Dude, that is so true.. except, I've only experienced that in foreign countries. I think Thailand was the best. They had these really cool wooden umbrellas, and the guys would come up to us and say... For you! 100 Baht! (about $2.50), and you could tell that it was already a low price, in the states you would pay about $100 for the same thing.. Anyways, some guys would say... No, 20 Baht... ($.50, right?) Well they would get all offended and stuff, start cussing you out, but these guys love to bargain, so they'll do it until you get tired... Finally, you get the price down to 50 cents, and then you tell them, "Ahh.. nevermind, I don't want it anymore".... They would get soooo pissed!!
Ahh.. Thailand.. The only place in the world where you can get a T-shirt, meal, and a full "service" for only $20...
