Buying gas has certainly become quite an adventure for me. Today, as I purchased gas, a man approached me offering to inspect my windshield for free. He asked me if I was satisfied with it. I politely replied that there were some minor cracks in the windshield, but it has stood the test of time for me. He offered to fix the windshield cracks for the bargain price of $40.
Just a couple of weeks ago, at the same gas station, another gentleman asked if he could demonstrate a miracle product that would clean my car for 30, that’s right, 30 days. What was the bargain price on this product? 25 smackers.
I politely declined the windshield repairing service and the cleaning product.
Have we become a nation where bombarding advertisements on every media isn’t enough? Do we really need someone approaching us to sell something when we go somewhere for something else? I know these two events are isolated, but I hope we don’t head in this direction. If I go to the store to buy something, I don’t want 50 people accosting me about buying products or services I don’t even need!
