My husband works for an insurance company. Somehow this causes a truly minor, but really annoying problem. It happened to me twice in the past couple of weeks.
The first time was when I was filling out the paper work at a new doctor's office. The receptionist looked at the forms and said, "This question asks where the primary insurance holder works, not the name of your insurance company."
The second time was in the emergency room last week. The registration clerk corrected me when I told her where my husband works. She said it twice, as if I didn't understand the question. Then, just to really annoy me, she said she had to "verify our insurance before he could be officially admitted." She backed off on that when I said, "HE WORKS FOR THE INSURANCE COMPANY."
Why is it always so surprising when I say he works for an insurance company?
So, here's my public plea for a little common sense. His company owns a big, high profile building in downtown Chicago. Someone has to fill that space.
