Definition

For all the times you will hear a shopkeeper arguing with an aunty, bargaining over anything from talcum powder to gold. Heads will nod, hands will move in drama and each party will utter the same phrase over and over again, with increasing emphasis till aunty pretends to walk away from a potential purchase and shopkeeper grudgingly reduces the price by just enough to bring her back.

Usage

Aunty: This is my offer, full and final
Shopkeeper: I have said the price. That is my full and final.
