As you may have noticed, the husband and very seldom watch actual tv. This makes us lightyears better than you. Excuse me while I put something away in my PBS tote bag.
We watch Netflix and Hulu, so I don't often see actual commercials. [Although I can probably recite the Tempurpedic commercial by heart right now. THANKS, HULU. Also, does anyone actually know anyone who has a Tempurpedic? I do not, but I do have a few questions, like, 1. Are regular beds not good enough for you? and 2. Did you also by the Shark Steam Cleaner? Because I really covet those.]
I have, however, seen a commercial recently that have made me want to kill someone.
It is a HAP insurance commercial. I have HAP. It is shitty, in that it is an insurance company, and therefore will fuck you over as much as possible and also make it impossible to get anything done. You know what I mean, of course, if you have had anything to do with an insurance company.
Well, in the ad, a mom talks about getting a call from her son 11,000 miles away that he was sick. So she's all wigged and calls HAP and the nice person at HAP emails her information on the nearest best hospital and made sure that they had an English speaking translator.
I just about kicked the shit out of the t.v.
Because when the girl dislocated her knee [AGAIN] in December, I had to deal with having an out-of-state claim on our insurance. So I called and got authorization and was told that we would pay the fee and then HAP would reimburse our claim.
It is now MAY 10th and I STILL DO NOT HAVE MY MOTHERFUCKING $332.
FUCK YOU HAP. Oh, fuck you so hard.
Every time I call, it's, "Oh, we didn't get that." EXCEPT YOU DID, BECAUSE I HAVE HERE IN MY NOTES THAT WHEN I CALLED IN JANUARY, FEBRUARY, MARCH AND APRIL, you not only had the claim, or needed the claim, which I faxed and mailed, and the doctor's office also faxed and mailed to you, and Pretending To Be Helpful Lady said "Oh, yes, we are processing the claim. It will take 30 days."
AND IT IS MAY. MOTHERFUCKERS.
So, yeah, the idea that anyone at any insurance company does anything helpful makes my fucking head explode.
