It might be dull and boring, but it is indeed a new post. *Smiles*
Tonight we had two window salespeople come over and give their little pitch. We know we need to replace our windows, and we'd like to have a ballpark figure so we can know how much money to save up.
So. Two and a half hours later, we still didn't have a definitive price. Very frustrating. They did their little demo on how heat escapes through windows (yes, with frost on the inside of our windows last winter, we were quite aware we have much heat escaping our house!)
I think they took so long because they want to make sure we don't get a quote from anyone else. You know, if we figure all window salespeople will take so long, we for sure won't want to get any more quotes! LOL
And they also didn't want to give us prices on individual windows. What we'd like to do is replace a few at a time, not all at once.
Anyhow, any sales stories to tell?
I remember one guy who came to our house when I was young. My mom answered the door, and he pushed his way into the house and started spraying his miracle spray on a spot on the floor. My mom, in order to get him out of the house, told him that my dad would have to make the decision. So he came out to the garden and talked to my dad for quite a lo-o-o-ng time. And he didn't make a sale. If I remember right, it took my dad walking him out to his car to get rid of him.
Now, please don't be mistaken; I have nothing against salespeople. I could never work in sales, because that just isn't me. But when shopping, I greatly appreciate a knowledgeable sales rep to help answer questions and help me get the most for my money!
