January 29th, Somewhere in FL

Me- "Would you like to take home a set today?"
C- "The price is pretty good." (Pauses and speaks in Spanish to his wife. I understand the gist of what he's saying, but pretend not to.) "I'll buy it if you can give me another 20% off. Deal, my friend?"
Me- "Can't. I don't make those decisions on pricing, sir"
C- "Fine, give me 30% off, and I'll buy two sets!"
Me- "I have no control over the price. You are already getting a big discount."
C- "How much?" (I point at a sign and he reads)
Me- "60%. Buy two, and that's 120% off!" (At this point I had given up, and was joking with him, not expecting what came next.)
C- "Wow. OK, sounds great, friend." (Buys two.)
