He wants more money to send his kids to college? $52k isn't enough with proper investment until they come of age? Call his bluff...

A CSS: In class, we had an exercise where we were supposed to negotiate a price for a valuable item.  Another team was bidding on the same item.  My team figured out how to get around the competition and offer a really low price.

I had to remind them not to make the offer so low that the owner of that item would decide not to sell the item at all.

Because my teammates don't read Fark, they argued that he wouldn't do that because then he wouldn't get anything out of it; it wouldn't be a smart move.

I suggested that that hypothetical owner might be a megalomaniac more concerned with his ego more than getting money.  If we wanted the item (and lives were at stake in this scenario), we could not afford to insult him

/They did eventually agree to raise the amount we were offering.
