Immigration Preparation 

My immigration preparation booklet informed me that the US is a capitalist country where vendors and customers negotiate prices of goods. I’m off to the supermarket to put my new knowledge in practice and try to negotiate the price of tomatoes.

  1. “the US is a capitalist country ”

    Sweet pretty lies, the purest capitalism I think I ever saw was in communist and immediately post-communist Poland (and Mexico, extraordinarily capitalistic at street level).


  2. I don’t think I’ve ever in my life been able to, even once, negotiate the price on ANYTHING I’ve ever bought at any store.
    I simply find the item I’m after, then pay whatever price the store’s asking when I get to the cashier to check out.
