He's Asking ME *WHY*?

April 10th, 2011 09:26 am | by Ed |

I'm in my office one day last week, busy trying to take care of a backlog of work that was nearing the deadline when this guy, I'll call him John, comes in. Now John's a decent sort, though not very bright most of the time. Usually he has the courtesy (unlike several people around here!) to leave me alone when I'm working because he knows that I need to get this stuff done by the deadline or I don't get paid for it.

Anyway, John walks in and starts right out by asking me where he can get low priced auto insurance. The very first thing that's wrong here is that I am NOT an insurance agent. In fact I know very little about it at all. Mostly I just know that you're legally obligated to buy it even though they are not legally obligated to sell it to you.

I pointed this out to John who responds with an eloquent "Oh crap". I told him that the only suggestions I could give would be to look at and talk to Frank B. who knows a heck of a lot more about the subject than I do.

I'm grateful that this little exchange took only about five minutes or so and I could get back to work. Most interruptions take hours to settle.
