I'm surprised this bit got so little attention in this thread. The last time someone said something like this to me, it was a thinly veiled threat of, if not outright violence, then a pretty ugly scene. Here it sounds like a promise to shame/guilt/belittle you into forking over some dough.

...you've already decided to steer clear of this, but I'll add my own little bit. I've been on both sides of this. I had a dealer call me once about a used car I'd bought, and he told me that they'd made "a mistake" in the final price (how hard is it to subtract two numbers...agreed price on car and agreed price on tradein?) and I owed $XXX. I declined to pay.

Also I worked for a while at a small used dealer's lot (working in the parts dept, not sales), and what I learned was, they don't/won't do a deal that they're not already making money at. The profit's always there, somehow, somewhere; if it's not, they won't do the deal.

You're from the Midwest originally, right? Probably something like 30% of Midwesterners, Southerners, or people from other rural areas would actually give this guy the money.

Wow, you are stupid. Really, really dumb. Possibly insane. How old are you?

You don't think the simple, hard-working, God-fearing types would pay out a little money if someone made a reasonable argument that it was their responsibility to do so?

What about the kind of dumb, really naieve types of people?

These two categories of people don't make up ~1/3 of the non-coastal, non-urban U.S. population?

You are exaggerating and underestimating the mentality of certain Americans, imo. (I do think 30% is way too high of an estimate, but don't really consider quoted poster insane)

For the record I don't think you should give them a dime because it was there mistake...

But when I mentioned that my buddy should keep the extra grand he was given on accident by a casino cage... the two of us were FLAMED for being unethical priicks.

Funny that people have no problem ripping off car dealerships :-)
