Ah well.  You live and you learn, eh?

I would post your experience on Yelp or another review website.  You definitely got ripped off.

DH & I have always paid cash for our cars. We have never incurred a "penalty" for paying up front.  If a dealer ever tries that on me, no matter how much DH gushes over the car, we're walking.

Most dealerships are smart enough to describe that as "cash off if you finance through us!" but to show it as an extra charge for a cash purchase is just dumb.  I agree that I'd walk too.  Truth be told, I'd have done so even if my kid fell in love with it, because it's a good lesson in buying with your head, not your heart.

I can't tell you how many times I've complained to management at hardware stores when salespeople have been dismissive of me when I was attempting to purchase tools and other supplies.  It's one of my life's greatest aggravations.

I hate going to BigBoxHomeImprovement store by the house. I'm a 27yo female with 3 little kids along for the ride. I can't tell you how many times I've been helpfully redirected to the gardening/nursery section to look at pretty flowers. Or I've been told that if my husband has any problems with that drill/saw/garbage disposal, he can bring it back and exchange it.

DH and I are currently looking at houses - not buying yet, but getting a feel for the market. I've noticed that the male real estate agents talk to DH and the female ones talk to me.

Are they venemous? Do they like being petted? If the answers are no and yes, (in that order, please) I think I know what my next "purse puppy" is gonna be....
