I rang my insurance company a few months ago to check up on some minor issue; they just needed some more documents, so no real problem. Then I casually mentioned that I was thinking of replacing my gear knob, while waiting for her to check something on her PC. The lady then wanted to know why, I said there was a small scratch on it and I wanted to replace it with a black leather one as the OME was a bit pricey. She then got a bit suspicious about how I had managed to scratch the original knob. "what I'm becoming concerned about sir is how you managed to damage the interior of your car". Blimey I though, I only wanted a new gear knob, I'm a perfectionist and I like to take car of my motor, it was slightly scratched when I bought it, that is all. She told me she would have to make a note on my records! I'm glad I did not tell her about the new mats I bought. From now on I shall be very careful what I say.
