Still on the virus and dead things theme, I’ve had an unusual number of nuisance phone calls in the past week, trying to sell me life insurance. Should I be concerned?
I’m as insured as I want to be, thanks, and I don’t care how much anyone offers me over and above what I have, and at what kind of great deal. “Oh, you can never have too much life insurance. Wouldn’t you feel badly if you left your loved ones in a position where they had to struggle?”
a) I’ll be dead, so no, I won’t feel badly, or otherwise, about much of anything.
b) Yes, you can have too much life insurance. If you’re worth far more dead than alive, it’s probably not a good thing. No matter how much your nearest and dearest say they love you.
