So today, on my way back to Muar, I saw a sign of dragon fruit 3kg for RM10.
"Eh, Ju. Nak beli ke dragon fruit? Apsal dia advertise dekat sgt dgn stall? Kan dah terbabas."
"Takpe la, kita u-turn, lagipun mami hari tu nak beli dragon fruit."
Then we u-turn.
I saw the sign RM6.50/kg.
"Dik, yang mana 3kg rm10?"
"Owh.. Yang tu dah habis la bang!" Regardless whether true or not, I felt like I was been cheated by this small guy. I felt like to slept him on his face, start my car and just move!
Try to calm myself, I try to negotiate the best deal I can get. Finally comes out with rm4.50/kg. Which lead to rm1.60 average each.
A good deal compare to Jusco selling at rm3.65 each.
3 lessons learned today.
1. Marketing gimmick can generate traffic. (But please don't cheat!).
2. Handle the tamper properly, then you can make rationalize thinking. (Or else I have to buy rm3.65 each at Jusco).
3. As T. Harv Eker said "In business, you don't get what you deserve. You get what you negotiate!"
