On shopping 2

There are two types of shops and shopkeepers.

Type 1 is where they will show you two items and expect you to pick up one of them. Every second they will ask you, "did you like this?" or "shall I pack this" or "shall I keep this aside", until at some point, you as a customer decide that you dont want anything.

Type 2 is where they never talk of a sale. They will patiently show you everything in the shop and then some. They will go to their "godown", get stuff from their neighbouring shop. All through, they just say, "No charges for browsing around" and all through, they never talk about closing the sale.

At the end, guess from where you will end up buying stuff?

Echoes in your market?
