Okay so I cannot be in bidding wars. I don't like the feeling. I lost the camera in the very last minute, no kidding, the last minute and still my final losing bid was more than I wanted to pay. So eff it I purchased a camera via the buy it now method and paid $1 less than the list price at wally world. I am okay with that because I just don't enjoy the rush. My heart is still beating from the last bidding loss. That was about an hour ago.
In China I paid full price for everything because a) it was still not a lot compared to the US of A and b) I hate bidding wars. So one vendor came down from his own price when we didn't bid back. I guess he felt sorry for us. There was nothing I bought (except the stroller at the WS) that I paid too much for. And I did that on the next to last day because one of the side shops said everyone was out of strollers. I guess they were out and didn't want me to go to another expecting me to come back. I will say I love the stroller and so does Glenys especially for zoo days.
See this is one reason I don't gamble or do drugs or shop lift. I can't stand the rush people get from those actions. It is not fun for me!!!!
