I borrowed this one from 1001 Rules for My Unborn Son but it is very true, in fact never buy anything at night (be it a car, a house or even a cow).
I believe there is a deep philosophical statement in a Country and Western Song “Don’t the girls Get Prettier at closing time?”, (by Mickey Gilley) the same can be said for large purchase items (I am going to get in so much trouble for that one line, I am sure).
Any decision that you make after 6:00 PM, deserves to have your undivided attention, a good night sleep after that, and then a good rethink in the cold light of dawn. I am always astounded about how many “great ideas” I have had the previous evening that ended up looking pretty darn “flawed” in the morning.
Real Estate agents know that if they apply pressure later in the evening they can get folks to spend too much for a house, or buy a house they don’t really want. Car sales folk want you to walk into the show room in the evening, and they want to close the deal before you get a chance to think about things.
Any regrettable late night choices out there folks?
