So, I get home from work tonight to find that the strong winds had snapped a tree in half which has fallen over and blocked my driveway. If my daughter's Blazer had been parked there, like it usually is, the tree would have fallen right on top of it.
That would have sucked. But, because it wasn't parked there and the people I rent from are FUCKING AWESOME, by the time I got home they had already trimmed away the part of the tree blocking my driveway.
If I owned my home, I'd have had to deal with calling my homeowner's insurance to file a claim, hire someone to come and clear away the fallen tree and be faced with a great deal of unbudgeted, out of pocket expense.
But because I rent from awesome landlords, it was mostly a non-event. I didn't have to call and tell them about it. I didn't have to ask them to do anything. They just fucking took care of shit so that I wouldn't be inconvenienced in any way.
Fuck a bunch of home ownership. Never again.
