Most of you know that my husband has worked for Geico for almost 10 years now. Throughout his time with the company, he has held a variety of positions, but right now, he is actually a trainer managing a class of new employees who are learning the work of the claims department. So you can only imagine who’s voice I hear in my head while I’m driving, right?!
“The individual backing up in an accident is always at fault!”
“If you were keeping a proper lookout, that never would have happened.”
“Kristen, ALWAYS HIT THE ANIMAL. It’s WAY cheaper to hit a squirrel than hit another car because you were trying to avoid the squirrel.”
You get the idea.
