Switch to a different insurance carrier.

(first make sure there isn't something incorrectly listed on your MVR)
I checked. I had a careless driving ticket a few months ago. But a 200% increase??

Any recommendations who to switch to or who to call? Do I need a broker or can I go directly like with Geico?

Yup same here.

They said it's due to an accident from 3 years ago, more likely reason is the zip code I live in

I'm B'H switching to AAA, not cheap but half the price of Geico, using shimmy gross
Is AAA as reliable and strong as Geico?

Who in Lakewood makes the most shelf stable liver? So many places I have tried have good tasting liver but every few weeks it has a sharp, off taste by shabbos day,  even when buying and quickly putting it in a cold fridge. Some places it fairly infrequent while others Iíve had it go bad two weeks in a row. Iím tired of spending $8-$10 on something hit or miss.

Had this issue as well, very frustrating. Until I starting using Aisle 9 liver, havenít had an issue for years now (only time I had an issue was when I ordered for delivery). Also, depending on your fridge, double check the temperature for shabbos.

Aisle 9 was doing pretty good until the last two weeks in a row. I have noticed that the liver in the Route 9 location isnít always really cold when they put it out. My fridge is cold. Milk easily lasts close to a week after the expiration date.

Interesting because my bad experience was 2 weeks ago and I chalked it up to the delivery, last week DW thought it was off but I didnít think it was too bad. Have to see how it goes this week.

IME stores will refund you if it is off. Also I find that the sautťed is more shelf stable in general.

Iím always reluctant to constantly ask for a refund. Am I 100% sure every time  I didnít donít leave it out 10 minutes too long? It still shouldnít go bad under normal handling but Iím just not comfortable.

I have the same thing with a certain store's herring. They owe me over $100 by now, and I just stopped buying it over the last 6 months. They can be off even if they just put it out.

Whatís a ďnormalĒ price these days for an HVAC service call?

A guy just charged me $295 for a (15 minute) service call, as he charges $150 to come to your house, then $145 for the service.

Iím totally cool with a minimum charge of $150-200ish as he has to shlep to you, but I thought the way he billed here was double dipping, as the $150 doesnít include anything.

(Obv each call requires a different level of service/repair, I get that.)

Did he spend more than a few minutes on the problem?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
