I thought the TV ads were stupid and annoying... I am now boycotting two radio stations now for playing this extremely stupid and annoying commercial over and over. Its a lady speaking with a stupid robotic voice lady mimicking the other lady, and the "funniest" part is when the lady asks the robot voice if its mimicing her and the voice says "kinda".

Who gets paid to think of this garbage?

I to am unemployed, and have a hard time occupying my time as i wait for the phone to wring. Some times when I'm streaming movies I see the same commercial 7 times in one sitting. I'm glad that I've found ways to mute the sound on my computer. I also find that it's a great time to use the restroom, or even pop some popcorn.

Drunken rants from the unemployed are a major part of how the internet works. Welcome Noob.

She a strange way I can't currently comprehend...

It is pretty decent insurance though. Dirt cheap, and responsive. I've had nothing but good experiences with them over the years. Geico, on the other hand...can suck my ($*%(*%$ When I got married, they said there'd be a fee for them to re-evaluate the policy and then renew. So, they take this fee, then say, nope...sorry. WTF? Screw them, and their lizard! Been with Progressive ever since.

Star and flag, friend. I love Flo, don't get me wrong here, but Progressive Insurance is a joke, and here is why I think this. I had a 1967 Malibu coupe. All Super Sport equipment, 396/325 engine, 12 bolt posi rear end, traction bars, headers, chromed out engine, bucket seats, 4 speed Borg-Warner trans. This was a smoking car, and I took it down to my insurance agent, who took photos of it, the engine compartment, interior, front and rear, and both sides. I signed for a $5000 policy. I paid the premiums on it for two years, then one icy night she slid off the rad and hit a bridge, hard. The right side fender, door and grille, headlight assemblies, and hood were crushed. I called the company and next day the adjuster came out. He looked the car over, then handed me a check for $1875, the price of the car when brand new. After fighting with them for two weeks, I took the money and kept the car. Fixed it up and gave it to my daughter for her 16th birthday. She had a mild 350 automatic in her then. Progressive screwed me!

You guys are lucky. I live in a province where we only have 1 insurance company. You get funny commercials with Flo and the nationality-ambiguous gecko. Though my all time favourites are the ones with the guy playing "Mayhem" like a teenage girl or an outdated GPS.

I'm 38 and I've dated a lot of chicks... i think the thing that draws men to "Flo" is her confident demeanor... she's witty, fun to be around and just crazy enough to keep you on your toes.

Not a whole lotta cool chicks out there like that, relatively speaking!

(BTW, i have Progressive and they aren't cheap at all. They really kinda suck... they're like the Wal-Mart of insurance, but without the everyday low prices.)

I think it's just that we know she'd be a freak in the sheets...

Sorry to hear about some folks' bad experiences though.... Older cars and payouts suck. My wife totaled an 89 Camaro RS (that we'd restored, etc.), and yeah, we didn't get too much for it either.

well I do work full-time appreciatively, not that I wouldnt want to be an unemployed drunk or anything. Just saying.
So her name is Flo then? She is cute I agree but I think the product that is being sold detracts from her greatly.
She would be much more enjoyable in an erectile dysfunction ad, maybe she doesn't fit the age group though.

I use Nationwide, wich has since jumped on the annoying commercial bandwagon. What makes it nice for me is the secratary is a family friend so late payments are non-exsistent.
