Happy Valentine's from my insurance company

So, we got this piece of junk mail from our insurance company. An advertisment for life insurance with a little 'happy valentines' note from our agent and a poem. I shall recite it now for your enjoyment.


Because he loved me, brought to you by

He did the dishes

Rubbed my feet

Surprised me with tulips

Took me to musicals even though he didn't like them

Carried my bags while I did the shopping

Held my hand

He died of cancer four years ago.

Because he loved me,

I can stay in our home.

I can be here for our children.

I can afford to pay for their college education.

I can worry about the other things in life besides money.

He still loves me. And he still shows it.

Wow...that is I get the importance of life insurance but it almost seems sleazy to try and drive it home on Valentine's...with a poem about a dead spouse. Happy Valentine's...hope your spouse doesn't die!


  1. Oy. That is so sad!.. Unfortunately that scare tactic type of marketing will probably work for them when wives start freaking out :/

  2. That is really bad... Insurance is important and all, but really?
    And by the way your picture you posted yesterday is beautiful! Even without all the girly fluff you are really pretty! I have followed your blog for awhile and love your posts! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wow... That's just awful, and brutal and a low-blow. Buy my product or your spouse will die and leave you homeless... Thanks InsuranceAgent... real nice.
