I`ve recently been thinking we ought to get something sorted re this topic. We are 67 and 72. We have very little money and no life insurance.
I don't want to leave the sorting out to our daughters.
Hubby is reluctant to talk about the inevitable.
I rang a firm today and had to end the conversation abruptly, due to the attitude the saleswoman.
She took all our details and came up with a plan.
She wanted £300 deposit and a promise of £82 a month for a 10 year plan.....TODAY!
I said I couldn't give a yes or no without talking to my OH.
She became pushy, telling me what a bargain offer I was getting and began to bully me into speaking to my OH there and then.
I told her he was busy and I had to pick my moment when to broach the subject. She continued to bully me into making a decision.
I asked her to send the info in the post. She said it was a one day offer and would go up in price if not taken today.
I told her she was bullying me and rang off.
I have sent a complaint in and suggested she be re-trained in her telephone sales skills.
What would you have done?
