Escaping from credit card agent
Huhuhu. Passing by credit card booth is always a nightmare to me. Their agents will stop you and will try so many things to persuade you to sign up. And you feel it’s really hard to escape as they will keep talking and keep following you if you are stepping away from them.
Being bumped with them quite often, I have my 2 favourite lines that work most of the time to end their attempt to persuade you to sign up. Let say the agent is trying to promote XYZ Credit Card.
The first one:
“Oh. I already have XYZ Credit card”
Knowing that you already owned the card, there’s no point for them to attend you and waste their time. They will definately stop bothering you once they here this.
And the second one:
“Aiseh. I just closed my XYZ Credit Card. I don’t like it”
This one is a bit harsh, but works. They know you have XYZ Credit Card before, and you closed it. They also know that we don’t like it. And again, they don’t want to waste their time inviting us to sign up to the thing that we hate.
But prevention is better than cure. Preventing yourself from being attended by the agents is also easy. When you know that you are about to pass the credit card booth, put your most “lansi”est face, don’t stare at them and walk straight. Believe me. The agent don’t dare to call you.
