Whenever possible, I try to negotiate prices down. It drives my wife insane but hey, I save a lot of money just by asking. Anyway... Today at a garage sale I saw something I though I could resell for good money on eBay. It was $8 so I offered him $5. Stupidity ensued.... Me: Would you take 5 for this? Him: How much is it? Me: 8. Him: How about six? Me: Hmmm... How about 7. Him: Sure! Me: DOH! Oh man, I felt so stupid! ahahaha. I gave him my 7 bucks and ran to the car, he's probably still laughing his ass off.
