Fuck right off....

My wife does a fair amount of buying and selling on Facebook. She likes to decorate the house and it is basically a never completed project. She funds this by selling the old stuff. So often she gets comments of "What's the lowest price you will do?". Who opens a negotiation like that? If you want the item for less than the asking price, make a fucking offer.

Does anyone actually post an item for sale like "This is $500, but I'll take $400"? No, they don't.

In summary, show some fucking fortitude and make an offer. Don't be a lazy bitch and ask "What's the lowest price you will do?". It's basically common courtesy in business to open with an offer...

Also, if you shake hands with a limp hand(the dead fish), you should be ashamed of yourself.

my answer to that would have been, "What I posted the price as"

Amount you want them to pay + amount you're willing to haggle = selling price

Then, 'What's the lowest price you will do?' = Amount you want them to pay, less the amount you're willing to haggle.

That's exactly what I told my wife, V. When someone asks this, just reply with the asking price.

She always puts stuff up in the formula R noted, but I refuse to reply with a price less the haggle amount. Haggle or don't, it's the buyers choice.

my favorite is 'but all I have is £5, would you take that?'

Or when you put something up for free and people ask if you'll deliver it....

I was always a fan of Last Man Standing when he noted their lay away plan...

Now, here's how it works.
You spend few months laying away the money.
And when you have enough, you come on down and buy the gun.
