comment What exactly does この通{とお}りmean?
@Pacerier Great question; that all has to do with the topic of "rendaku". More information can be found here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rendaku. There is also a nicely-formatted (though not necessarily accurate,) article written about rendaku here, as well: tofugu.com/2011/08/23/rendaku-sequential-voicing-japanese

comment When is it appropriate to use ごくろうさま?
@Chocolate true, true, that would be interesting; people my age always seem to end up using お疲れ〜 with me, and older people always seem to use ご苦労 with me, haha...

comment How to “shoo away” a sales clerk?
You could always say something like "thank you" and then just keep looking around on your own.

comment When is 終わる used as a transitive verb?
@TsuyoshiIto That does sound more natural, at least.

comment Are 終{お}わる and 済{す}ませる synonyms?
@dotnetN00b It looks like 済ませる would be for when there is a direct object, like in this example... but the meaning would still be relatively the same. But you might want to stick with 終わる・終える to keep things a bit more natural.

comment Are 終{お}わる and 済{す}ませる synonyms?
@dotnetN00b It sounds like the difference might be something like: use 済む here when you mean that something is "completely finished". Example: After you have (completely) finished your homework, you can have fun.

@Nap Interesting; maybe it's just a set phrase/usage, then...
