Liar, liar, Pants On Fire

I hate to tell white lies when I received certain phone calls or text messages. Especially phone calls from insurance agents and direct selling.

I received a text message from my insurance agent telling me that she's going to drop by my place. I thought; oh no! She's going to come and ask me about my confirmation she needed to know about the product that I was about to purchase. I replied and said I was not in town. I told a lie.

Many times, they will call me up for lunch appointments. And while having lunch and nice chit chat, somehow they will introduce the products and out of obliging as friends, I will end up buying or signing some products which I do not need. Which most of the time, I regreted of doing so.

Well, most of the time, I think they are an annoyance, but sometimes I don't know how to say no just not to hurt them.

Ps. Have you come across these type of peoples? How do you declined them?

I always have this phone call selling educational products like maths or english tutoring or computer products and thigns like that.. apparently they got my info from some few years back when I went shopping and sign something to win some prizes (you know how sometimes shopping centres have some promotional thingey?) yeah so I am now being careful giving out my info... anyway the people that was rining me all the time got annoyed that I wouldn't buy their products aor let someone to come to my house to show their computer system or whatever it was, I told them bluntly that I really dont need them, they are nuissance I know.

Yeah, Lindx I totally agreed with you. These people are nuissance. I will avoid them at all costs.

Thanks for your comments, appreciate it.

Can't say I've come across these situations frequently but a firm no or maybe even telling them you don't have extra cash to spare might help. They're just out to make comission.

Saying an honest NO is not bad, just tell them the truth..
