Drive by photo-op?

Apparently, I didn't have to clean up the playdoh under the table, but I did.
The inspector guy came by today - he was very pleasant. He was in the house and stirred up the curiosity of the kids - and then he was gone.

He wanted to take pictures of the following: The kitchen, the hot water heater, the breaker box and then the bathroom.


He told me that it was just something that the insurance company likes to check on to make sure what's in the insurance policy is what's really there.

I never got around to doing the dishes. I was too focused on other stuff. So he got my kitchen, dishes and all.

then he took a picture of our breaker box.

He couldn't get to the hot water heater. THere was a ladder in the way - so he took a picture of the pipes under the kitchen sink.

That left me scratching my head. I guess if we have pipes, then we must have running water.

then he wanted to take a picture of the biggest bathroom.
both our bathrooms are small... so he took a picture of the hall way bath -- where the kids towels from their showers were on the floor. (I thought about it later - the other bathroom was slightly bigger - and no towels on the floor.) And I think he only took a picture of the vanity. Go figure that one.

I guess our insurance company now has proof that we actually live in our house. And I mean really live.

After making sure we had no dogs (for the second time), he took a picture of the back of the house, he went through the gate and took a picture of the front of the house -- -- and then he was gone.

Just like that.

It was a very strange thing to have happen.
It was almost like a drive-by photo-op.

On a happy note - The Professor's work place has once again recognized his genius - and he got a raise.

Speaking of "Genius" - Today (or was it yesterday?) Jeremy (remember, he's 4) told his brother (who's 7): "I'm a genius".

Gotta love the confidence.

That is bizarre. Who woudl doubt that pipes and the breaker box and all are really there? Silly codes and rules!

Weird. You'd figure the insurance company would want to take pictures of the outhouse and maybe the cellar, but the indoor plumbing. What's with that?

Regina said...

That is a little strange, no pics of the roof or foundation , hummm.
Well at least it is done!

My kids STILL talk about the stranger who walked through our backyard taking pictures- same thing as you- it was for insurance purposes. I loved your little guys confidence. I heard my 5 year old painting the other day, saying :I am SOOO good at this!" I just loved hearing that!

the ways of insurance companies are mysterious indeed.

I'm glad the Professor got a raise.

Becky said...

Isn't that the way it goes ???

Hey, come see what happened at my blog this morning.

Melanie said...

That is pretty odd- why in the world do they want those pictures?

The genius comment is too funny!

what an odd odd man. I am so glad to hear you have pipes though. You know those insured pipeless people just drive me nuts! And I am sure they are jacking up the prices for all of us piped people.
