Ever experience this with a dealer?
Yesterday I experienced something that I’ve kind of experienced before but not in such a blatant way.
So I was coming back from a doctor’s appointment at the VA and decided to stop at a coin shop along the way that I had never been too before.
I walked in and everything was fine. The shop was a bit bare (low inventory) but the owner was friendly enough.
Anyway he asked what I was interested in and I told him “ancients and pre-WW2 American” and he showed me some stuff he had.
BUT unfortunately he just didn’t have anything I wanted.
He actually got irritable with me and asked why I wasted his time!
I had no intentions of wasting his time. I was totally prepared to pay a fair price for anything he had if I was interested but he just didn’t have much and nothing he had was anything I wanted.
Has anyone experienced this before? Sometimes I feel hesitant to go back to a shop if I didn’t buy something there last time I visited.
I wish there were more friendly dealers who said something like:
“I’m sorry we couldn’t make a deal but please feel free to come back in the future!”
