First, there was the deer incident that totaled my Sentra. I got enough from the insurance claim for a decent down payment on a new Subaru Impreza
Next, our dog was attacked by the neighbor’s dog. He’s doing well two weeks after surgery.

So now, my brand new car will need a brand new windshield.
I ought to know something about auto glass. Until last year, my family owned a glass business, and my dad was the one in charge of the automotive side. Even though he’s now retired and the company sold, my brother still works there as a auto glass technician.
When I file my claim with the insurance company, I will explicitly specify Kennedy Glass to install the windshield, and ask the new owners of the business that still bears our family name to assign this to my brother.
