"The salespeople who have lost me are the old school men who have an unsaid "little lady" at the end of their sentences and the ones who ask where my husband is."

I have to tell you, that occurred during last Summer's car purchase. Bob the salesmanager, a grizzled old character, kept directing his answers to me, even when my wife asked, which really pissed her off. If it weren't for the fact that the car had 0%/60 month finance and $2500 cash back incentives, and, was not a high demand vehicle, we would have walked out in a heartbeat. We were willing to put up with that because in the end, we got a great deal on a new car.

I couldn't help thinking though, as the guy talked us, how many other sales to women he lost, because of that attitude.
