They say "never judge a book by its cover" how right it felt today. An interesting thing happened at work today, I was sitting in my office and a call came, one of the sales people took the call in the outside office, for 15 mins I overheard a conversation between a prospective client and my sales staff, he was asking for a discount of Dhms. 200 on a Price of Dhms. 600. The sales staff is not authorized to give that price and the buyer was not willing to go elsewhere, after being amused by the conversation for some time I asked the sales staff to transfer the call to me and figured might as well have some fun, what can I say it was quite boring today.
I tried to explain to the guy that the price he was asking was not worth it for me, but he was adamant that he wanted that price and he wanted that price from me. After another 15 mins of conversation, I figured he'd earned it, told him it was his and he would be picked up by the driver at the designated place. Hung up the phone, called the guy a "KANJOOS" (miser), and went on looking blankly at the computer screen. When the driver came back, he said he had been tipped Dhms 200. the amount the fellow had haggled over for half an hour. He wasn't Kanjoos after all.
