I was having some drinks with my friend N, an insurance agent when her phone rang. She took the call and ended it after a couple of ‘Yes’ and Nos’. As she was about to dig into her roti canai, the phone rang again and with a furrowed brow and a loud sigh, she picked up the phone. This time around she got up from her chair and walked out of the noisy restaurant to speak to the caller and only came back about 5 minutes later. Another loud sigh and some unprintable mutterings. She related her phone conversation and it went something like this:

Caller : So, if use credit card hor, have to pay extra charges or not?

N : No charges.

Caller : Can I just go to the branch and swipe my card ar?

N : Can.

Caller : Sure or not? Last time they said kenot wor?

N : Last time system not up yet lor. Now OK ledi.

Caller : But you said need to fill forms and I hate that la.

N : If you go personally to swipe your card, no need to fill forms.

Then every year you come personally to swipe la.

Caller : Tsk…so mahfun wan.

N : But if you fill the forms, they will charge this year and auto-bill next year.

Caller : Aiyoh, lidat how can? Very dangerous la.

N : Huh???

Caller : Afturds my mom die liao, they continue to charge my card. How la?

N : Huh? You mean, you won’t want to come and claim the money izzit???

Caller : Errr…hehehehe….

**slaps forehead**

Some people are just….just….DUNGGU lar.

For that we have the L sign on the forehead. Duh.
thank goodness lulu not kiasu. as it is, lulu already so dungu. if tambah kiasu, then these dungu moments would be more frequent.

The insurance agent has to deal with all sorts of people, so patience is indeed a virtue she must have!

She can still keep her calm in such situation.

Another dunggu got question: I tot you can claim insurance only when it's accidental death lah, if death by natural causes macam heart attack then cannot claim leh. Dat's why people say dun take life insurance becoz unless motokar gelek mati or somtin lidat then can claim, take the other policy where if reach 60 year old not chyet die yet then can draw money go puak kieow.

This is too funny!! Guess people worry so much that they forgot the obvious.
  At 10:11 AM Blogger Will said:
firehorse: i think you got a bit confused :P

life insurance cover almost all deaths (even suicide if the policy is after a certain period)

personal accident is the one that only covers a person if the death is by accident

hope this helps :D
