C'Mon Man!

If you haven’t caught ESPN’s “C'Mon Man” segment during NFL football games on Sunday, you’re truly missing out on some good clean humor related to the highlights of that week’s games. Recently it seems like I’ve been reading more and more insurance related articles that, after reading them, have caused me to sit back and say…C'Mon Man?! Really? You can’t be serious?!

  • A former female postal employee in Florida was collecting Work Comp benefits after claiming she suffered a lower back injury in 2009 that left her unable to fulfill her duties.  However, although the lower back injury prevented her from stepping in and out of the delivery truck, carrying...

  • I have to admit, although I have a Facebook account, I’ve never actually posted anything and am still trying to figure out how this company, potentially valued at $100 billion and has 500 million active users, adds value to my personal life, professional life or anything else for that...

  • Up In Smoke:  Homeowners Policy's Theft Coverage DOES NOT Apply to Seized Marijuana Plants

    So you think you’ve had a bad day?  On August 10, 2007, police produced a warrant to search a house and seized 12, seven-foot-tall marijuana plants, along with freezer bags...

  • What would we do without our pets!

    We love our pets, so much so that pet insurance has exploded as an industry as we try to keep fluffy and spot alive and well into a ripe old age.  I’ve never bought pet insurance, although I could have used it when Frasier, our Lab/Collie...
