The meaning of the word “number”

I’m dealing with paperwork today — and working, never fear.

I decided to have a go at seeing how much I could save by putting my auto insurance and home-owner’s insurance under one policy. I’m waiting to hear back. In the meantime, I thought I would share with you two pieces of entertainment Geico provided me with today.

Now, let me assure you: GEICO has been a wonderful insurance company. They have been quick and fair in all their handlings, even leaving my “good student discount” on for longer than I was in school — though that may have been an oversight. They just did two funny things today:

  1. Notice of Policy Change… “Under Exclusions, we included an exclusion for nuclear exposure or explosion and an exclusion for biochemical attack or exposure to bio-chemical agents.”
  2. Confirmation number from my address change: “12B4-2DI34…” — Did you know B was a number? How about D, or I?

I’m done now.

    Oh, don’t worry too much about the nuclear/bio-chem stuff.

    My auto and renter’s insurance specifically states that I’m not insured for space craft. When I called and asked, it was still unclear if they meant damage to a space craft I own or damage to something I own by a space craft.

    Also, I’m not insured for acts of war, civil war, insurrection, rebellion, or revolution. And nuclear explosions are considered acts of war, even if they’re accidental.

    But it says nothing whatsoever about acts of god.
