Hi everyone, I have a question. I'm just wondering if any of you had ever felt being bullied into buying something? It could be anything from a house to a car, or a toy or a piece of apparel? By bullying I mean really bullying, basically with the salesperson saying that you're obligated to buy the item in question regardless? If so, what was your story and how did you resolve it? I'll share mine here ... except mine is far from resolved. I am NOT going to mention what it is or what brand it is since I don't want to get in further trouble or be threatened ... Months ago I thought of getting something and upon inquiring about the specs, I found that the item was not for me. The store manager asked if I want it in a smaller size, I said that might work. So she said she'd have someone send me specs on that size with pictures and then they would take down my CC# and info after I have confirmed. I never heard back from them and then 3 weeks ago I got an email from one of the sales telling me that the item was ready and they needed me to pay for it . I was a bit taken back because there was never a confirmation, never an email with the specs or pictures and such, therefore I assume that they couldn't go through with it. But, I gave them the CC# info anyway because I figure it would still be a nice thing to have even though the it may be a bit big for me (I have since then found out the specs from other people who own the same thing). I figure worst case scenario I sell and recoup some money. Then last week, my sister got into a car accident. A day later, a relative oversea went into the hospital and needed to go under the knife. The surgery went okay but the bills are exorbitant. To top that off, someone stole my wallet around that same time. Regarding the wallet, I found out after canceling my cards that one of the cards had a mysterious $7000+ charge on it for electronics. I called up that credit card company and they DOUBTED my dispute, saying that since I have been known to make huge purchases on that card (I buy Hermes with that card), they think the charge was legit ! Still trying to iron that out right now. So in short, I absolutely CANNOT go though with ANY purchases until the end of the year. By the end of this year YES but not now (although with the way I'm being treated I would NEVER buy from them again). I mean, my family should take precedence. I told the sales I couldn't go through with the transaction and she started guilt-tripping me. She said mine was a special order just for me and that it was the only one available ever - I know it was not true because I've seen the same thing in at least two other places. Even after telling her the reasons that I couldn't do it (which I don't believe I should even explain myself because that's my own business), she said that I was under the obligation to buy and that she was surprised that I didn't get charged first. She said I should know how this works since I buy Hermes . Now on top of all the crap I have going on, i have to worry about getting into trouble with a store for something beyond my control ... And what gets me is the person is guilt-tripping me even though I KNOW I have not been told the truth about everything. I mean, the item cannot be one-of-a-kind if at least 2 other places have it. So has anyone ever been in such a situation? If so, what is it regarding? How did you resolve it?
