I agree with the previous comment.
This is America and if you don't read the contract (no matter how long it takes) you should EXPECT . . . TO GET SCREWED!!!
If you don't think they're counting on you not reading every word, then you're half way there already. That's exactly what they expect and that's why they put a lot of what they do in their contracts.
Now, if you want to know how to fix this type of deceptive business practice, I suggest Everyone take their contract, with their salesperson, and sit down with them and go over every "Cotton Picken Word", Word for Word, and make sure they make you understand everything in it, "No Matter How Long It Takes".
This might sound ridiculous, but you can bet that after enough people make this a practice not only there but everywhere, a lot of this kind of thing will be changed.
"It's Just Good Business" and when you make a deal with a businessman, you better learn to be one!
One last thing . . . No businessman has ever been sucessfull without first learning how and when to walk away from a deal.
Smile, Be Polite, and Empathetic, and above all, Don't complain, Make them Explain!
