Local Man Desperately Begins Filling Out 9th Online Car Insurance Quote


ALBERT Einstein once defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting a different result”.

This definition is currently lost on Waterford native Francis Jones, who is in the process of filling out his 9th online car insurance quote application, somehow still in the belief that he’ll get a price of less than 900 euro this time.

“Name, age, driving history, car type… I could do it in my sleep at this stage,” said Jones, who has 12 years of no-claims bonuses that appear to be worth fuck all these days.

“If only there was some way of copying and pasting all your details from one site to the next… as it is, each form takes about 15 minutes to fill, followed by an hour of banging my head off the desk in frustration”.

Despite the fact that many of the sites he’s using are cost-comparing brokerage houses that shop around at the same insurance companies, Jones holds out hope that he’ll land on one that is somehow mysteriously 300 euro cheaper than the last one.

“There’s gotta be one site out there… I can’t have tried them all,” sobbed the 35-year-old.

“If I could even get one that was the same price as I paid last year… I’m not asking for much, surely?”
