Will You Take Less?
by Tom Franklin
Back in the 80s my wife's best friend was an older woman from Austria. This woman had lived through the European Depression that had preceded WWII and through the severe shortages that the war brought. When she became a war bride and married her US GI husband she moved to America to a comparative world of plenty. And yet, like most people who grew up in tight times, they forged ways of thinking that have never left her to this day. For instance, whenever they would go shopping one of her favorite phrases was, "Will you take less?"
According to The Wikipedia, Haggling (or bargaining or dickering) is:
"a type of negotiation in which the buyer and seller of a good or service dispute the price which will be paid and the exact nature of the transaction that will take place, and eventually come to an agreement. Bargaining is an alternative pricing strategy to fixed prices..it allows price discrimination, a process whereby a seller can charge a higher price to one buyer who is more eager (by being richer or more desperate)"
