The [not-so] Win-Win Conversation

We are smokers.  For the past few years, we have always bought our cigarettes in cartons from few shops around our place.  It is cheaper that way rather than to get a pack a day. 

For the last six months, we decided to change our 'supplier' from the mama shop to a provision seller cos we got extra dollar off.

Obviously, our mama friend is not happy.  As I passed by his shop the other day, this conversation took place:

Mama - "Hey, long time no buy cigarettes ah? Stop smoking?'

Me - "No lah, still smoking"

Mama - "Then how come no buy anymore?  Buy from somewhere, is it?"

Me - "Yup."
Mama - "Alamak, how much they sell you?"
Me - "Got extra $1 off there"

Mama - "Aiya, only $1 extra.  Buy from me lah"

Me - "You will give $3 discounts?"

Mama - "Cannot lah.  Don't make money. Buy from me lah.  Help me"

Me - "Then who will help me?"

Mama went quiet.

We hope we can get a supplier when we move to the west.
