Got a Monday customer on Thursday. Had one call pricing two mud grip tires. We told him that the size he wanted ,we did not stock but could special order them. I checked my distributors and found him some, then gave him a price.
He then asks what time today could we put them on. I reiterated a second time that we did not stock this tire and had to order it, but if he paid for the special order by 5 this evening we could have them tomorrow.
Now, here is where it gets funny and he evidently isn't listening to what he is spewing.
He says he won't have the money in the bank till Monday, but can he just give us his card number and we hold it till then, and order him the tires as he was going out of town tomorrow evening on a job.
I told him no, they had to be PAID for as they were special order, but to come in Monday when he got his money so he could pay for them and we would order them for Tuesday delivery.
OK Ready... here is his parting comment. I'll just have to buy them somewhere else today, since I am going to be gone for awhile. I tried to do business with you.
I had to wonder, how he is going to buy tires somewhere else with no money...... but maybe he can finance them. We do have a rent and roll tire down the road.
