Me: Would you take $20.00 for both of these items?
Seller: These are $100.00 jeans
Me: Aren't they on sale for $25.00 + 1/3 off?
Me: Is the license plate also 1/3 off?
Me: Would $20.00 work for both items together
Seller: No, that comes to $22.11
Me: I'm not sure I have 11 cents
Seller: I'll give you a deal and take $22.00
Me: Ummm...Ok (awkwardly fumbling through my wallet for $22.00)
So here's the way that I see it...I am the world's worst negotiator - getting an 11 cent deal really doesn't count in the world of business...and therefore I will stick to teaching English. This whole situation reminded me of a similar one down in Florida, so I thought I'd flash it back for you on this Friday morning, and share a Florida Chick post from 2009...enjoy!
