Geico Insurance

As a mom, I have many delightful moments in my life. I can think of three right of the top of my head. The birth of my three boys mostly because if I had to walk one more minute on this earth like a beached whale about ready to pop, I think I might have freaked out. C’mon those of you who have been pregnant totally know what I was talking about. Then the second after your child is born and you hold him in your arms is so HUGE that none of what you went through matters. You are utterly delighted with the gift of life in your arms.

But, that delightful moment was a given. Same with your marriage or proposal. My husband proposed to me through my son’s ultrasound. How cool is that? When we were at the doctor’s office to find out the sex of my son, he had coordinated with the ultrasound tech to propose to me on the screen. She had me turn away from the screen for a supposed test while she typed in will you marry me onto the screen. Then she had me turn around to see the sex of my son, and I saw the screen. My husband was down on one knee with a ring in hand. Imagine my delight!

Another delight is much tamer than the ones I described above, but it honestly moves me when it happens because these days it is so rare. I am talking about good customer service. So many companies these days do not give it, trust me! I was in a car accident with my son many, many years ago. I hit a train. Yeah, yeah I know…but I didn’t see it. This was 15 years ago and I had just switched my insurance over to Geico. Needless, to say I was freaking out. I didn’t know what to do. I was 23, and my car was totaled. As you can imagine I was on the phone with Geico a lot. Not once did they make me feel stupid for hitting a train (when I totally would have) or looked down on me for being a young mother. They even helped me find alternatives on what to do with my car. I ended up getting it fixed, only two weeks after I got it back I rear-ended a Bronco and totaled it again. (I swear I am a much better driver now!) Can you believe they were just as nice the second time around? Now, that I am married (and it is 18 years later), I have stuck with Geico. My husband has actually been with them for over 20 years. We have had our businesses, trucks, cars, equipment, and are currently looking into our life insurance. So what delightful moments do you recall in your life?
