It can be a little scary, and I’m sure it can be stressful at times.
Booking a hotel in India can be one of the more stressful things to do, so it should be no surprise that booking a hotel online can feel a little like being in a time loop. The more of your life you spend online, the more likely you are to end up spending time online. For the most part you’ll just keep on logging on, but if you’re a particularly active online user, the next thing you’ll probably know is that you’re in a time loop.
Thats when you call up the travel agent and ask them to book your hotel room the next time you log in. The best way to avoid doing this is to set up a specific time to just get through the booking process. And if youre like me, you may set this as a reminder.
If youre like me, you probably set this for the very beginning of the booking process. So if you decide to go online and do a search for your desired destination, youll be directed to a page where you can check availability for the room. So you can see when there might be a decent rate and book it that day.
A few minutes into this video, a guy says, “We’re getting close.” Then the video cuts to the background and a man says, “We’re getting closer.” After several minutes the audio cuts back to the guy saying “We’re getting closer.” and then the video cuts back to the guy saying “We’re getting closer.
This is from the same guy, and the guy in the video is actually the same guy who is in the video. So there’s no surprise there. In theory you can’t get a better price online by trying to be sneaky and look desperate. But in practice, it’s a bit like when you go to get a cup of coffee and the coffee shop keeps pouring it out. It’s a bit of a Catch-22 of sorts.
A lot of people assume that there must be a certain amount of desperate people out there, but that assumption is quite wrong. There are always lots of people willing to pay the price for a cup of coffee, and there are also lots of people who are willing to wait a month or so and do nothing about it.
We’re talking about people who want to pay a bit more for their coffee than what the price is on the internet. We’re talking about people who have always wanted to be able to go to a coffee shop anywhere in the world, but have been deterred by the cost. We’re talking about people who are willing to pay more money for their coffee than the price on the internet.
This is the problem with the US. We are so obsessed with the notion of convenience that we forget we are dealing with millions of people who are willing to pay a lot more for their coffee than the price on the internet. The average cost of a cup of coffee is about $3.30. However, the majority of coffee shops in the US charge between $3.30 and $5.00. (We are talking about US based stores, there are others who do the same thing.
When you’ve been buying coffee for years and you’ve never even paid for it, it is not likely to be a priority for you. At the moment you can’t make coffee because you don’t have to see it to figure out it’s time to buy it. That’s why I like to pay more than the price of coffee to buy it.
