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?
