Sooner or later the undeniable limitations will surface. If the limitations are severe, it is very difficult for the buyer to admit that the purchase was a mistake, because it reflects back on the buyer as well as the seller. Anger may be directed toward the seller. The more expensive the purchase, the harder it is to admit that it was a mistake. Sometimes denial will cause the buyer to keep trying to make the purchase work, when in fact it never will. The reason the product will never work may be due to misrepresentation of the product by the seller, lack of understanding of the product's capabilities by the buyer, or the incompetence of the buyer. May the buyer beware, so that the phrase "But it seemed like such a good idea at the time." will not need to be said.
