Some of you might recall my earlier post on the Autorickshaws (Auto’s in short) in Chennai. I had the opportunity to catch a live scene of a passenger and the driver haggling over the price before she boards.
Beware and keep your management techniques ready for an hard negotiationwhen hiring these guys in Chennai aka Madras.
stuff that should be taught in schools and colleges!
Ram : or even at the primary schools (along with their parents while getting admissions 🙂 )
ha ha! you should try being a foreigner and haggle with these guys! it’s quite an experience. I have to say – travelling by rikshaw was my favorite mode of transportation & once I learned what the prices SHOULD be, haggling was kind of fun. :>)
Ram : I can completely visualise & empathise the fun you might have had haggling while in Chennai, Rachel.
I know we way overpaid our rickshaw drivers while we were there. But that didn’t bother me at all because I knew they were just trying to make a living. We really liked both of them…even took them into the snake park with us so they weren’t waiting out in the parking lot for us!
Ram : Thats a fresh thought & very humane to treat them as a fellow human than a driver. Hats off! 😀
