A phone conversation that I have at least three times a week:
This is Dudu from ABC Insurance. I want to talk to you about extra health insurance.
I’m not interested.
But currently you’re not covered for organ transplants. What will you do if you need an organ transplant?
I don’t know, I guess I’ll deal with that if it comes.
God forbid, of course I don’t want you to need an organ transplant. But you have to care about your health. Don’t you care about your health?
And what about your kids? What will they do if you can’t take care of them while you’re having an organ transplant?
They’re pretty independent so hopefully they’ll be ok.
If you don’t get this insurance, you’ll end up banging your head against the wall in frustration.
Well, I’ll try to put a pillow on the wall before I bang my head against it, especially since my current insurance probably doesn’t cover self-inflicted head injuries. I’m not interested, good bye.
These salespeople’s tactics are very similar to the robo-call (what a great term for that! I saw someone use it recently, don’t remember who) recordings from the grave of Shimon Hatzadik promising eternal blessing if I just donate.
