Wants his cake and eat it too

An male reported a recent home fire.

His step daughter (who was an adult) left a stove top cooker (that was on) and a bottle of oil (that was too close to the heat) unattended.

By the time the fire was controlled, the kitchen was a total loss.

He reported that they received a $65,000 settlement from the Insurance company for repairs (it must be quite a kitchen!).

He reported the money received would more than cover the cost of the repair/re-model.

He was still annoyed.

"They are compensating me for our loss, but not for my time and all the phone calls I've had to make."

I decided to just say "yeah, I understand," instead of what I was really thinking.
