    I love this gal!! She's so sweet and so funny. I barely ever remember people from commercials and few last a long time. She's already done like 20 commercials and radio spots. She has such a shining personality I think she deserves her own sitcom. Someone made a weird mash of her spots but it doesn't really do her justice. Here it is. Don't you love it when she gives folks discounts! lol!

    Can't stand this woman....grates on my nerves like fingernails on a chalkboard. I would NEVER buy insurance from this company.

    I can't stand her either, or the commercials which I find dumbly irritating.

    As for the company, I had a bad experience with them as the insurer of the other driver... the one who was at fault.

    Hell would freeze over before I bought Progressive insurance.

    I tend to think she's funny and cool. Tho, you'd find me really desperate to buy Progressive.

    I cannot stand her. I can't even properly put into words why I don't like her, but I just don't. (Though I don't dislike her as much as my mom does; she has to change the channel if one of those commercials comes on.)

    Flo lives in a house made of cookies and she eats small children.

    I can't stand her or the commercials either; I always hit mute. I've had the same insurance since I started driving; I have no intention of ever changing because they have been like a good neighbor.

    She's about as appealing as a lizard. Maybe less so.

    Hmm! We may have a slightly different idea of what is adorable. Not that I dislike lizards. Though my reference was to a competing insurance company in the USA that uses an increasingly annoying gecko with an English accent as its spokes "person".

    Flo is a hoot, but Progressive is a major cut-rate company... steer clear.

    My car was broad-sided earlier this year, and they tried telling me I had NO coverage; when I HAD full coverage.

    First problem was they said I didn't pay my premium. Which, was kind of true, as my check bounced and I got the cancellation notice the next day -- but the cancellation notice was for 30 days -- not TWO. So that was resolved quickly.

    Next was they didn't want to pay the body shop the asking price for labor, which I think was $38/hour -- they only wanted to pay $36/hr and write the difference off to me. I told them to pay the full price as I knew I had full coverage, and aside from paying my deductible, I should have no extra prices to pay, which they did.

    In the end, they paid out everything they were supposed to, but man, it was a NIGHTMARE doing it.

    Not that this was asked for or the REAL point of the post... just an FYI. ;]

    I heard that Flo has recently been indicted in the disappearance of toddlers after police found freshly gnawed finger bones of young children in her glove compartment.

    oh I am so irritated by her. she is about as funny as a terminal disease. I would rather listen to Fran Drescher or Chandler's girlfriend from Friends Laugh for 8 hours solid.

    OR have my large testicles put into a vice and then crushed would be fun compared to watching Flo in action. :)

    Had to give my 2 cents

    Dude, as I mentioned above, we went thru almost the exact same thing. At first they claimed their driver (the one at fault) wasn't covered. When they realized that wouldn't work (after we contacted the driver), they then tried repairing the car with aftermarket or inferior replacement parts, which we wouldn't let 'em do.

    So, fuck Progressive. Though I wouldn't fuck Flo. Not even on a "slo" night.
