Cal – Trans Bay Mascot

My high school career counselor once asked me if I had $1 million, what would I do? My first vision involved sitting on a beach, cocktail in hand, doing absolutely nothing. So, instead of encouraging me to go to college, she pushed me to pursue a life of leisure  – and so I did. Here’s the kicker: it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. I got bored fast, which led me to revisit the question. This time I realized I wanted to do what any freakishly handsome man like myself would  to do – greet insurance clients with an offering of treats.


People always ask how I managed to land such a great gig. I’ll be honest, it wasn’t easy. I heard about Trans Bay through the grapevine (and by the way, I can vouch that all the rumors are true – the oversized cigar Indian, the random impersonations, even Santina and Giuseppe. They all exist!) and so I set my sights on Pinole. I have high expectations and even in this economy, I would not settle for anything less than the best in an employer, and Trans Bay’s friendly service, competitive rates, and undeniable integrity fits the bill. Granted, David’s lack of coolness is an issue and Pete’s boy-scout persona is simply exhausting, but deep down I can’t help but have a soft spot for those two, mostly because their faults really highlight my strengths. I don’t want to toot my own horn, but I am pretty witty. You know, I actually tricked David into thinking I was a Halloween decoration just to get in the door. Once I was in, it didn’t take long to win over the office. I proved how much they needed me and I’ve been here ever since.


Sometimes David likes to get festive and dress me up like a doll (he must be fulfilling some childhood void). At any rate, I have fun with it. From Valentine’s Day to Christmas and all the holidays in between, you better believe we celebrate in style. It’s just one way David makes the business of buying and selling insurance fun. Even on those regular days (although, no day is just regular at Trans Bay), you can bet I’ll be here to greet you with a smile and a special treat to thank you for stopping in.
