As a woman, I have personally experienced salespeople trying to sell me unnecessary products or services because they think I am naive. This has mainly happened to me at the vehicle dealership. I have noticed that when my hubby has been with me, the salespeople do not have the same conversations with me as they do when I am there alone. It is unfortunate that people try to take fortune of others to make more cash, however that is how the world works. This recently happened to a neighbor of mine. Instead of this happening at a vehicle dealership, this happened in her own loft with an Heating, Ventilation and A/C business. My neighbor bought her first loft ever, so there was a learning curve when it came to services and products she needed. Her central A/C started giving her concerns the first summer time that she lived in her house. Her temperature control would read one temperature, however hot air was blowing out of the vents instead of cool air. She did some research and found a local Heating, Ventilation and A/C supplier that seemed to be within her budget. The reviews were not as high as other local Heating, Ventilation and A/C companies, but she had to go with what she could afford at the time. When the Heating, Ventilation and A/C supplier came out to service the issue, he tried to convince her to buy hundreds of dollars of services that she actually did not need. Her gut was telling her that something was off, so she called her bestie. Her bestie has a wonderful expertise of heating and cooling, and he immediately realized that she was being taken fortune of by her local Heating, Ventilation and A/C business.
