Don’t Hate the Player, Hate the Game

I hate bargaining. I hate knowing that I’m being ripped off when a seller is telling me to pay nearly $300 for a (pretty lightweight) silver cuff bracelet. C’mon, I do enough scouring on the Web and shopping for jewelry on QVC.com that I know what’s a fair price for a piece of silver. Anyway, the only thing I bought for myself in Playa del Carmen was this silver ring. When I first saw it, I immediately thought of the Robert Lee Morris for Elizabeth and James knuckle brass ring.

Honestly, trying to bargain with the vendors sometimes takes way too much effort. I think that’s partially why I didn’t really buy anything, plus I had to save up dough for the items I’ve been lusting after pre-Mexico. Here are some pics I took during our many shopping excursions.

Plus, my Freddy Miguel wouldn’t approve of these if I ever brought one home. Yes, I named my stuffed animal monkey Freddy Miguel.
