  1. Cancelling insurance attached to a bank loan

    Recently took a bank loan at our local sparkasse I knew to be prepared for added extras like insurance and such, but typically you can decline it or it's a small fee. Well the NL@TB said we had to take insurance. OK, rate at 9% was a bit high but I'm planning on paying it out early and that's the point we discussed. She also said and this is important the insurance is pro rated over the life of the contract (no 100% sure on that as my German isn't that good) Got home and took a closer look at the contract and realized they simply added it to the loan, suddenly my loan is 25% larger!   Speaking with my insurance agent (Herr JohnG love that dude) he said they can't force you to take the insurance. Sure I can pay it out early but I'm still stuck paying out 1800€ for some stupid insurance.   So before I head over to take a stripe off of ass is it true they can't force you to take insurance. I also need to confirm with her that the insurance is pro rated   Secondly is it possible to cancel a loan (subject to loads of fees) within a certain period   Thanks   BTW I did apply via payback.de for a loan and they did a nice bait and switch. Advertized interest was 4.9% while the contract was 7.9%
  2. Are people with tattoos stupid?

    By stupid I don't mean that your not nice, friendly fun to be around just that you have a low IQ or aren't' smart enough to have a white collar job. I mention that because the latest rage in tattooing is neck face and if your a girl arm tattooing. I figure that anyone getting a tattoo that can't be covered by clothing must not be smart enough to get into University and have a carrier. Any company that my wife has worked at (and being a consultant its plenty) you wouldn't get past the front door with a tattoo that wasn't covered. But then on the other hand if your only ambition in life is to be an extension of a machine than having tattoos can be a big help. If you a girl, not a problem, stay at home mom, you don't need a PDH to raise kids. If you a guy than obviously your choices are limited to jobs that require only a strong back ( strong back weak mind as they used to say).   mentioned this becuase I saw a girl the other day with a beautiful tattoo running down the full length of her arm. She was very pretty, a real pleasure to look at. Her tattoo in particular against her white skin really stood out. Very hip. Only problem is she doesn't realize that its going to look really lower class in a few years when she's married with 3 kids and weights 17 stone. My sister in law is good example of that her tattoos looked really good on her before she got married, now with 4 kids and 5 stone of extra weight it looks terrible. Thankfully she doesn't bare her midriff much any more. So I don't' have to look at them.   I'm sure that there are lots of TTers out there that like or have tattoos, but does a tattoo really look good on an overwieght middle aged women. Well I suppose if does if your a biker chick.
