Wouldnt it be smart to have fire insurance when you live in the middle of the desert with no water or fire department nearby???
Fire Insurance
People selling things house to house chose to do that, people can't choose who knocks on their door though. I'm not saying you deserve it, but if you can't take it then maybe you should get a

different job. One with less social pressure.?
