"Car insurance is for when you get in a wreck, not when your car just breaks down," I insisted.
Just to prove my husband wrong, I called our agent. Turns out, our agent proved me wrong. They do make car insurance that covers the cost of a tow if your have a breakdown. Who knew? Well, uh, Will but, um...
Unfortunately I never asked for this service on our policy since I didn't know it exists, so the policy we have does not cover a tow. Too bad. It's only $4 every six months per vehicle. Less than a buck a month.
The hash marks under the "Housewife FAIL" column I keep stored inside my brain are multiplying faster than the hash marks under my "Housewife WIN" column.
Oh well, as I tell our daughter all the time, "live and learn." See, this is just another example for me to show Katie how we learn from our mistakes. I think that means I should get a hash mark in both columns, since being a good role model falls under the "Housewife WIN" category.
