Thanks, but no thanks
Not everyone can be a salesman. It’s not easy to convince people to part with their hard earned money, no matter what P.T. Barnum said.
If it was easy to get people to buy things, Alec Baldwin wouldn’t have gotten himself all worked up into a lather. Still, there’s such a thing as going too far and plenty of people have found themselves on the wrong side of an attempted deal, being hassled to the point that they just left the negotiation.
Check out some of the worst salesman tactics ever encountered, thanks to the good folks at Reddit.
You’re How Old?
We went to buy an engagement ring and the salesman looked at me right when we walked in the door and said, “We don’t sell children’s rings here.” I was 27 at the time, and yes, petite. We went elsewhere. (AKLawrence)
I went with my wife to buy a car. The salesman said that another couple were also looking to buy it, but he would prefer us to have it because they were homosexuals. He even said “homosexuals” in that stereotypical gay voice and went limp-wristed.
I hope those guys are happy with their car(MisterEvilBreakfast)
Told a car salesman that I wanted my wife to look at the car so I would be coming back. He went and got the sales manager, who proceeded to sit down across from me and say the words I won’t forget.
“Let me ask you a question…..who’s money is it, yours or hers?”
I looked at him in shock and politely stood up and left. Never been so stunned by a salesman before or since. (goofy1771)
