Aha, good for you, Jim — a positive spin on the post. I must ponder this!

Well she definitely sounds like she's in control! i bet they have to ponder the claims suggestion!
 
Good advice to the claims adjusters!
 
They should have been doing this all along. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. :)
 
Thanks for the laugh, Jim.
Yikes, what if all businesses were
run that way?!
Nice to see you back microfictioning.
 
As one who has sadly learned the realities of long term disability insurance, I didn't find this funny at all. But it certainly is realistic.
 
GMa, I agree with you, it really is sad, the ways insurance companies use to avoid and/or minimize payment on claims of any kind.

Most effort as I see it is spent on marketing, selling mainly, and second is minimizing payouts.

It is sad, but that practice is also a butt of a lot of wry humor jokes.
Mostly I would catagorize their approach as an attrociously pathetic and irresponsible way of doing business.

My comment sounded pretty negative and I apologize for that, Jim. It was reflective of my dislike for insurance companies, not for your fine sense of humor.
 
I always wondered how it worked in the insurance business, quite sad. Thank you for explaining Jim ;-)
 
Truth with a side of humor.
 
LOL! Everyone is using "ponder" in their comments, so I will be different-what a nice positive take this week.
 
I haven't figured out how to read the story Jim!

I see you were in NE and did you visit Cliff while you were there??

Poor Adi, she is really old! Pup has his ups and downs. I just take it one day at a time with him.
 
Love the assertive approach...no lollygagging here! Now if I could only learn a modicum of assertiveness, my life might be different...LOL!
 
Ah, funny. Yep, may as well give ourselves raises.
 
Positive and tongue-in-cheek all at the same time. Nice one!
