My cousin had a 3 DAY old baby that got very ill, so I went to Target to buy a sympathy card.
I was reading the cards in the " sympathy" section, when a lady said "hello."She then asked me who passed away?
Then her friend shows up & they just start trying help me find a card??? At first I thought it was thoughtful for them to try to help. But then they were overly pushy about what card I should get for MY cousin???
One lady kind of blocked my way out if the aisle while the other bluntly asked if I owned a home & how many children I have? I felt soooo violated? Yet, I was curious why they cared?
I said yes I own a home & no I have no children, why? She said that she does investments & I need life insurance since I have a home
I was shocked!
But I told her I work for "THE" largest insurance company in the nation & I am a life insurance specialist!
That didn't even phase her. She was like a robot. She had the nerve to ask me how much coverage I had?
I told her that I have more then enough in term & permenant insurance. They both put down the fact that I have Universal Life, Variable Universal Life & Term.
Then they asked "well about retirement?" I couldnt even stand there in that "sympathy" aisle any longer!
I just wanted to get away from them! They were the type of people that drive clients my way. It's because of pushy mobs like them that keep our clients right where they are.
Is the sympathy aisle a "Primerica" strategy?
Are funerals next??????
