Ensure you are insured

This week I want to write about insurance companies. I was reminded of this when two cars crashed at one of the intersections and World War III erupted between the motorists.

The script is usually predictable. First there’s an argument about who is wrong. After a few verbal exchanges the less vocal one somewhat concedes with a ‘let’s call the police’ refrain. And then the script veered off course with one motorist nastily claiming the other guy did not have motor vehicle insurance. That is when violence almost erupted.

Motorists involved in accidents still don’t realise that fighting after an accident does not result in the vehicles getting fixed but only adds to their sins. Many of us think insurance companies are made of Devil molecules. But they are not that bad though. Insurance companies are actually descendants of Judas but a more washed-up form of the man who sold Jesus. My encounter with insurance dates back to the early 90s when a man holding a briefcase in a suit knocked at my door. This was the time when such characters had more clout unlike now. Nowadays when you see a man in a suit holding a briefcase you know for certain he’s a scammer especially when he’s a pedestrian. Honest men in suits and dangling briefcases should be driving a certain form of motorised transport.
