I finally figured out what is wrong with kids these days and where the root of their problem lies.  

It has absolutely nothing to do with peers, schools, or even parenting (Whew! We all got lucky on that one!)

It has everything to do with Christmas. 

That’s right – Christmas has corrupted our children’s minds. Since its Christmastime, all of the old classic Christmas songs are now playing 24/7 on the radio; but have you ever stopped to listen to the words being crooned over the airwaves?

For instance, we tell our children not to talk to strangers, but it’s perfectly acceptable to go off and run downtown with a guy named Frosty because he’s going to melt away?  Really? And we’re worried about kids not being realistic and what about possible drug use?  Who melts anyway?  Ok, other than the Wicked Witch of the West, but that’s another season altogether.

Now let’s talk about children’s attitudes and their demanding demeanors. The other song I heard went something like this: “Now bring us some figgy pudding, now bring us some figgy pudding (like we didn’t hear it the first time) followed by: “We won’t go until we get some, we won’t go until we get some.”  Lord knows we have to do the repeat-thing when it’s time to clean the bathroom, but pudding? And what is figgy pudding, anyway?  Sounds like it might be the fruitcake’s cousin.

Speaking of insurance…no, the above has absolutely nothing to do with insurance – except the fact that when you call our office for that life and health quote, we won’t demand anything of you, although we are over 40, which means we have a tendency to repeat things.  Which means we have a tendency to repeat things (see?)

This month’s made-in-Nevada winner is Becky and Mike Contos.  Becky & Mike have already known the benefits of ACS Insurance, but added another policy which is how they were entered in the drawing.  Don’t forget to refer someone to ACS, call for a quote, or like us on Facebook and you’ll be entered as well.

In all sincerity, the folks at ACS Insurance hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Until next month,

“Silly people, serious about insurance.”

(Who used to want a man who would take her breath away and buy her things for Christmas; now only wants a man who is breathing and can fix things.)
