What is your reaction to pushy high pressure sales people?
I was recently machinery shopping. One of the sales guys at one dealership was super pushy. First thing he did was try to sell me a machine that costs twice the one I called about. Then he kept trying to push me into buying the unit I had no interest in(It was too big).
My typical reaction to pushy sales people is that I won't do business with them period. I don't need people pushing things on me I don't want and I'll make up my mind myself on my own schedule. I ended up buying from another dealer in this case and got a way better deal anyway.
My wife was being a bit of a smart alack and pointed out that a female sales person could have got me to bought no matter what because men will give them a pass. I don't know if that is true but I suppose she is right I will take more abuse from a female sales person before I walk out.
Question is does everyone handle push high pressure sales people the same as me or am I the odd man out on refusing to deal with them?
