A very good synopsisI never liked the US. I thought that if I stayed long enough maybe I would start to get used to it, but it didn't happen.
For me it feels like a very hostile place. The cops here are at war with the public, pretty much. There's this obsession with extracting money out of you from every angle, for example if you get sick you're potentially going to be screwed (depending on how your health insurance company acts), any concept of going to college or anything like that will result in you being massively in debt.
To me it's just a weird, violent, very restricted society.
There's a lot of reasons, some are silly. Over the last year or two I've no longer been able to deal with the heat for example, once it gets over ~30C I start suffering pretty badly.
Like clearly it's a huge pain in the arse to move back, I'm essentially an American at this point, totally out of the loop of what's going on in Ireland. Moving is expensive, and disruptive, it's pretty much the end of my career in the sense I'm not going to get promoted I'd guess. But I think that it's worth it. I fundamentally don't like living in the US, or US society, so I'm willing to do quite a lot to get away from it.
One guy told me about Quote Devil and XS Direct. Seemingly they might deal with "people like me".
Fucks sake. They look suspicious enough. But seemingly they're my options, English companies by the looks of it?
I have a no claims bonus like. And a license for close to 20 years. Zero incidents. I'll be driving the car as little as possible, in the arseholes of Cork. WTF is the problem here?
When I left Ireland I was insured on any bike for less than 200 Euro. And I was crashing weekly, and driving every day, as fast as physics permitted, like a lunatic. Dublin Motorbike couriers were telling me to relax a little bit. A Gard pulled me over and told me he'd give me a ticket but there was no point seeing as I'd be dead within a few weeks.
I'll be getting in this car, reluctantly, to drive kids to school, at around 40ks/hour, probably listening to some shitty middle of the road music, if that.
How does this make sense.
A friend moved back from Canada a while ago and was in the same situation. He was able to get a few thousand off his quote but had to agree to having a tracker in the car. Basically it beeps when you go (I think) over 10% more than the speed limit on that specific road. He did it with liberty insurance.
does your current insurer have any operations in ireland?
always wondered about that; a 'your company insures me and gives me an NCB here, but you don't trust your own company' approach.
a tracker? WTF?
