Her ads used to be kind of funny, like when she inadvertently butted into a married couple's business and the woman gave her a bitchy, cold stare. LOLHer newest ads suck.  When she does an ugly face and growls, I rolled my eyes and cringed. Disapprove I think it's because her older ads used to focus on interaction with customers and helping them save face-to-face, but now, her newer ads focus on just her, like there is one where she is having an interview with herself in the mirror.  Lame.Disapprove

My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

I like the commercials where it's just Flo, and a normal customer. Those were enjoyable, and cute.
 
No they have her idiot male co-workers, the ballless cumsuckers from the 'other insurance company', and an array of over-the-top weird customers that make the whole thing look like it's trying too hard.

I don't recall a time when she was ever funny, but I've learned to never say "she won't get any worse than this", because her ads always manage to define new levels of horrible.

Going down would indicate that she was actually up at some point.

If it's only her in the ads, there's a good chance the ad budget has been cut. Big smile
Has anybody noticed if she's been gaining weight?  If that keeps up, Progressive will probably fire her and we'll soon see a heavy Flo in tampon commercials....

I never liked Flo. I am so hoping they get rid of her soon.

Flo needs to shake things up a bit. Perhaps wear a white minidress and go-go boots.

The one where she ends with "And we're walkin', and we're walkin'" was mildly...amusin'.

Other than that, I have no use for Flo.  It's hard to go DOWN when you've never actually been UP.

To you guys saying that Flo was never UP, look at the quality between the first one with the bitchy wife, and the Flo by herself comercials.  You can see the quality has dipped tremendously from the first one.

That made me chuckle too!! Reminds me of the days when CIH was just a rogue, little-known site on the newly-charted territory of the internet. When there was more anonymity, less chitchat and caustic posts that seethed with hatred Censored
 
As for Flo- she doesn't bother me. Guess I sympathise with her since most of my career has been spent in customer service and/or sales positions. She's enthusiastic w/o being a "balless* cumsucker" (as evident when she sabotaged the "Flobot.")
 
* is that 2 or 3 "Ls"?? Geek
