Had a guy show up this morning, wants to sell me new windows. Wife wasn't around when they got here 40 minutes EARLY for the appointment. I questioned it when his cost for the bay window sounded like about TWICE what it should be. His response -- you guessed it - "you get what you pay for". PRESSED on him a bit, (I'm actually pretty good at asking questions that get to the heart of the matter) and it turns out that he's including the price of a building permit (city's "cut") in EACH window. So not based on city code, but more of a "add $200 to each window" mentality. So I'm clearly NOT "getting what I paid for" if I'm paying for a separate permit for each window (that's not how that works, and I guess he's used to people who don't know that). I asked if that meant if I give you something for FREE, does that then make it WORTHLESS? I mean, if it has no price tag, and you "get what you pay for", then PAYING NOTHING should make it WORTH NOTHING, right... ?@! According to these "get what you pay for" people, putting a higher price tag on it makes it "worth more" - as if the price tag itself somehow improves the thing. Stuttered a bit, tried a couple of times to shift lanes and tell me some other version of that same story .. finally said "we may not be the company for you". I agreed and sent him on his way. Seriously, people -- don't be stuped and you wont get duped. CONSIDER what you are paying and what you are getting.
