When Customers Talk At Your Back

On a recent trip to Rewalsar (Tso-Pema), I noticed people going about lake with their prayer wheels. As a human, I wanted it. And I wanted it so bad. The shop in front of my hotel was selling it but the price seemed too high, it always is (for tourists). Being the miser and non-tourist kind I am, I did what any customer would do: Ask other customers. It was a bit difficult but not as difficult as overpaying and taught me anther great lesson: Customers talk to other customers.(think: social media) Be where they will ask. And be the best for those who can answer - your present customers. Nothing markets you as good as your present customers. Those who overpriced, are bastards in my eyes. Don't be one of them.
