I hate Hagglers.
Frequent Customer puts a bunch of valuable back issues on the counter. "Hey can I get a deal on these?"
I look up the books. They're priced at $10, $10, and $30 in our store. Online they're priced at $35, $35, and $80. "No. Sorry. These are going for three times what we have them stickered for. If you don't end up buying them, I'm going to at least double the price on them. But I will honor their sticker price for you."
"Could I get them for $40?" he asks.
"Nope. They're priced at a total of $50. It's $150 worth of books. You're already getting a great deal."
"$45?" he asks.
"$125?" I offer.
"The guy who used to work here would give me deals."
"I am giving you a deal. You're getting these books for A Third of what they're worth. And since you're getting three copies of the same issue, I'm guessing you're going to resell them. You are getting a tremendous deal at $50. If you don't buy them, they will be a total of at least $100 the next time you come in. Probably $150."
"What's the condidion of the books being sold for those prices. These are pretty dinged up."
They are not.
"8.0. These are all at least 9.0s."
"Is your coworker around?" Fucko The Clown asks.
"Nope. And if he was, he'd probably charge you $100 for these. Do you want them?" I pick up the pricing gun and put it on the counter.
"I guess I'll get them, then. You sure you can't do $45?"
He left, having bought them.
