    " As any reputable business would"

    Exactly.

    Now, a funny story I've told before.

    A few years ago, we had a Red Tag sale and most of our new car inventory had red tags hanging form the rear view mirrors.

    Tagging the lot was a huge job for the Lot Attendants and they followed a list.

    Well, we made a HUGE mistake! We tagged an Odyssey at a price that would have lost us over 2500.00! Simply a matter of putting the wrong tag in the wrong car.

    A large family landed on this car.

    Knowing a mistake had been made, the salesperson brought the tag to our Sales Manager. It was like, OMG!!!

    But...believe it or not, these people actually offered LESS!!

    So, I went out and explained to them what had happened. I told them we were willing to take this huge loss.

    Didn't matter! They still offered less.

    So, I told them..." I will honor this price NOW...if you leave, I will change the tag and put on the correct price.

    This resulted in a huddle where they discussed this in their native tongue.

    " No!..We will pay you XXXX"

    Me..." we really hope you do leave because I am not kidding,,,I will change the tag as soon as you leave our lot"

    And so, they left.

    Two hours later, they screamed into our showroom...." We take the car!"

    " OK, great! It's still a great deal at the revised price!"

    I know what they did. They spent those tow hours frantically driving to the neighboring Honda stores trying to get a better deal than our mismarked tag"

    They left slowly shaking their heads.

    We dodged a huge bullet that day!

    Had they done their homework, they would have known it was mis-priced.

    Not an educated consumer...

    They simply outsmarted themselves.

    What a happy day that was for me!
