Need a Reason to have a Burger?

Life Insurance

Today the PivotCare Team celebrated National Cheeseburger Day (September 18th). We went big – I’m not talking about run-of-the-mill fast food burgers – we went with half-pound, grease dripping monsters… with fries AND rings! There wasn’t an open artery in sight. It was glorious!

Here are three reasons why we love the burger so much… who doesn’t?!

They are versatile

Do you prefer beef, turkey or veggie burgers? And aside from the generic lettuce, onion and tomato, the toppings are limitless. You name it and I can assure you someone has tried to stuff it on top of a patty. Want a side of fries or rings… sure just throw those on the burger too!

Fit anyone’s budget

When I was in college, I lived on fast food burgers. Not only did I never have enough time to eat with such a hectic schedule, but obviously my budget was tight as well. You can’t get much these days for a dollar, but there is always the trusty dollar menus at the fast food joints.

For those not stuck on a student’s budget, there is always one of those fancy burgers you read about. For a couple hundred bucks you can get a burger topped with truffles, caviar and a gold leaf encrusted bun.  Personally, I think whoever created this thing missed the point. 

It’s a treat

This should be the only reason you need.  It’s a treat, and it should be enjoyed free and clear of guilt, judgment or alarm towards what it will potentially do to your health. Just take our advise, don’t have one of these before your life insurance medical exam!
