Broke people do this

I haggle my way around things these days. My dad laughed when I said I haggled my tricycle fare twice last Monday.

“magkano?” i said.

“P40 na lang miss”

“ang mahal naman!!! P30 na lang”

hindi pwede P40 talaga singil namin dito.

i don’t believe him so I said “yih, P30 na lang sige na”

the driver scratches his head and then says “o sige na nga P30 na lang”.

Then on my way home I haggled my tricycle fare from P20 down to P15.

    >you can get away with it because you’re a girl. we, men, won’t haggle with trike drivers. if we do, they won’t listen anyway. if we insist, we’d probably end up hitting each other.
