On last Sunday me and my father went to Saddar ( Kashmir Road, rwp ) to get New tires for our car. When we parked our car beside the shop, two Rubber walas came and one asked my Father about replacing Windshield Wiper rubbers. My father refused, and then the two persons began to work on their Plan B.
One of the man started convincing my Father about windshield wipers, by saying something like "Ye to sirf 25 main ho jay ga. Main abhi badl daita hun. Bus abhi ho jay ga. Aap dekhain". They started to lift our car wipers without any hesitation, and I don't think that they gave any time to my Father to take a decision. However, as they were being so willing, my father agreed. My father asked me to to stay out of this and to go to the Tire wala about the Tires.
Later on, as one of them was doing Wipers, I felt that the person was cheating us, he did not kept himself to the Windshield wiper's blades but also replace the Wiper components as well. I don't think it was necessary.
Now for the worst part, as one man was busy with the Wipers the other man Opened our Car's door and started fitting rubbers and saying something like "Ye dekhain ye khrab hai, ye abhi main aap logon ko laga deta hun". When the person with the Wipers finished, he joined him.
Both persons were running around the car, opening doors, bonnet and the trunk. They managed to open doors and then bonnet because me and my Father did not locked the car. They opened the Trunk because of their luck, as the Tire walas had opened the Trunk for taking the Spare tire.
Meanwhile, both men were saying things like "Ye badlnay wala hai", "Ye mainay laga dia hai", "Ye main abhi laga deta hun". Both were using words as if they were really favoring us, but it was evident that they simply didn't care.
Me and my father started asking the two men to Stop. But Both men didn't stopped till my father shouted at them with warnings about No Payment. My father asked them Individually about payment. The people asked high prices and started saying things like "Ye bhi lagaya hai", " Wo bhi lagaya hai". My father didn't fought and paid them.
I don't know the price exactly, but I think it was like 8000 something.
I also don't know much about these Rubber stuff, but do know that they don't worth that much that a Person must get them replaced asap.
The problem was that both me and my father don't have enough Social skills to deal with such people. Such social skills require tactics and force.
Most of people seem to have enough skills to deal with such crooks, but some comparatively Naive people are the main Target for their traps.
Always keep your Car locked and warn such people about No Payment. But don't let them Touch your car without your True will. This Trend must be Discouraged.
Edit: Some people Highlighted that I mentioned that the Rubber walas charged Rs 8000. Actually my Father did the Payment, I don't know the amount but I had 8000 in my Mind so I mentioned it. Sorry if it caused misconception, I don't know much about prices.
