There was an apartment fire in a complex about half a mile from my house last night. 10 families were burned out of their homes, and according to the Red Cross none of them have renters’ insurance.
At the risk of looking like I’m blaming the victim I have to implore all apartment dwellers everywhere to get renters’ insurance. For no more than the cost of a delivered pizza each month you can have the peace of mind of knowing that if your idiot neighbor in 12-B uses a space heater with frayed wiring you yourself will not be destitute.
I lived in an apartment for 9 years. I know that sometimes that $10-$20 a month can be hard to find, but I promise you’ll sleep better knowing you’ve got it.
And no, I don’t work for an insurance company.
