Have you ever gone to buy something and it seems like all the forces of the world are against you? I’m talking about walking into a store with money in hand, and yet the staff seems to do everything in their power NOT to help you? I know that sounds pretty ridiculous, but this is something that I observe all the time. And to make matters worse, I can think of a lot of other people that have brought it up as well!
Why is this?? When I’m about to make a relatively huge purchase, shouldn’t there be a little more eagerness to work with me? Or are employees really just that apathetic?
Here is an actual example that will illustrate my point. It took place last week when I went to buy some flagstone pavers for my gardens. To set the stage, I was all set to buy the stones from one place when I decided last minute to call the one in this story to see if I could get a better deal. They did in fact have a much better price and I ultimately I ended up buying from them. But as you will see, there were some minor struggles to get them to sell to me. Please read this story lightly and enjoy!
