We go to a restuarant and pay Rs.500 for a dinner for 2 without bargaining ...

and add a tip of 20 bucks...

We buy a pair of shoes or a designer outfit or a costly watch -

all at MRP without wincing...and it costs a bomb!

But I am aghast to see such people who can very well afford such luxuries-

bargain hard with poor Below Poverty Line people like the street tailor,

flower seller ,sabzi wali or a poor daily wage earning laborer...

What are you going to save by this kind of hard bargaining?

2-50 rupees?

It means nothing to us but a lot to them,isnt it?

Why do they resort to this?

Some cheap thrill?

Or just to show their might?

I wonder...
