In which Nienna finds a new Insurance Agent and we say goodbye to calamari

(And if you don't get that reference, well, you had a sad childhood)

I got really pissed at my insurance agent last week. (once I have it all settled I'm going to post 'another dissatisfied customer' episode.) So I set out on Friday to find a new one. There are 3 State Farm offices in my neighborhood so I figured I at least had choices. I stopped at the first office, the agent was out playing golf and the only person actually in the office said that she didn't take my part of the alphabet, that girl was on vacation, and took my business card. (they never did call me.) I thought about stopping at office #2 but decided to run into wal-mart first and then hit 2 and 3 on my way home. 3 was closer to wally world so I pulled in there. Much to my surprise there were actual humans there.

Blonde chick- Hi! what can I do for you?
me- I'm in the market for a new agent.
Blonde - Come on in and have a seat *plunks in chair with a grin* are you a new or existing state farm customer?
me- I've been with State Farm since 93.
Blonde - lucky you! (long term customers get breaks on their homeowners which costs a fortune here) Did you just move here?
me - I moved from Sarasota and kept my old agent but I'm not getting quality customer service.
Brunette at next desk - *dead pan comedy face* Well you're not likely to get it here either!
Blonde - *laughing* stop it! she just got in here.
Brunette - *ignores her* We'll just take your money and give you a cheap pen. (I bust out laughing, this is pretty much the level of service I get from my old office)
Blonde - *giggling* Did anyone tell you how to start the transfer procedure?
me - *still snickering* nope, you two are the most helpful lot I've met so far.
Brunette - *shakes head* what a tragic commentary on our times
Blonde - let me get you a cheap pen and the information you'll need. *while blonde looks for stuff I take stock of the room. Brunette has Captain Jack all over her desk*
Me- Pirates! Excellent! You can't be all bad.
Brunette - Damn he's hot.
Blonde - You'll have to go look and see what she did to the lady's room. *giggle*

I peep in the door and there is a huge poster of Jonny Depp. It was all I could do to keep from laughing hysterically. I collected my cheap pen and my information and went home. I didn't see any reason to stop at office #2... it's not going to get any better than that. I didn't meet the actual agent but how bad can he be if he lets the office assistants paste pirates all over the place?

And in honor of my weekend of piracy I posted a short fanfic. It's a comedy piece but think of it as a proper ending to POTC3... I'm still lamenting that.

Major spoilers, you've been warned.

And I'm officially down to a size 14. I managed to squish into a 12 while I was out dress shopping (I would have bought the durn thing too if the zipper wasn't broken. *sigh* This means I will now -have- to have a new corset before Pirate Fest in November.
