So I bought another digital camera in the last PC show.
It is totally an unnecessary purchase. Well, only to satisfy my own vanity, and from that standpoint, it may actually be necessary. What I did not expect is to be told, after making the payment, that the ordered&confirmed color-of-my-choice is no longer available.
The fact that I made up my mind in 1/4 of the time I would normally take to decide on any purchases above $50 hinted that I would not take it lying down.
I wonder: Do sales people find it empowering to psyche customers out of what they have already paid for?
