How Much Would You Pay For Me?
You have to admire the creativity of a dude that is willing to ask three foreigners "How much will you pay for me?" in less-than-stellar English because his girlfriend (who is sitting at the next table) told him to.
Julian, Jeve, and I were sitting at Pizza Holiday when this guy comes up and asks us for our support because he is with his girlfriend. The following conversation ensued:
"My girlfriend sells me for any price."
"My girlfriend wants sell me. You pay what price?"
"Wait. Your girlfriend wants to sell you and is trying to find out how much money she could make?"
"Ok. What are you offering us? What are your skills? Can you cook?"
"I'm a doctor."
"A doctor, cool. So you can perform free surgeries?"
"Yes. I can do that."
"Wonderful. That is increasing your price."
"Ok, so how much you pay?"
After a moment's deliberation, I blurted out, "One-hundred thousand manats!"
His girlfriend seemed impressed. It was perhaps the most random thing that has happened to me in this country. Given the inherent creativity, I was glad to play along.
