When someone says "If something happens to you" in a life insurance commercial, they speak in an upbeat, reassuring, CPR-training video voice. Life or death matters typically don't trigger such a voice in reality. They speak in circles, not

"If something bad occurs..."

"If you die unexpectedly..."

"If an ostrich with diabolical plans breaks free from the zoo and wreaks vengeance on the nearest civilian..."

 

No. "If something happens  to you." People are so scared of death, they'll do anything not to mention it, even in a life insurance commercial, which has everything to do with death. Your children generally aren't going to be handed your $50 thousand because "something" just happened to have occured.

 

This society is so in denial that insurance collectors must convince themselves that money grows off trees.

 

Sure. Trees in the cemeteries.
