Little Ms. Drama

My young friend Matt asked this question in his Cambodia page:

What will you do if suddenly this poor kid with a cute Cambodian English accent (That's nice to mimic!) suddenly leeches on you (without you asking), forces you to do the bargaining game with him and constantly harrasses you to buy his postcards? Will you:
A.) Pity the kid and buy his stuff.
B.) Politely say no and no until he leaves.
C.) Scream at him and harass him back! ?


Well, in our case it was this little 5 y.o. girl selling handmade bamboo objects that make a clicking sound when you shake it. She had her spiel down pat and had my friend's number. It's Letter A for my friend and the girl skipped happily off to look for another sucker (Me!). It cost us a dollar each and a little bit of pride as we drove off... our companions poking fun at us for our "high sucker quotient".

If you have a tender heart and you see these little kids coming, hold on tight to your wallet and run to the opposite direction. But if melting eyes and sing-song voice has no effect on you, then you'll be just fine! :)

    Wow! nice Angkor Wat page. But please complete. During 5-7th entury Indian Emperors sent ambassadors to SEA to spread Buddhism and peace. These are result of these. I am sure going to visit some day!

    Bring back fond memories. Enjoyed your tips about the children selling souvenir. When I was there, I was impressed by their language skills in Japanese and English, now they have taken up acting skils. "Spare a postcard for a poor boy, Madam." LOL
