Q: I’m paying too much for car insurance.
Money’s really tight right now, and I need to cut
back where I can. What would you suggest?
A: There are many ways you could go here, but
I would recommend, if you are a safe driver and
have a good record, that you switch to Geico.
You’ll save 25% percent on your car insurance
Q: Well, that’s a good discount; however, it’s
still a little pricey for me. Are there any other
A: I’m glad you asked, because I happen to
know that if you switch from Geico to Allstate,
you’ll save an additional 30%.
Q: Wow, that is a good deal. But, you know, it
would be really great if I could pay even less than
that for car insurance. After all, I have two kids
and need to pay for college.
A: No problem there. If you switch from Allstate
to Progressive, you’ll save another 40%.
Q: Awesome! Hey, um, listen. Not to get greedy
or anything, but I’d really like to be able to afford
a down payment on a house.
A: Absolutely. If you switch from Progressive to
Geico, you will save an additional 60%.
Q: Yeeh–! Wait a minute. Didn’t you already
have me switching to Geico earlier on?
A: Yes, I did. And switching to them again will
save you even more money.
A: Switching insurance providers saves you
money. It can’t be any simpler than that.
Q: That doesn’t make any sense.
A: You don’t seem to understand. Insurance
Land is a magical place full of talking geckos,
whee-whee piggies, mischievous woodchucks
and all manner of wacky misfit human beings.
And cavemen. Anything is possible there, for
when we are amused, all barriers fall . . . .
Q: Hee hee. I love that one commercial with
the duck that says the name of the company.
AFLAC, isn’t it?
A: We’re talking about car insurance here. Try
to stay on topic.
Q: I thought you were supposed to answer any
question you’re asked.
A: You can’t believe everything you hear.
If you have a question for the Helper Guy,
please send it to yo’ mama. Peace out.
