The Customer is Not Always Right

I was in Korea recently (shows for the troops). I was in a shopping area of Seoul called Itaewon. The Army shows pay, but with the selling tactics of the local Korean vendors, it was hard for me to come home with any of the money I made. One older lady actually called me stupid a few times during our “negotiations.” There was no way I was getting out of her shop without buying something. She kept coming down on the price and/or showing me other things. “What, you no want authentic Korean plate for 50 dollar?! You stupid! Okay, How about nice jewelry box for your girlfriend for 40 dollar? Special just for you! You stupid! How about…” I showed her how stupid I was… I bought two things.
