My best friend has not been out of the country a lot and I think that is a good thing. I think that it is good that she has been able to travel around the country first and get a feel for what it is like around our own country before she got to go out and see what other countries were like, especially since she designed a leather handbag. I had a few dollars saved and took her to Paris and to Rome for the summer. We went and bought nice leather bags from a woman who said her family owned the tannery where the leather came from. I really do not know if that is the truth, or if she was just saying that to make me feel better about buying from her. I just wanted to make sure that my girlfriend and I were not going to go and get ripped off so we actually went and asked for a few dollars off each bag and she said yes.
I think that it can be very comforting to have someone tell you that you were getting a good deal after you try to make a bargain with a person selling something. Before I could even get out a counter offer to what she was going to say, I knew that she was going to tell me that she had a deal. I wanted to be sure that it was something that was going to work out for both of us but I did not want her to think that I was actually out and trying to take advantage of her. My friend said that I was not offensive in my first offer and that I was really getting a great deal. This made me feel so happy to know that was the case and I was happy.
