Rickshaw Shenanigans

Ben and I have discovered we both have different ways of bargaining with rickshaw drivers.

Ben’s way

Ben: Do you know Delhi Gate

Rickshaw Driver: *wobbles head* (this means yes/no/maybe/I don’t understand what you’re saying)

Ben: How much?

Rickshaw Driver: 80 rupees. Special Indian Price

Ben: 80 Rupees! Too much. 70?

Ricksaw Driver: ok.

Bohdanas way

Bohdana: Do you know Delhi Gate?

Rickshaw Driver: *wobbles head* (this means yes/no/maybe/I don’t understand what you’re saying)

Bohdana: How much?
Rickshaw driver: 80 Rupees. Special Indian Price.

Bohdana: 80 rupees! That’s too much, it’s right around the corner. 50 rupees.

Rickshaw Driver: no, no it’s very far * moves hand in snaky direction*. Ok special price 70 rupees.

Bohdana: NO. 50 rupees. I’ll ask this other driver.

Rickshaw Driver 2: 70 rupees, very good price.

Bohdana: Ok, we’ll walk *starts walking*.

Rickshaw Driver 1: Ok ok 60 rupees.

Bohdana: No, 50.

Rickshaw Driver 1: ok, ok get in.

 

*I’ve just show this to Ben for approval and he says he will post his own version of events soon. Stay tuned.
