I know this may seem ridiculous but it’s happened. I’ve been on my families car insurance for the 14 years I’ve been driving. Okay so my mother calls me and tells me that I owe $800 bucks for my years insurance, which I did not have back in April just laying around. Well I kind of forgot about it and got pulled over the other day for expired tags. Okay, I forgot to get my car smogged and pay the money for renewal. My bad. But I handed the cop my expired insurance and he was like “do you have your current insurance information” and I was like “officer you’re holding it in your hand”. Well he showed me that it was expired…needless to say that was majorly embarrassing. I told him that it has to be at my mothers house and that I just haven’t picked it up yet. He gave me a fix it for my tags and told me that I needed to go to court to prove I had insurance at the time. So the next day I called my mother and told her I needed my insurance and she told me she didn’t renew it…and I was freaking out! So I instantly get Geico paid my 3 months up front and get my new insurance information. I went to have dinner at her house with my bother and his fiancé last night and she handed me my AAA insurance. I was like WTF?! She said “I wouldn’t just leave you without insurance”. When I reminded her she stated that she didn’t pay, I got new insurance she just laughed and said she was kidding!?! Anyway I know I need to be a responsible adult but my rates through AAA were so much better than anywhere else because they had been members for like 30 years. I could just barely handle paying all that money up front being an independent contractor and only making money when I do work. Luckily I can go to AAA and get my stickers to pay this ticket off… Use this thread to post your own stories if they’ve happened to you. I’d like to see if any of you can relate.
