Okay I need some advice because I just had the rudest experience EVER. And I despise being condescended, especially in situations like this:
So I live in my condo with Fiance, and it’s a predominantly older community. I’m definitely the youngest one here, and Fiance is likely the second at 26.
Like I’ve said in countless other posts, I’m 21- so yes, I am young. But yes, I do own a condo. Not my Fiance, my Fiance and I together.
So this Bell Aliant salesperson comes to my door, and was completely horrendous. So first he asks “Are your parents home?” Ass. I am an adult, I am wearing a pretty large and visible engagement ring, etc. Not that it should matter in the least, but I’m trying to provide a visual.
That caught me off guard, so I was like: “Uh, I own this condo with my fiance. Can I help you?”
And he goe on this sales rant, explaining how I NEED fibre-op. First he tells me “Well for signing up, you get a free 30 inch tv.”
Right, great, not interested. Politely told him so. Instead of letting it go, he goes “Well can I ask why? It’s an amazing deal, and you could probably use a tv for your bedroom.”
Uh, nope, we have a literally 70 inch brand new TV in our living room clearly visible from the door. Politely told him that.
“Well what about your bedroom?”
Nope, I’m still good. I have a 50 inch in there as well. Politely told him that.
So he still keeps prodding, asking how if I have SUCH amazing TV’s, in this sarcastic, “I don’t believe you,” voice- “How can you NOT want the best quality?”
Dude, what part of a 70″ anda a 50″ don’t you understand. My TV is FINE. They’re better than fine, let’s be serious, Salesperson.
So he keeps talking, and I keep responding..yada yada yada. Finally he sighs, and goes:
“Well I’ll just give you my business card and you can give it to the man in the house, or the main bill payer.”
Okay well pardon my language, but what the fuck is that supposed to mean? Are you JOKING ME?
I apologize for the tone of this post and if it sounds juvenile. I normally feel as if I present myself in a more cordial tone. I’m just livid. Literally fuming right now.
I’m going to call Bell and complain. I know he only spoke to me like this because he assumed he COULD. I just don’t know what to say…ugh. I’m bad with wording when I’m upset.
Any advice on handling this would be GREATLY appreciated.
