Asian people are very clever. When asians walk into asian shops, they know what they want and the price that they are willing to pay. Asians proceed to barter and bargain until their price is met. However, the shop owner, more times than none, has probably seen the same routine several times that same day. It is the shop owners job to hike up the prices so that non-asian people can be deceived. This is how the shop owner makes their “profit“. Asians know that when something says 20 dollars, it actually means 3 or 4. It’s a secret asian law.
After the asian completes their bargain, it is only necessary and proper, as a friend or coworker to complement them. Asians like bragging about how much money they saved, even if it is only 1 or 2 dollars. It shows how mentally adept and thrifty they are. They are maximizing utility and marginal costs at all times. Due to this, you should know that presents asians give are never the price the box says. Chances are, the “for sale” price tag has been removed to enforce the Asian’s wealth and prosperity.
Disclaimer: Beware! Bartering is not for everyone. Asians know better than to bargain at Walmart or Target. It is only safe to barter at flea markets and small asian shops in China Town. However, it can be very humorous to try.
