Alyssa Stringfellow confided to her friends about a hilarious mistake she made during a car insurance application but the blunder soon went viral with more than 100,000 shares on Facebook.
Applying to be insured on her grandmother’s car insurance policy, the insurance company required her to submit front and side profile photographs before the insurance could be finalised.
In response, Alyssa sent front and side photographs of herself through to the insurer but was horrified the next day to find she had misunderstood the request when the insurer contacted her back via email.
It said: “Hi Alyssa, I am going to need pictures like you took, except it needs to be of your vehicle.”
Her grandmother also texted her: “Alyssa Racheal, did you send him pictures of YOURSELF?! It was supposed to be of your car!”
In a Facebook post, Alyssa said: “Needless to say, I was ridiculously embarrassed and everyone at work had a good laugh at my obvious misinterpretation.”
Alyssa explained: “I decided to add myself to Carolyn’s car and the insurance company rang her with the details I needed and their email address.
“This included my driver’s license number, my date of birth, and a picture straight on and a picture taken from each side.
“I emailed the information along with the pictures that night but I woke up to them asking for the same photos but for the car.
“He’d told my grandma on the phone that he and his entire office were in hysterics at my obvious misunderstanding.
“It was such a blonde moment but it has given so many people a laugh that I don’t care anymore.”
