Extra Extra Painful

| Working | December 10, 2015

(I am with a car salesmen.)

Salesman: *tapping away* “So, what do you do for a living?

Me: “Oh, I’m in sales.”

Salesman: “Oh, really?! So all this is pretty common to you?”

Me: *half joking* “Yeah, none of your tricks are going to work on me, I’m afraid.”

Salesman: *smiles* “Ok, so we have the monthly payment here.”

Me: “Great, so can you show me what it is without any options and extras.”

Salesman: “I… err… yes, okay.” *starts typing*

Salesman: “But you should really consider the scratch resistant paint.”

Me: “Okay, well, let’s look at the original figure and go from there.”

Salesman: “Should I add on the stain guard protection?! Yes, I will do that; it is only £3 a day!”

Me: “Err, no, thanks. Just the basic figure. We can talk add-ons from there.”

Salesman: “Well, I will put the dent warranty on and there you go!”

Me: *frustrated* “Fine, okay, I will take that away with me.”

Salesman: *as I’m rushing out of the door* “Hey, wait you forgot to take my card!”

(Needless to say, I didn’t return. Across town I found another dealership. After explaining the pain the first guy was, he didn’t push or try to trick me into any hidden extra charges and gave me a great deal. I agreed to the sale there and then.)
