Avoiding Grogeous Sales Men
One of the things I have taught myself is never to be seduced by an attractive salesman. There is something about good looking sales men that I find it difficult to refuse to pay for something when the sales man asks me to.
I remember losing several thousand bucks for purchases I have never thought of. In two different instances, I was approached by two good looking real estate agents offering two diferent condominium units. In both instances they successfully convinced me to pay Php25,000 each for the reservation of condo units. After a month or two, I realized I don't to be financially committed for something I'm not very much into. In the end, both of my payments got forfeited.
When I was in college, a gorgeous guy used to sell peanuts inside SM Sta. Mesa. I would purchase from him just so I could stare at his lovely eyes. It came to a point that he knew I was deeply attracted to him that everytime I came, he would ask an extra Php50 from me ("pamasehe lang pauwi"). And I didn't mind letting go of my money.
Just yeterday, I was walking along Trinoma. I saw the Viktor Jeans shop. And inside the shop was a muscled, gorgeous guy working as a sales man. I was about to enter when I realized there is no way I'll be able to refuse this guy. And purchasing a pair of jeans for about Php10,000 was not in my budget at the moment. So even if my credit card was willing to make this guy happy, with all my will, I refused to step inside the shop and ran straight to my gym.
Now, I'm learning.
PS I'm dating a good looking sales manager now. And thank god he has never tried selling anything to me.
