    Intro

    Ok I'll give this one more shot. Hi, my name is Jason and I'm an insurance adjudicator originally from Maryland. I work in and round the DC/I495 corridor, kind of a road warrior. I created an account on Bullshido years ago that I lost somehow back around 2011. Instead I started following the FB page, just lurking. Not really one to chat a lot online, I recently got super bored and decided to join the new FB group. Holy shit, the fireworks were the most amusement I've had since Myspace.

    Anyho, I decided to try to get back into my old account but gave up and created this one. It's a portmanteau of "boss man" and the original Number of the Beast from Revelations. Sounded appropriate for BULLSHIDO. I remember a Newbietown spot and wanted to post a quick bio but can't find it. Already got trolled in a couple threads and am now totally confused about what the trolls are even saying. So this is the thread to set me straight. Do your worst but please keep it here. I know the drill with hazing Newbies.

    Martial arts wise, I have some karate point sparring experience and I'm signing up for MMA/bjj lessons after I reach my fitness goals for the summer (lose 20lbs, up my runs to 10 miles). It's fucking wet and hot in "the Swamp" this time of year, it was over 95 yesterday with flash storms.

    Welcome back.

    Tell me more about insurance adjudication. Should we hate you, love you or consider you a necessary evil?

      Hey Joe. I'm pretty sure I'm quitting that job soon. I question it every day it's kind a souless work. Basically my job is to decide how much you need to pay out of pocket for shit, after all your other coverages factor in, and whether or not you even qualify for what your coverage said, like if you lied to the police in an accident or submitted a fraudulent claim. He hard part is most people don't do anything like that but still come up really short and get a huge bill. Since ACA it's been hit and miss. Lots of poor people just above the poverty multiplier who don't qualify for medicaid or local assistance now have coverage and of course if they can't pay, there are ways to get help if you are truly needy. It sucks for the middle class folks who have coverages up to 60-80% and for a costly procedure still get a Whopper of a bill and no such luck going down to the state welfare office. It sucks showing people their numbers sometimes they even cry or threaten me.

      Local accountant firms are always hiring good numbers people for the back-office. Thinking of getting my CPA so I can crunch numbers and give people better news than "yeah well you have decent coverage but the overage is still gonna run you $10,000". Soul sucking job. I hate it, but someone has to do it. Rather give it to some younger yuppie without a conscience to bother them.

      I went to school for psych. That was a huge mistake. Job prospects were nil.

        Some positive news though, I am leaving tomorrow for a long awaited vacation to Rwanda. Anyone been there before, let me know some good off beat spots to visit. I already have a basic course of places to hit but wouldn't mind adding some more. 3 weeks of African sun, baby. I can't wait.

              Welcome and welcome back.

              You will experiance a minor fazing period during which you will be called Wrabbit.

              This will pass as it did with Dung Beatle.

              You will then have to choose if you enjoy being around a bunch of arseholes being arseholes to each other whilst trying to sound as intelligent as possible.

              If you are very very lucky somebody will offer to fight you over a difference of oppinion and we will all regale over such an offer for months until it peters out into pure chi energy.

              And so it goes on this thing of ours.

                Sounds like a cake job, to me. Could be way worse. Does it pay well with good benefits?
