There is a 7-11 next to my real estate office and very often I'll park there for a second and run in and get a Mt. Dew or something before a meeting. So yesterday on the way to a sales meeting I swing in there and park in front of the convenience store. As I'm getting out I see a display table with all kinds of chit on it as I'm walking in there is a guy in his early 20s coming out of the store with a pepsi dressed like Billy Mays.



He had black hair and looked like he was just kicking off a beard too. haha. Anyway I go in and get my drink and I come back out and Billy was just finishing talking to some guy in a pickup. I need to walk past this guy to get to my car.I think we all see what's coming. I have my sunglasses on and I'm a fairly large guy so I turn on the if you talk to me I'll f**k your day up vibe. Of course he still runs right up to me.

"Sir that is a very nice car you have there."
"Thank you," I say without stopping.
"Black is a very hard color to keep clean I'm sure."
"Uh huh."
"I have this fantastic new product. It is a waterless wash and wax in a can. If I can just spray some on your car." He comes running up with the filthiest looking bathroom towel ever.I stop and look at him like I might throw him through the window to 7-11 if he takes one step closer to my Charger.
"No thanks bud. I don't want you spraying my car with whatever the hell is in that can."
As a salesman I know it's rough getting the door slammed in your face but DO NOT APPROACH MY CAR WITH YOUR SANDPAPER ROUGH, CHIT COVERED, TOILET BOWL CLEANING RAG!!!!!!

End of rant. :rant: :D

I'm glad you scared him away!!!!!

I know the look you probably turned on would have sent me running for the hills!

In all honesty, I've never seen that around here.. That's just creepy.

Yeah I wasn't thrilled Sarah. I should have told him he could spray my car if he was a Charger Forums supporting vendor.

You should have said "I have a fantastic offer for you... How about you stay away from my car and in return your face stays the way it is"

At least it wasn't this guy, wanting to SPRAY your car.


But I'd have to think for a minute if THESE peeps wanted to "SPRAY MY CAR"!

"Thank you but the wax compound I use these days is known to react very badly with other brand materials and can form a corrosive compound."

Basically polite and completely fabricated.

There's no need to be aggressive or rude and if you convince the idiot that the blame and fault are yours, not his, he has nowhere to argue. He can't argue that his product is entirely safe when you're admitting yours isn't.

People have actually come up to you guys trying to spray stuff on your car like the cologne counter at Macy's? Wow. This one was new to me. His two mistakes were that he didn't read my body language and he approached my personal property after he should have known I wasn't interested. I may not have been super friendly but I didn't exactly kick him in the junk either but as someone who has literally had lots of doors closed in his face you know how a person feels about your presence in about 2 seconds or at least you should if you want to successfully sell something. My short answers lack of eye contact and short terse movements should have tipped the guy off long before he busted out "the rag".

It wouldn't surprise me if someone decked this guy by the end of the day. You don't mess with a man's car.
