What Not to Say to a Car Salesman
After listing everything from the "Top 10 Summertime Toys" to "10 Cars that Could Get a Computer Geek Laid" (not really), Forbes gives us the "Top 10 Things To Never Say To A Dealer." At the risk of denying Forbes a couple of dozen unique visitors, the eds say these words should never pass through a car buyer's lips: I'm ready to buy (ka-ching!), I can afford this much (over twelve years then), Yes, I have a trade in (let the games begin!), I'm paying cash (we HATE you), I'm not sure what vehicle I want (we know EXACTLY what we want to sell), I've wanted on of these forever (SUCKER), I'll take the popular options (yum!), What's the lowest price? (and we can't go ANY lower), Sure I'll look at the numbers (step into my parlor said the spider to the fly), I think you can do better than that (**** you!). Forbes doesn't say what you should say to car dealer. We'll start the bidding with "Stiff me and I'll kill you."
