No Time to Talk...

...Got Some Shopping To Do

I had not finished my Christmas shopping so I went back to try to find a bargain:

Saleswoman: I give you a good price because you are so cute.
The "being cute" tactic

Jeremy: You must be joking…. You think I’m a tourist! I live in Beijing. I lose face…I’m going somewhere else.
The "walking away" tactic

Salesman: My friend, I will give you a good price.

The “I lose money” tactic

Jeremy: No...I give you this and that’s it.
The “I don’t take no for an answer” tactic

Jeremy: So let’s see how much it is in €/$
The “I think I didn’t go low enough” dilemma

Maman taught me everything!
