Business owner respects customers

Dear Editor,

In regard to Mr. Mann’s last letter (Jan. 1):

“Obviously” I did not get my point across. Let me make it clear. The dealer said that the price on the chairs was what he would take. Your choice at that point was to “either pay the amount requested or go somewhere else to shop.”

Unfortunately your wife started the whole confrontation when she asked if the dealer thought he could get the price marked on the chairs. If this was not rude and sarcastic, what was it? Is this what she normally says to a merchant? The “common decency” that everyone should expect was not evident.
