It occurred to me that this was just another perk of being a catadjuster.  I have lived in many places, been a gypsy most of my life.  When I think back, my life comes back to me in bits and pieces, as a bit of what happened in this place and a bit of what happened in that.

Title: Cat Adjusting as a Profession (Is It For Me?)

My son is now ready to go to college away from home and excluding approximately 21 months in an attempt to try something different in my life as a "financial planner", I have been adjusting, supervising or investigating claims for almost 27 years. By the way, I have worked my share of hail, wind, tornado and hurricane cats for other carriers so I know from whence I speak. Even during the time while I was trying to become a "financial planner", I supplemented my income with adjusting temp jobs and contract adjusting work.

 There are many ways to approach the demise of the catastrophe adjuster.

   1) The fatal auto accident.

   2) The falling off the roof.

  3) The stroke

  4) The heart attack

Many of the above are related to the difficult and lengthily work hours we endure to provide our services to those that require them, as well as to provide for our families.

I am so tired of dealing with file reviewers.
