Russell Peters Shops For a Purse at Pacific Mall Bargaining with Chinese Man to be The Man
Are you Chinese?
Ooo. I said. Ooo. I just said your last name.
That you can't do business together - Chinese people and Indian people cannot do business together. Cause Indian cannot live without a bargain. And Chinese people cannot give you a bargain. Their objective is to get every penny from you. And our is to keep everything. This is a really power struggle here. I went to this Chinese mall, some of you may know it, pacific mall. That's a wrong place for an Indian guy to go. I saw this bag. I wanted to buy this bag. I go, "How much?"
He goes, "35 dollars."
"um. How about 30?"
And Chinese people never tell you no. They will tell you no, the longest no you ever heard in your life like you just said the most ridiculous thing that they ever heard in your life.
"I give you 30."
"Noooooo. Nooooo. I can't do 30 dollars. If I sell you 30 dollars today, today you come tomorrow I close down."
I'm like, "Alright, give me a deal on the purse. I don't want to pay 35 bucks."
"Ok. One second. Let me talk to my wife. One second. Thank you. Dim lah. Xing. Xing. Chew Chew Wah. Han Goi. Ok. You seem like a nice guy. I give you best price, 34.50."
I'm like, "That's 50 cents."
He goes, "50 cents is alot of money! YOu save 50 cents here, and then maybe you go somewhere else and save another 50 cents. Then you have 1 dollar. Then you take your dollar. You go to the dollar store, and you buy something else."
This guy starts turning into my money manager or something, "Let me financial plan for you."
I'm like, "You know what dude. Forget it. I don't want it. It's not a deal."
He starts telling me some stuff that has nothing to do with anything.
I'm like, "I'm leaving."
He goes, "Hey! Be a man! Be a man! Do the right thing!"
"What you talking about doing the right thing?"
"Maybe you don't buy the purse right now. You go some other mall, and you see something else. You don't buy. You come back. You say, 'eh, I want the purse for 34.50.' I say, 'Noo. You don't get for 34.50.' Now price goes up 40 dollars - Be a man."
