Georges Clemenceau, The Tiger of France, told this story: “One day in a little village in the East Indies, I noticed a little statuette, and said to the dealer, “l like your statuette. How much is it?”
“Because it is you”, he answered “75 rupees”.
“Because it is you”, I answered, “I offer you 45 rupees”.
He raised his hands to heaven.
“Forty five rupees! You are making fun of me! What if anyone happened to hear of it?”
“Forty five rupees”, I said.
Then he made a fine gesture of indignation. “Impossible!
I would rather give it to you”.
“Agreed !”

I took the statuette, stuffed it into my pocket, and said, “you are extraordinarily kind, and I thank you.
But it is quite evident that this gift can only come from a friend to a friend. Consequently you won’t take it amiss if I in turn make you a gift”.
“Naturally not”.
“Well, here are forty five rupees to use in good works”. He took them and we parted, enchanted with each other.

Shrewd Bargaining!

Shrewd bargaining is typified by the woman who entered one of the large department stores of New York and ordered a yard of silk which had been priced at 35 cents a yard. After her purchase, there was left a remnant of one and a half yards, and the clerk suggested that she take it also.

“What do you want for it?”, she asked.
“Oh, 20 cents”, replied the clerk.
“Alright”, said his customer, “I will take it and you can keep the yard you just cut off”.
