Eric The Intern – “There Are No Stupid Questions”

Hi! My name is Eric. I’m an intern.

I am the newest employee at McDougall Insurance and oh boy am I ever excited! I get to work for a great firm alongside my wonderful boss, Mr. McKinney. He is so smart and knowledgeable when it comes to insurance. But he is busy, doing uhh… I am not really sure what he does, but I imagine it must be really important boss stuff. So it is my job to answer any of the insurance related questions we receive and if I need help I can ask him. Most of the time he gives me the answer, but sometimes he plays a prank on me, we are such great friends! And the best part is you get to decide if he answers me or punishes me!

Insurance is confusing. This interactive series, the first of its kind, is meant to unlock your questions. Ask away! There are no stupid questions.
