It is not uncommon for people to break down in tears after getting a notice that their home insurer is dropping them as a customer. In some cases it's tears of frustration that they paid all that money for insurance they never used, or tears of betrayal (I was loyal to them, why did they break up with me - what did I do wrong?). Some people just feel panicked about shopping and the prospect of having to pay more than they can comfortably afford. Some people just get angry.
