DH and I were car shopping today and ended up test driving a car with DH driving, me in the front passenger seat, and Car Salesman (CS) in the backseat. His breath was so horrible that it was giving me a headache and making me nauseous. I had the air turned up, circulating outside air, and every time he would open his mouth, the stench would make me almost gag. DH is super laid back about everything and even he was saying he kept smelling this horrible smell and it took him a bit to connect the source of it but boy was it foul.
CS was basically pretty nice, not super pushy as salesmen can be, and we found him to be less offensive than other salesmen we saw today, other than the breath, but because we will likely be returning to this dealership to continue checking out the cars, is there a polite way to request someone else? Hopefully he won't be there next time we come, won't recognize us, but as DH and I sort of stand out as a couple (we are different ethnicities in a very conservative town), I'm not holding out much hope he won't recognize us when we come back.
Would it be better for one of us to go alone to scope out a different salesman, and then come together and request the new name? But then if the new person isn't there, and CS is, we're in the same dilemma: how can we politely request someone else?
