3.17.17 By Terry O’Grady The GEICO gecko, Mayhem, Flo…the insurance company mascots you love…or hate. The insurance company spokes-folks that really annoy me are not technically mascots, but aggrieved car insurance buyers. The Statue of Liberty is usually in the background. The person describes how they wrapped their car around a tree and now their insurance company raises rates. They sound like they’re blaming the insurance company for their misfortune. Hey, stop texting while driving and it’s a moot point. Annoying.
