Just learned that the insurance company is screwing my youngest brother, calling him "un-insurable" for a harmless physiological quirk that 5% of the population unknowingly has.

Idiot managment (nearly a redundancy) is the cause of unions.

Evil insurance companies (and that is a redundancy) causes NHS's.

My question is...

Why would he include that information on an insurance application?? Maybe I am not as naive because I used to work for insurance agents but that is just the kind of thing that will get you red flagged. The way to go is to have the agent massage the underwriter and get the policy through.

NHS?

And what is this physiological quirk, if you don't mind me asking?

NHS "National Health System". Nationalized health care.

Still curious

OK, but I'm still curious about this physiological quirk...

Is he one of those rare people who has his organs arranged as a mirror image of how most people are set up?

Wolf Parkinson White

Hey, how was I supposed to know that ANY sort of heart modification will screw you over. Basically, its a heart condition where your infant pacemaker doesn't shut down completely.

The thing is...
and I know, in retrospect, blah blah blah... but man, shoulda just not said ANYTHING about it.

Re: Wolf Parkinson White


I don't think I would have guessed that either. I'm not sure you should be comforted by that, though.
