Have you ever negotiated rates with road side vendors or fruit seller?It is quite common to see in Vegetable markets or on the road side , customers negotiate the rates with the vendors and bargain for discounts. Particularly ladies are more proficient in negotiating with these vendors and get the best price.
Have we ever thought how much money we would have saved by squeezing these poor vendors?. Few rupees!!. Whereas when we go to bigger shops and malls , we find the big boards written " FIXED PRICE". We don't negotiate with them. It is question of our prestige and we pay the billed amount without uttering any word.
Why this double standard with the poor vendors, can we not be more sympathetic to them?
