Jul 11, 1999
I floated a Honda Accord through a flooded intersection. I pushed the car to Jim Clark's Auto Repair. Jim said the computer chip was cooked. Jim said the car took in a lot of water. I summoned the insurance company and after a couple of weeks, a representative arrived, proclaimed the Accord totalled, and hauled the thing off, all very secretly and without my knowledge. The day after the insurance guy had come, I drove a rental car to the shop to remind myself how stupid I was for driving through waist-deep water. I didn't see the Accord and went in to ask Jim where it was. He said they came and took it. Jim's staff had collected the stuff in my trunk and stored it in Quaker State boxes. Gathering the fishing tackle, sneakers, and saltines that the insurance company had left me, I was emptying the boxes into the rental car when Jim's assistants offered to let me keep their boxes. I told them I was very grateful. Touched. The boxes made things so much easier. After a few minutes, as I was bending into the rental to leave, they said "enjoy those boxes." A couple of weeks later I went by to tell Jim I'd finally received the insurance check and I was shopping for a car. I asked him what he suggested and he asked me what I got for my nine-year-old Accord. When I told him $7700, he said, "man, that's the best thing that ever happened to you." Last week I drove my Corolla a half mile out of the way to avoid water almost covering the street.
