Buying Anything

We need a new vehicle. We know this. We've been shopping around. Comparing prices, locations, etc.

You know what really really grates my cheese?

When someone advertises a price, but then adds a few hundred extra to that number when you contact them.

I'm obviously contacting you because I might be interested in the vehicle you're selling, which I'm assuming is priced accordingly to what it would be worth with a bit extra so your wife can get that new couch. I'm not expecting you to counter me with a number HIGHER then your asking price.

This is not an Auction. If it was where's the guy who entertains me with his unbelievable fast speaking word meshing abilities?

Be honest and up front with me BEFORE I ask.

That's all.


  1. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRrr. That would bug me, too. Look at it this way: God was keeping you from a piece of junk car.

  2. I like Janet's way of looking at it!

    When the price changed, you knew it was a bad buy without even needing to check out the vehicle :)

    I have no time for slimy salespeople.
