Don’t be an arrogant cheapskate.
Just because you are in an inexpensive country doesn’t mean you can get everything you want for next to nothing. A sure way to embarrass yourself is to try bargaining for a discount on a magnet souvenir that costs 1 lev ($0.56). You might really need the small change for your next big purchase. A 1.20 lev ($0.68) pizza slice that is. Pay no respect for our culture by dragging your local friend, who is excited for you to try Bulgarian beans soup and shopska salad, across town for a dirt-cheap fast food meal you can find in your home country. To make a cheapskate nickname last longer, act like the 20 lev bill in your pocket can buy a whole clothing store, along with the shop keeper.
