My wife wanted to have durian yesterday. We stopped by at the roadside of Bangi, the road towards Equatorial Hotel Bangi from Fasa 4 Bangi.
By looking at the arrangement of the stall, it is clear that the durians at the right are at RM10 for 3 fruits.
The adik try to introduce those at the left, which is better looking. "bang ni D24, memang sedap, confirm puas hati."
"Tak mau D24, kita nak durian kampung je" my wife replied.
"ok, ok. Ni 3 biji 10 ringgit, akak pilih lah" the adik answered while pointing to the durian at both the left and right of the Price tag.
We chose this and that, and the adik quickly chopped open the durian and said, "Tengok kak, haa... isi bagus punya." even we din't ask him to do so.
"kalo mau yang ni satu je macam mana kira dik?"
"Ini mau timbang kak."
"WHAT!!!!" he said 3 for RM10, and now kena timbang? I got so angry, "kenapa adik kata 3 biji RM10?"
"Tak bang, yang tepi-tepi yang kurang elok tu je yang 3 biji RM10".
"Macam tu ke cara adik buat business? Itu tak ikhlas namanya tau!" I shouted. Angry.
"Semua memang buat macam tu. Yang ni RM14" The adik said the matter of factly. One durian at RM14, can u imagine!
"Awak ni buat business x ikhlas, awak perangai macam ini seumur hidup tak akan kaya!" My wife scolded him. But the adik buat derk je. I think he'd got so used to it that these words mean nothing to him.
I was disgusted, paid the money and left. I know, some may said why pay, but it's just my principle. No question asked. The durian turned out to be un-ripe and not edible.
No wonder some people just can't get successful in their business. Sincerity and good rapport was not shown. They're too short sighted to see how sincerity can shape good business. These type of people really disgusted me.
