They know (or think they know) where and when you are vulnerable.
The day after my house was burglarized, I started getting calls from the alarm companies. I was still shaken and quite emotional about the whole thing – exactly what they’d counted on. What they didn’t count on was my anger at being descended upon by the opportunistic assholes. Of all the calls, more than half were arrogant and patronizing assholes. No sale.
Death in the family. Visit to mortuary to select casket. The first showroom is the guilt room - the top of the line stuff. Big, big $$$$$$$$. It’s going 6 feet under! My dining room table doesn’t have wood that nice!
Any other experiences along these lines?
Some people know a lot more when you tell them something than when you ask them something.
