insurance: If Life Were A Video Game - 03/13/09 02:41 AM
I heard my son saying "No! No! No! from the other room.
It wasn't loud and emphatic; There was more sadness and disappointment in the tone of his voice.
I went to see what was going on. He was sitting in front of the t.v. head down; body slumped forward.
"What's wrong" I asked. "Is it bad" I querried before he had a chance to answer.
"Yes" he said. "I got arrested."
"But it's only a video game & I turned it off real fast before it was saved." He said smiling.
"Too bad life isn't like that sometimes" I advised.

insurance: When Leaving Money On The Table Might Be A Good Thing. - 09/10/08 02:27 PM
I remember the first home we purchased. We had the usual emotions and feelings about owning our first home.

insurance: As Ron White Says: You Can't Fix Stupid. You Can't Insure It Either - 08/29/08 10:42 AM
One of comedian Ron White's funny punch lines is:
You can't fix stupid!
Insurance can help people recover from many things including some things that involved poor choices. But insurance doesn't cover everything and stupidity isn't one of them.
There are specialty insurance companies out there that will write coverage for things I wouldn't even imagine possible. But stupidity isn't one of them. 
One of the fundamentals of insurance is Risks Must Be Insurable. Stupidity isn't one of them.
