Negotiating in Mexico

As everyone knows you can always negotiate for a better price for things here in Mexico. Examples of this range from taxi drivers to restaurants to souvenir stores to...well you get the idea. After being here in good old Mexico for nearly a year I have come to the conclusion that although I am always looking for a good deal and a good value, I am not going to hammer some poor Mexican taxi driver or shop owner for 10 or 20 pasos (.80- 1.50 USD). It in fact kinda pisses me off when some gringo with a shiny, fancy boat brags while sipping an expensive margarita in the pool how they bargained some poor unfortunate soul down and saved themselves 75 cents.
On a different note, today I went by a local restaurant that is sponsoring a children's Christmas present event. I picked two kids names off of a Christmas tree and will be going Christmas shopping soon for my kids, Jesus and Saira.
God bless.
