It Ought To Be Gold Plated

August 24th, 2006 at 06:50 pm

I bet you can relate...

We recently changed insurance agents after a bazillion years with the old guy.

Yesterday The Hubster got a postcard from our new agent for his birthday.

Now this may sound petty, but the old agent at least used to send a real birthday card.

We just paid both our house and car policies for the entire year this month. Well over a thousand dollars and closer to two thousand. OUCH!! I told The Hubster, "For the price you pay I want you to receive a gold plated birthday card w/one of those fancy gold foil inserts inside the envelope!!"

Oh well, I suppose this is one of those cost cutting things that made the new agent's policies less expensive to begin with - low overhead!!

Okay, no gold plating, but please a real card would of been nice. AND...it had the name printed out on a label. Come on, not even a hand addressed postcard? Nor was there any handwritten signature either.

Hummpphhhh.....WELL I do declare!

    Really! If it is so impersonal, why even bother sending it? It does not shine forth as a good "business practice".

    I agree boomeyers. I'd of rather Hubster had gotten nothing from them than this This THIS 'wasted' effort. I mean - a tree had to die, glue was used, human effort extended, transportation cost, etc.

    I mean - if you are going to make an effort, Make An Effort! Okay, end of rant. This is just sillyness anyway.

    Jim, ole buddy, you can pass on the birthday postcard next year, really, it will be okay. Just play another round of golf and we'll be okay over here.

    Really, we will.
