Last night... [Apr. 19th, 2005|01:22 pm]
The Love Bug
Last night was interesting. We were expecting a guy to turn up from Zenith to quote us for a porch. We weren't actively looking, but we had a door-to-door on Friday, offering us a free quotation, so we took it to see what the prices were like. The guy was supposed to arrive at about 19:00, but was only a few minutes late.

He ended up staying until about 21:30.

I was supposed to leave to see my Dad at 20:00!! LOL

Anyway, I got there about 22:15 to sell him Caroline's old iPAQ. He's an old Palm user, so it was quite a shock from his point of view, but he really loved it!

I got back home, £100 richer, at 00:30. I hadn't expected to stay there so long, but he kept asking questions, and it was a gadget, after all! :o)

This post doesn't really go anywhere... brainfarts 'R' us.

Oh my gawd, what a coincidence!! I was just reading one of those women's magazines.. Bella, Take A Break, whatever it was.. and it had a whole story about Zenith Windows and how one of the staff sent cabs, pizza delivery, and all sorts round to someone who didn't answer the door to them. Bloody small world when I come on here and see someone mention them :-)

Don't be too freaked out though, they fired the culprits :)

This post seems circular to me. You travelled away, around and home.

(I wouldn't admit this to anyone else, but I seem to be going cheerfully insane :-D)

Well I'm glad we agree on these points! And hey, at least I'm not going miserably insane, that would be none to special.

:-D

Staying a long time like that is a classic pressure selling technique.
