Sucks to deal with buyers.

That's why salesmen get paid a commission. Sometimes it is actually worth it.

You would have loved selling new Apaches, Cigarettes and Fountains at Everglades!
Some guys were so full of crap just to waste my time!
If a guy was honest enough to just tell me: "Look, I can't afford one of these boats and I probably never will, but if I could just have the thrill of a short ride it would make my vacation.". If there was a boat ready to go in the water, 99% of the time I took them unless I was busy with a real customer.

Once a "buyer" showed-up for a demo ride with his whole family, a loaded cooler and water skis!

Yes, but you must remember I was WORKING! Trying to sell a boat, make a commission and keep the bill collectors away.

We have no pleasant lake here, just 15 minutes of no-wake zone and the Atlantic Ocean.

I can keep you entertained for days with true stories like that. People are really funny sometimes.

When ever I'm buying something, I never throw out a price. I always ask the seller what is their bottom line. If that isnt what I have alloted to pay, I'll ask if that is the best they can do, it either is or isnt. Only then will I talk about my numbers, but I will first preface it with, I dont want to insult you, however this is what it is worth to me. Every one loves to save money and make money. If you have done your homework then you should know what you are willing to pay, and what the car/boat is worth.
What frosts me is when people call me and ask for my product and then proceed to tell me they can buy it online for a third of what I charge installed. I tell them of course you can, they are paying for my expertise and warranty. I had one guy tell me that and then I saw him at a Porsche meeting, he had gone to a competitor and he had the huevos to ask me what I thought of the job the competitor had done on his car,he was very smug about it too... I grinned patted him on the shoulder and said you got what ya paid for and walked away. He later asked me what was wrong with it, but I just said doesnt matter its done, have a nice day.
doesnt have to be an advisarial thing, just agree on a price. I have found the cheapest ones normally wind up being the worst customers, never satisfied.
