We’ve seen our share of unusual claims. We’ve even had to make one ourselves.
I had a lovely string of antique pearls Randy had given me as a gift. I really loved that necklace! I wore it everywhere.
Unfortunately one day the strand broke. Pearls scattered everywhere! After frantically gathering all the pearls, I carefully bagged them and slipped them into my purse to take to the jewelers.
My dog watched the whole affair. I never knew my fuzzy baby was a pearl connoisseur – or a jewelry thief! Unobserved, she dragged the pearls out of my purse and escaped with them. By the time I discovered her dastardly deed, she had half the bag emptied! Yes. My dog ATE my lovely antique pearls!
We all know that with a dog, what goes in will eventually come out. Sure enough the pearls did come out, but… ewww! They were partially digested! They looked nothing like the beauties they used to be.
I have to admit i was a little embarrassed making that claim. Sometimes when an insurance company pays a claim on damaged property, they will take possession of the property. So naturally, I asked them if they wanted me to send them what was left of the pearls.
No. They did not. 😉
