It is standard practice to be asked to provide personal details when arranging car insurance. So when a Ms Alyssa Stringfellow from North Little Rock, Arkansas was asked for “my driver’s license number, my date of birth, and a picture straight on and a picture taken from each side” she thought nothing of it and gladly obliged. “I emailed the information along with the pictures that night,” added the 25 year old. Little did she know that her email was the cause of considerable laughter among staff at the insurance company. For Ms Stringfellow had incorrectly assumed that when the insurers had asked for a “picture straight on and a picture taken from each side” that they wanted images of her and not those of the Kia Forte she was seeking insurance for. The special needs teacher said: “I was insuring myself on my grandmother’s car insurance when I decided to pose for the photos. The guy from the insurance company rang laughing his head off after he received my email. I was totally embarrassed and mortified that his entire office had seen my photos. I did think it was strange that he wanted photos of me but I just thought he must need them to identify who I was. My grandmother Carolyn was like, ‘he’s insuring the car not you'”, she added. “He’d told my grandma on the phone (who I call memaw) that he and his entire office were in hysterics at my obvious misunderstanding. It was such a blonde moment but it has given so many people a laugh that I don’t care anymore.” How many people? Around 10,000, at least that is the number of times Ms Stringfellow’s post has been shared on Facebook.
