|It’s story time. It has probably been years since you have heard a good story, so today’s the day. Blankies and warm milk are optional.Once upon a time there was a grown man named Jack who lived with his mom (story does not say if he lived in the basement or not, but we’ll assume that he did).Mom did not plan for retirement and only had a cow as an asset, which she gave to her son Jack to sell. Jack, being a poor planner, traded the cow for five “magical” beans that were promised to make a giant beanstalk. In 2014 speak, we’ll say that these are magical “beans stocks.”
Mom got frustrated with Jack and threw the beans out the window, which they did in fact grow into a beanstalk. (Fun fact…beans thrown out a window just become dried beans. On the ground.)
Jack, who gave into instant gratification, decided that it would be a good idea to climb the beanstalk, without accident insurance. Jack climbed to the top of the beanstalk and ended up in a village in the clouds (don’t try this at home, kids).
Once at the top of the beanstalk, Jack went to an Ogre’s house (which is really called “breaking and entering”). Jack decided to hide from the Ogre in an oven. (Again, Jack’s not very bright, and did not have disability insurance for the endless possibilities here.)
Because of Jack and his mom’s poor financial planning, Jack relented to thievery and stole the golden goose that laid the golden eggs from the Ogre.
The worst part of this story is that the Ogre did not have his golden eggs nor the golden goose insured. He also suffered a terrible fall. His wife did not have the Ogre insured, so she ended up living with her children (my story, my ending).
The moral of this story is: Don’t put all of your golden eggs in one basket, and make sure that ACS Insurance helps with all of your insurance needs.
| Until next month,
“Silly people, serious about insurance.”
