10 Types Of People You Should Never Bargain With In India
Bargaining is a part and parcel of Indian life and culture. Right from your
subziwala to that car salesman, Indians bargain with anybody and everybody. It's
almost a feeling of pride when you bargain and get something for cheaper, even
if it's just Rs 10 less. However, there are people you should never bargain with
in the country. Why? Read on to know.
If you think tourist guides overcharge you, think again. If the guide you are
employing is a government-licensed tourist guide, then he has had to put in a
lot of effort to become one. Did you know that tourist guides have to undertake
an intensive 3-year training course on any monument and clear all history exams
before getting their license? Also, despite all the effort and them being
employed by the government, they earn no fixed salary. They only earn what the
tourists give them during the peak season. During the off-season, they hardly
have any earnings. So the next time you hire a tourist guide, try not bargaining
with him for the price and let him earn his keep.
