My parents never bargained and never did we kids. Good thing about living in a smaller town is that the vegetable/ fruits seller come to the street according to your schedule and it’s almost a sort of family. They will bring the best stuff and make sure to deliver it to their favorite families first. With rickshaw wallas, my mom always said that the poor guy is going to pull our combined weight, we should not haggle the price . I noticed this multiple times growing up that the vendors can judge who is going to haggle and who is not. Many times we will say yes to the price of rickshaw and then the rickshaw wala will say- behan ji, aap me kam nahi karwaye paise, thode de do and my mom would still give the same price. We had this experience at a clothing showroom once. We always shopped at the same shops in our town and they already knew we won’t haggle so gave fair price. Once we went to a new shop and the shopkeeper gave us Rs. 200 discount on the bill. This was in late 90s early 2000s. I even bought my first car in the USA without negotiating. My friends gave me hard time because I could have saved at least 2-3k. J learned that lesson and since then every car we have bought, I do the negotiations (my husband would pay in full).
