This lady sent me an email yesterday. Either we have a new agent or she handed us off to someone else in the office.

Dear Kevin,

I would like to talk to you about adding a layer of protection to your insurance. In order to be fully protected from unexpected events, I would like to get you an umbrella insurance quote.  An umbrella policy provides you with additional coverage when your home and auto limits are exceeded. Can you please answer a few question for me, so  I can get you a quote? If you are more comfortable calling me, I can be reached at (920) 230-7000. Thank you!

Oh!  They are so concerned about our lack of coverage!  I'm thinking they just want more of our money! Screw you, Allstate!

Sounds like they've got you pegged as a pigeon....

pi·geon1
/ˈpijən/
noun
  1. 1. a stout seed- or fruit-eating bird with a small head, short legs, and a cooing voice, typically having gray and white plumage.


  2. 2. INFORMALNORTH AMERICAN
    a gullible person, especially someone swindled in gambling or the victim of a confidence trick.

Maybe if you upgrade your policy, they'll send you a free, personalized t-shirt...



Maybe a nice little picture for your wall....



LOL

I have a picture of a pigeon on the back porch!  It would take me a month to find it.

Please tell me, Jimbo. What would you do if you got a call or an email like this. Somebody called not too long ago!  I don't need these high pressure sales tactics!  I've added full coverage to my truck...(because we borrowed money against it) why don't they volunteer all of these discounts for me? They just want to screw me!

I would either just ignore it or call the number and ask exactly why they think I need to upgrade my coverage, what the potential benefit, if any, would be and how much it would cost vs how much I'm already paying. Ask what kind of discounts, if any, I qualify for and what the lowest possible price would be. Then I'd tell them that I need time to think about it and discuss it with the missus.

If the money wasn't right, I just wouldn't call them back and I'd ignore any future attempts by them to contact me. Maybe reply to one email telling them I'm not interested.

I had to turn on my subscription for Sling TV today.  The Rolex 24 at Daytona.

The F*ckers raised the price by 5 dollars a month.  I don't really think it's worth it!

It's bad enough that Mama's annuity payment won't hit the account until Monday, the freaking server for the Credit Union has been down all day!  I can't check the balance or anything!  In this day of electronic transactions,  would it really hurt those f*cking 9 to 5er's to make the payment over the weekend!

Our tax dollars at work!  Angry What is that old 'Well Drillers' joke?

Colder Than a Well Digger’s Ass

This phrase is a crude reference used to describe an ambient temperature.  Every well digger knows his ass from his elbow and his ass from a hole in the ground, because their job requires them to use a shovel and a bucket to dig down deep into the earth to create a well.  Why is a well digger’s ass so cold?  Could a well digger’s ass be getting cold because they forgot to cover up their ass?  Is a well digger’s ass any colder than a witch’s tit?  Is a well digger’s ass cold enough to freeze the balls off of a brass monkey?  Is it any colder than the handle on an outhouse door?

I don't remember where I read this, but it was likely in Esquire Magazine, which my mom got me a subscription to when I was around 20 or so.

Anyway, I member reading about something that was seen written in a men's room toilet stall at Harvard U. about the girls at neighboring Radcliffe, who call themselves "Cliffies".

It went:

Q.) What's the difference between a Cliffie and a toilet seat?

A.) A toilet seat eventually warms to the touch.

I got another call from the local 'Energy Star' program.  I just went through their standard interrogation a month ago or so.  I felt bad!  Hanging up on this sweet sounding woman!  NO!  I don't want to buy new windows!

Glad you enjoyed it. Wink

I thought it was pretty funny too.

Hence the reason why it stuck in my mind for four decades. LOL

I've been getting robo calls from Chase Bank.

I finally got fed up and signed up on the National Do Not Call List or whatever it's called.

We'll see if it works.

No love from my house this Valentine's Day. Cry  Was taking the garbage out & found the water heater leaking. Nothing catastrophic. Yet.  Lasted almost 10 years.  More damn things I need to fix... Angry

The scammers ignore the Do Not Call List! They can even mock a local number to get you to pick up. I think there are even legitimate businesses that ignore it too. I've had calls from Travel Agencies, Health Insurance companies, Extended Auto warranties...You name it!

The government keeps talking about cracking down on 'Robo-Calls'.  They are not supposed to call cell phones. One of the reasons I get so many calls, I took the land line phone number to my cell phone.  It's a published number.
