Insurance Agents

By Rahman Pauzi

Insurance agents and their persistance, I’d have this lady agent coming to see me for quite a while now, I think about 3 – 4 times already, kept badgering me to buy an insurance plans from her. I think I’ve heard every other type of insurance plans there is. The funny part is I know her supervisor, and the guy has never offered once any insurance plans for me. Instead offered me to become an insurance agent which I promptly refused. And I actually do go out with the supervisor guy. I think he’s the branch manager or something for Penang. After telling all that to the lady, still she said, ahh why don’t u buy from me laaaa.. I need to have other excuses, today she was trying to get me to buy an insurance/saving plan. Which I promptly says that I have a saving plan going along just now at Tabung Haji and doesn’t want to think about it anymore. I mean I’ve had the saving plan when I was in my primary school why should I change it or anything.
I’m pretty sure that someone will say that insurance is a good thing for a rainy day and so on. But I don’t see that yet. Yeah I know bad stuff can happen, but hey, it’s not like my mom ain’t gonna help or anything right. 🙂 . Among the main reason that I don’t want an insurance plan is the that I don’t like knowing that I have to spend an amount every month. It’s not like I have a steady income. It’s the same thing with other stuff. I’m still using prepaid at a time when I can afford to use a line. Oh yeah, I do have a telephone line under my name, that was for my old “rumah sewa”. Someday maybe I’ll get a plan, if ever when I have my own car, my own house something… not ready to put myself to some strict plan.
