The joy of selling is not universal

I tried to change my house insurance the other day. I’m not dissatisfied with my present insurer, but they are getting a bit pricey and so I went on to the comparison sites. The quote was about £100 cheaper than I am currently paying, so I went for it and applied online. I tripped at the occupation question (why do they need to know this?) as I could not find an accurate description in the drop-down menu of the multiple things that I do. “We cannot complete this transaction online. Please call ……. “ which I did. I just got an unhelpful human version of the drop-down menu. The guy was about as interested in selling me house insurance as I am in being a parachutist, which they may have had as an occupation. I love selling things; if you don’t, go and do something else.
