a counter for the business strategy where the price remains hidden until the 'hook is set'. there IS a school which believes, "if you have to know the price you can't afford it"
this attitude strongly PISSES ME OFF!!, i am of the school which believes the product may not be worth the price to ME!!, despite what someone says, OR their sales approach!
it is very comforting to know the price when beginning any transaction! I HATE the clumsy human interaction of taking the 'bait' only to have to 'back out', because the item simply is not worth that much to me! -or maybe i don't have 'money to burn' that particular day!!!
-its' very nice to know if one can or cannot 'play in that league' or not!
car dealers in particular, LOVE to do this shit!!
the salesman wouldn't ballpark me, so i took a walk!
i asked for a ballpark price, but received a strange look!
the hot shit restaurant wouldn't post their fees outside, effectively non-ballparking people!
