My Daughters Are NOT Allowed To Date
A reader of this site that works at a car dealership as a NON-salesperson wrote this very interesting
email to us...
"I LOVE your website. I've worked in the car business for years in the general office.
Because of all that I've heard and observed over the years - I have acquired quite an education. To the point that
I have forbidden my daughters to ever date car salesmen. And they've heard enough horror stories over the years
that makes the thought of dating one very unappealing. People think I'm exaggerating when I tell them what they're
up against when they go into a dealership. I just get sick when I see the deals they've signed to. People don't
realize that this business is a psychological game of "win and lose" and guess who loses? Maybe I haven't read
enough on your site yet, but a couple of terms I didn't see are "third baseman" and "roach". I am convinced that to
be a car salesman (or woman) you have to sell your soul. It definitely attracts a certain kind of person. And if
you aren't that kind of person when you go in, it will eventually become who you are. And I have watched as their
games bleed over into their personal lives. There's no business like the car business and I don't mean that in a
good way. I'm getting so I can instantly spot these guys away from work too. Again, thank you for a fabulous
website. It is a valuable learning tool. You've done a GREAT job with this site and I'll be telling everyone I know
YIKES! And thats coming from someone working right there in the belly of the beast! Thank you!
