<<I have to interject here. We are bad-mouthing the bank rep without the whole story.
I will be the first to admit that annuities only fit a very small number of client>>

<<In my job, we are taught not to stick someone into a prodcu just because they can afford it. I am trying to build clients for life. If I wanted the quick buck I would have pursued car sales.>>

To be fair to car salesmen, I haven't heard of them chasing down senior citizens driving Cadillacs and trying to lease them a Lexus.
