
But I thought I was just confused from landing on my head in a accident.
Heh. Apparently I was...
$10,000 check coming at me after they finish verifying the at-fault parties lack of insurance.
YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY!!!!! That $3500 deductible on my medical was going to wipe out
my emergency funds. Whew!!!!! So that plus the $2200 I have on hand from gift money
plus the GEICO check of $1750 for my bike brings my cash from this accident up to $12,200.
If all goes according to my very lame plans I'll pay off the hospitals, and then
settle my tax bill and also pay off all the credit debt left from my brother's funeral last year.
That'll leave me roughly $2900 with which I COULD buy a motorcycle.
I'll worry about that when I get there.
But yay for my past-self's decisions.
Spending an extra $25 on my policy back in January netted me 10,000 today.
