$14 what a crappy low offer, if he'd said $85-90 then I'd probably say, yes i'll take it.

I like getting a good deal if i can, nothing wrong with a haggle now and then but everyone has to feel like they're getting a deal (no one looses out), business as usual lol.

Then you would have overpaid for a used watch since the new ones are $70 on eBay.

Nope! I don't bother, I pay full price or will make a fair offer. If not accepted, then that is the end of it for me, I will not waste my time or theirs haggling over a few bucks. My time is worth more than that.

What a shrewd spender. Couldn't even round it up to 15.00

I don't lowball, and won't hesitate to insult those people on their way out.

For example, I sell some odd things on craigslist. This one time, I listed my old silver trumpet for $200 (it wasn't worth much more than that). Some guy wanted to buy it for $75, and I laughed at him telling him I'd sooner donate it than let a lowballer walk away with the sale (guy was an instrument dealer). Seeing as he continued to get snarky, I kept true to the word as I was contacted to sell the trumpet to a church for a donation slip (sent him a copy of the receipt).

If I really want something, and am not willing to pay the price they have offered, I will offer about 80-85% of the marked cost (IE: $85-ish for a $100 item). I try to keep it reasonable, and don't try to convince them if they say no the first time. I'll either attempt to find the money, or rationalize why I really want it.
