Bargaining for fresh coconuts in Fiji


Drove and stopped by a roadside stall selling fresh coconuts in the late afternoon. And of course, you gotta bargain abit.

Mum: How much for coconuts?
Seller: $2
Mum: sa…Too much… I buy a few
Seller: How many you want? $1.50 then
Mum: ummm…
Seller (counting): 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9…9 here
Mum: 9 too many. We’ll get 6
Seller: ok
Seller: how about $1 each for all?
Mum: huh?..ehhh…ok… so $9 for all 9?
Seller: yeah (starts loading all into car)
