My Vent Today

Post by peterpam on Wed Jun 17, 2009 9:40 pm

is about a very pushy salesman/idiot that phoned me yesterday. Grrrrrr!!!
On Tuesday I received in the mail a prospectous from an investment company, all good but at the time I was in the middle of revamping my shop and put it aside to read when I had time. Yesterday morning I received a call to ask if I had received this and would I be interested, or words to that effect. I explained that yes it had arrived, but due to being so busy, I would not have to time for a couple of days, but if he would like to get back to me then, I would discuss it. Well thats when it all started, he then pointed out that it was only ten pages long. I said yes, I am aware of that, however I did not have the time today to even read that. He then went on to tell me that I must have time to read it when I got home from work, as he said EVERYBODY has 10mins in their evening and he could'nt believe that I didn't. Well if I had 10minutes spare last evening, I would have preferred to play with my grandaughter, not read this bloody thing he had sent me. Anyway he continued, with his unbeilable manner and repeated 3 times, was I not serious about my money. Well by this point I was very serious that I would not be even looking at this damn thing, due to his attitude. I did try to stay pleasant, but when he again said he couldn't believe I didn't have the time that day, I did become very assertive and told him exactly why I didn't, then said thankyou and goodbye and hung up in his ear, whilst might I add he was talking over me. He must have immediately hit the redial button and when I answered he said oh sorry about that, we must have got disconnected. With that, I said NOOOO, as you would be aware, I hung up on you as you were so rude. Then he decided to again talk over me and started suggesting what I should do when someone suggests a good investment. At this point I was ready to give him a few suggestions on what I might like to do to him if he continued, but I didn't, I jst again hung up. He must of again hit the redial, this time I didn't answer. I did take a minute later in the day to check out their last page whilst looking for the ph no. and read, "Please ring one of our freindly consulants", pardon me, freindly I don't think so. I rang the number a couple of times each time getting the answer machine. I did leave a message, saying I would like to speak to one of their freindly managers, not a consultant and left my contact details. Well guess what I haven't heard back. I don't think I have ever had to deal with someone sooo arragant. Vent over

Thats terrible. I hate the way these people can manipulate the vulnerable. Good on you for standing up to him and giving him a piece of your mind.

OMG how annoying and right out blimmin rude! I can think of a lot more better words i would like to use! You dealt with it in the right way and good on you! THey are so push and disrespectful. Id never talk to someone that way!
Hope you dont mind me sharing but I once got cornered by some security company guy who wanted to test my smoke alarms and sell me a new house alarm. I said no thanks. And he said 'are you not interested in protecting your house and your loved ones" God that made me furious so I gave my dogs the signal to bark their heads off and he left quite quickly.

I actually got a friend to ring the police and see if he was for real and he was legit but i HATE the way he spoke to me.

I cant believe your guy had the nerve to keep ringing back! IM glad you dealt to him though! Job well done! Yours not his!

I think you will find that you kept getting the answerphone when you rang them because all their 'friendly consultants' would have been flat out harrassing...I mean soliciting...other people...hahahaha

I realize that a lot of them would earn commissions on sales but that guy was...as claire said...annoying and right out blimmin rude!!!

reminds me of the survey takers who always ring when I am cooking dinner or something...even after saying that I am not interested they push hard for a time to ring back when I wont be busy!!


and claire the image of your dogs barking and that guy tearing off gave me a smile...hehehehe

Thanks guys, he certainly was rude and I am proud of myself that I didn't lose it with him as my temperature was surely rising. Still waiting for my call back from the manager, or maybe he's it, consultant /manager and thats why I haven't heard back. Haha survey takers, yep, they are a tad enoying. Claire, your dogs made me giggle also, but I have a feeling this guy wouldn't be to concerned by them as I'm thinking he probably speaks the same language, he was after all, like a dog with a bone.

Good on you mylife for being able to be assertive, without being rude
I always find that politeness gives you power. We can go away with our heads held high, and I wonder how someone who has to resort to rudeness feels afterward.

Yes I was really quite annoyed (to be 'polite') at the little toad on the other end of the phone.
