Not only the buzzwords but the a-hole sellers that fly off the handle and run you off the property, calling you a "pawn star wannabe" for daring to offer even $1 less than the asking price!

It's called haggling, and it's how the prices of things are determined, even the things you pay a "fixed" price for at Walmart. All those things are made from raw materials called commodities, and commodity prices are determined through haggling.

You can't fault a guy for taking a chance either. There's no way to know if the seller will take less unless you offer less. If you don't ask and he would've taken less, you're out $$$.

The point is not to insult the seller, because that's counterproductive to the transaction. Haggling is not personal, but so many people take it personally. Probably stems from an emotional attachment to what they're trying to sell... Maybe if you love it so much you shouldn't be selling it in the first place.

Ya,you stand here and deal with some a-hole who wants to know if they can make payments,or they don't want it for themselves,but they think they know where they can trade it for something that they do want. And won't I help them out and take less,because if they pay what I want,then trade it off,they aren't saving much. Or the jackwagon who doesn't even have a clue about the model,much less what they're really talking about,trying to tell me everything about something I've had for over 30 years and know every little thing that's wrong with it and have figured in to the price. Just don't get all pizzed and defensive when I say I won't take any less. It ain't gonna get you a deal.

I'm not the only one who doesn't like to even try to sell anything anymore since all these TV shows came out. Looks like the agrivation among sellers is showing up on CL don't it?
