You can learn a lot about human nature by selling insurance. The same goes for teaching. The law says everyone goes to school and everyone buys insurance.
Or at least is supposed to.
I am appalled at the number of people who drive around every day and do not have car insurance. One of the ladies in our office was in a car accident with one of these people. The other guy plowed into her, totaled her car, and injured her. And he didn't have the common decency to have insurance! Luckily, she had Medpay and Uninsured Motorist, so her insurance paid for this other guy's mistake. Everyone involved was lucky that the accident wasn't worse. What would have happened then?
Statistically, this weekend is a dangerous one to be on the road. However, in my experience, the odds are in your favor that if you have an accident, the other guy has insurance. Why? Because drivers fear being stopped at a traffic check and not having a security verification form, so they buy insurance only before busy holiday weekends.
Looking around it's easy to witness people who have little regard for themselves. It's just too bad that they have such little regard for others, too.
