I hate buying cars. I like having cars, but I’ve purchased enough of them from dealerships that my blood pressure increases and my heart jumps at the mere thought of dealing with a salesperson, finance director, and their impossible-to-please supervisors.
I’m not exactly an assertive person. When faced with conflict, I tend to back down, and that’s exactly why I’m bothered by car dealerships. I know it’s in my nature to allow myself to be manipulated, which fits nicely with their training to control the transaction.
Not this time. I can always walk off the lot if I’m not happy.
