On my way home from the home center today, a mudding enthusiast managed to pop two rocks into my windshield that left two chips in the glass. I handled it with the grace and charm I exhibit on all such occasions — that is to say, copious amounts of creative language and possibly one or two rather impolite gestures. After I arrived home I felt annoyed but as calm as anyone is with two dime-sized chips in his forward glass.
I had seen commercials for glass repair on TV and on the web, but had never used the service. After a little research I placed a call to Safelite to survey the damage. They in turn connected me with my insurance company who informed me that little chips/cracks like this can be repaired at no out-of-pocket and no hit on the insurance, as long as it’s done with a reputable repair service — of which Safelite was one.
To my great surprise I scheduled a service call to take place in the driveway on the other side of the weekend, and that was it. I keep waiting for the “gotcha” that’s coming, but thus far I can’t seem to find it. Further updates to come after the glass is fixed.
