My Email Exchange With State Farm About Jake. Jake From State Farm.

jakefromstatefarm

With Halloween around the corner(ish) there’s been an ample amount of conversation about costumes with my kids. My 4 year old has adamantly decided that she wants to be Jake, Jake from State Farm this year—not a princess, ballerina or Frozen character. She wants to be Jake wearing khakis and a red State Farm polo (this gives all of you a little insight into my daily life). And to get into character she now has us calling her Jake throughout the day. It’s going to be a loooong 6 weeks until Halloween.

Of course, I love how independent and clever my baby girl is and will do anything to support her dream of becoming Jake. So yesterday I did what any mom would do and I went straight to the source. The following email exchange occurred between State Farm and myself. You can’t make this stuff up.

Hi,

My hilarious 4-year-old daughter wants to be “Jake from State Farm” for Halloween. I can’t find any red State Farm Polos for kids on your website. Is this something I can order? Thanks!

Hello,

I’m sorry that we do not carry children’s polos on the site.  We could get it through a special order but there are minimum quantity requirements for special orders.  If this is something you are interested in, please let me know and I can forward your e-mail on.

Thanks for responding. We only need one though. Do you sell iron-on logos by any chance?


No, we don’t.  I’m sorry.

Sarah

 

Do any of you out there have any ideas?

Red polo shirt is a must

And of course she’ll need khakis

    Go to a local State Farm office with your daughter in tow, and ask them if anyone has an old polo that they would donate to your cause. Carefully cut the logo out and iron-on it to a plain red polo. It might work well enough for one day’s wearing. I hope she doesn’t plan to stay up til 3:00 in the morning! Good luck.

    I cannot believe that State Farm Insurance would not be more accommodating. The person writing the email could not have consulted the higher ups. They missed a good opportunity for PR. The suggestion for a visit to a local SF office was a good one.

    How about getting on of those plastic ID bar pins (like they sell at
    mynamebadges.com–no affiliation) engraved with
    STATE FARM
    JAKE

    on it? It would only cost a few dollars, would look official, and might clue some of the adults in to exactly what her costume is.

    Here’s hoping she doesn’t change her mind before the big day!

    My boyfriend is going as Jake for Halloween (I’m going as the “she sounds hideous wife” – wearing robe and pj’s). We grabbed a red polo from a discount store and some iron on letters from a craft store.
