Imagine a conversation between the two eras 1960 and 2018 on buying insurance!
1980 and 2018 meet at a restaurant where they decide the list of tasks they need to do.
The list includes paying bills, buying groceries, buying clothes and even buying insurance.
1960 “These are too many things. I don’t think I will be able to manage it within 24 hours. I have to go to the market, then stand in long queues to pay my bills, then decide what to buy and shop for a family get together and after which the next task is almost impossible because to buy a life insurance plan I have to get in touch with my agent. ”
2018 “ I think all of these can be fairly done. I have already purchased groceries and clothes, now I’m paying a few bills, post that I will buy a life insurance plan.”
1960 “ I’m very sure that buying a life insurance plan is a very tedious task that will require ample of time because you will need to visit an agent, he will help you evaluate all policies and then choose the right one for you.”
2018 “ No, I can buy a life insurance plan in the next one hour instantly and then do my other important work which is pending for the rest of the day. I don’t need an agent.”
1960 “How is that possible?”
2018 “I understand that you are from an earlier era but now that you have met 2018 i.e. me you can be rest assured that everything can be purchased online conveniently. That also includes life insurance!”
